Phantasy Star Universe texter bundled with swag

Typing long messages with an on screen virtual keyboard is a hassle if you’re playing a console MMO. While Blue Orb’s texter is no substitution for a USB keyboard they came up with a creative input system where you use both analog sticks to input letters. For Phantasy Start Universe they have Playstation 2 and Xbox 360 texter bundle packages with a bunch of PSU swag like a t-shirt, metal box and a poster. The Xbox 360 PSU texter is pretty useless since the texter does not work with wireless controllers and Microsoft is releasing a first party text input device in the near future. It’s debatable if the Playstation 2 device is useful either. You could get a USB keyboard for a much cheaper price, but that wouldn’t come with PSU stickers.

    Compared to PSO, this game is a failure.

    It’s amazing how badly Sega is trying to market Phantasy Star Universe. I doubt many people are still playing this MMORPG today compared to when it was originally released, the monthly fees basically killed this game for me.

    Unless they expect a texter bundle package will help spur up interest for the game, which I severely doubt would be enough to convince anyone to give PSU a second chance.
