  • The silver colour doesn’t make it look cutting edge, it makes it look like cheap plastic :-/

      Why do I get the feeling that there are a lot of people bickering over video games?

      • Huh, for some reason I just got the notification.

        I agree, no reason to argue over these things, which is why I left it as a simple comment, and had anyone started a big deal over it I’d have bowed out. Just sharing my impression.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    New VITA color ? I like it !

  • S- Class Wizard KaRamo

    did i just read that this game is free as a download or are my eyes tired from staying up so late

    • That’s been the plan for a long while now. The physical release just has extra stuff to make the price tag worthwhile.

    • saxophone15

      It’s a free to play MMO…you read correctly.

  • Shadowman

    That will be an instant buy for me.

  • English please.

  • d19xx

    Even if it’s free on PSN I’ll still get the packaged version and make a shrine for it or something…

  • Still waiting for that English release……….

  • Sergio Briceño

    This bundle needs to come out of Japan.

  • Дмитрий Гермес

    In Europe, will sell Phantasy Star Online 2?

    • natchu96

      Can’t sell free stuff, man. Only make and advertise.

  • Sounds great. I’ll give it a while after the Japan release and the english release of the pc version to see if the vita version is coming too. If it’s not then I might get another memory card for a japanese account and download it. ^_^

  • Oltheros

    Hey Sega, people outside of Japan like RPGs too.

    • Man I need this game! God Eater! Phantasy Star! STOP TOYING WITH OUR EMOTIONS!!!

      • Vash bane

        -finishes sentence-

  • Andres Pena

    omg why does sega not bring this over, I mean they have some good rpg’s like 7th dragon that never come over, i hope this isnt the case with this.

  • Tom

    I want a total white Vita! Just like my PSP, I like my Sony handhelds white :)

  • Brandonmkii

    playing the PC version RIGHT NAO. Got my Vita version on pre-order too.

  • MediaMindControl

    Free to play is a very good format here but they may take awhile to port it since the Vita is not a major console and has a smaller user base than the ginormous facebook. I hope they at least bring it here for PC. I played the beta and I love PSO games! graphics are phenomenal btw maybe since the last PC PSO was during the Dreamcast era.

    • i bought vita today with 8 gig mem card, and i just learned its a free download on march 26, today it 21st i hope i made a good investment

  • Benjamin(514)

    First game I’ve ever played from the series was Phantasy Star Online (the first one) on DREAMCAST back when online gaming on consoles just started out and WAS DA BOMB! So many GREAT memories (+ dreamcast keyboard to chat). Now you MUST bring THIS to north America before summer 2013!! I have a PS VITA & PS3 and WILL BUY IT ON BOTH CONSOLES! (mostly first on PS VITA b/c = portable)
