Phantasy Star Online 2 gameplay demo from PAX 2012 brings your phantasies to life

If you're interested in taking Phantasy Star on the go, then you're likely already following Phantasy Star Online 2 fairly closely. The game is due out next year, and will be bringing the pseudo-MMO gameplay to iOS, Android, and eventually the Vita (along with the PC). Unsure what we're talking about? Or are you an old school PSO fan from the Dreamcast games who's dying to see what this sequel is all about? Check out our demo from PAX 2012 to get a closer look.

    Eh, all the hardcore fans are already playing the Japanese version. Knowing Sega of America, who only care about Sonic and consider Alien one of their flagship franchises, don't expect the US version of PSO2 to get much support.

    Can not wait for a real sequel to PSO I'll be jumping into this the second it goes closed beta (closed beta code permitting) if not Open beta. My only fear is that it will have some horrible CS mechanic that will eventually drive me away from the game. I'm not apposed to plunking down money but not when it feels like I'm being bullied into it.

    The Cash Shop on the japanese version is based on raffle tickets. The only real thing people favors themselves from it is by selling the outfits and accessories they obtain from these tickets for in-game currency. The other thing is the premium service, which grants you the ability to trade, set a shop and have a room. Free players can still purchase from the shops of premium players, just as they can visit their rooms and whatsoever, but they can't directly trade with a premium player either.

    One thing I really enjoy about PSO (and PSO2) is the real time combat. I mean 90% of MMOs have real time combat as well, but it's usually spell based with cool downs and things of that nature. I'm talking full real time. Which is awesome.

    Been playing the jap version of this and dang, I'm having a hard time looking at other mmos at their faces... The customization is outstanding and the combat is awesome, everything has this flow and runs so smooth that it makes the game feel alive... Earlier stages are a bit too easy imo, but I guess it is meant to allow the more casual audience step in, considering this series has always considered the importance of the social environment... Really looking forward an engrish release!
