Users who participate in the beta will receive special items for their services. Sega say that the purpose of the beta is to test server performance and compatibility between the PC and PlayStation Vita versions of the game.


Vita owners can register for the Phantasy Star Online 2 beta from the Japanese PlayStation Store. You’ll also need to register a Sega ID to play the beta.

    I was born on the wrong side of the world. ='(

    • ronin4life

      I feel that way sometimes too.

      And I bet if I WAS born in Japan, Japanese-me would still say the same thing…
      That’s some deep twilight zone stuff there…O.o

    • Go2hell66

      to be fair, if you were japan, i bet you’d wish you were american

      • True. The Japanese envy the shit out of the US, for reasons I don’t quite understand.

  • Pythia Brixham

    If I could actually READ Japanese, I would probably have already played the PC version of the game. But not being able to read just demotivates me. Also, the screen looks a little cramped. I know it is a Vita game, so it will have touch screen and all, but I think the HP/PP bars and map should be smaller.

    • Elvick

      Hopefully there are options to customize the HUD and things.

  • I don’t care if the game is in Hebrew, I’m signing up for this! I feel like in a couple more days, the 50,000 registration limit will be met.

  • Edzo

    do you just have to click on that new pso2 thing? i dont know what it says but i think i signed up.

    • I think that’s it. Just downloading the icon from the Japanese PS Store is the condition.

      • Edzo

        alright thats what it looked like to me but its tough finding information about it. thanks

  • Cephrien

    Noooo.. it’s happening.. ;-;

    It’s happening without me–

    Without poor ol’ American me.. Q__Q

  • Luna Kazemaru

    already signed up tho i will most likely stick with the PC version

  • Don’t feel bad English origin speaking people. 1 more month, just 1 more month!

  • Christopher Nunes

    Man, how I wish I could try out the Beta… curse you Sony for making the Vita only have one account per memory stick! That’s just wrong! :'<

    Well, I guess I'll have to wait for the US version when it comes out.

  • Kefkiroth

    Really wish I could try this, but Sony just HAD to make you reformat your memory card if you wanted to switch accounts after firmware 1.80, even though having multiple accounts is still on PS3 and is doing just fine!

  • Is the special item in-game? I have a left over memory card for my JPSN account… of course with a non-sensible address. haha

  • You know what FUQ IT
    I’m signing up! Can’t read Japanese but that doesn’t matter anymore!!
