There has been a large amount of speculation as to what kind of game
Phantasy Star Universe is from a single player PS game to a sequel to
PSO to a MMORPG. Atleast that question is now answered.

www.the-magicbox.com

Sega confirmed that the MMORPG Phantasy Star Universe will be coming to
PlayStation 2 and PC in Japan sometimes this winter. The game will
support up to 65 players simultaneously.

- UNCONFIRMED: EGM reported that Phantasy Star Universe is scheduled to
launch in US on November 20, the game will be heading to both PS2 and
Xbox.

I liked the offline in PSO, but the thing of it was you had to go
through the offline quests and read all the message capsules to get the
story. A lot of people just blew off the messages and had no real idea
what was going on.

interesting, thanks for posting this info. I'm hoping Phantasy Star
Universe contains a strong story, and a strong offline RPG component (PSV?)
unlike any of the PSO games.

Ok, although I'm very interested in this game, isn't sega dooming itself to
fail by releasing this type of game right at the very end of this
generation??.

Now getting a beast like this as a launch or close-to-launch for the next
gen could be fantastic for them...... but then again, we are talking about
sega......

well.. atleast the PS3 is backwards compatible. Also, they're probably
going to do the same thing as FFXI and make it cross-platform with PC.
Dunno about the XBOX version though.

I don't know about anyone else but I never buy a console at release I always
wait 2 or 3 years for the price to drop. The PSP may be an exception to
that rule though. My point being that I will continue to play and buy games
for my PS2.

I agree if there's a lack of compelling titles (PS2), but when there's
a killer ap I jump as soon as possible (Halo, Eternal Darkness, Wipeout
Pure).

Still I'm glad I have a PS2 for when God of War comes out. Looks like
the first truly next gen PS2 game.

I read all the PSO messages and was reasonably satisfied with the
story.

Here's the EGM interview with Yuji Naka which might clear up some
questions. I don't see the "unconfirmed" information that magicbox was
talking about though.. unless it's a different article.

talking about Diablo, which isn't a MMORPG
