Who wants to pay for this? It's aweful. I loved the dreamcast version, but that was years ago and the game has only gotten worse since.

RBlaze6197d ago

yea its a kick in the ass to have to pay. But a free beta demo is a free beta demo. Ive downloaded it, now ive just gotta go to a lecture, then il try it when i get back. if it adds another damn 'achievement slot' to my list, even tho its a demo, il be so annoyed!!!

Ya know I was realy looking forward to this but I just cant see paying 10 bucks a month for it.... They don't even maintain there servers very well, In PSO on the Xbox There was an Xmas tree in the lobby for over a year.... and don't get me started on the annoying xmas music in the background!

This is why I have a xbox 360 free beta demos moments like this make me gald I made this purchase...yes im bragging!

I am looking to get into some MMO... and I don't want to play guild wars; I bought that and I don't really like the pvp. FFXI was too complex, and WOW it's too advance for me(everyone high level). I will take a look at this game; it is always great to start a game when everyone is low level.

Can't There Be a Good Xbox MMO?

VGU.TV's Andrew Nino explores the sad legacy of MMO attempts on the Xbox and Xbox 360, and why massively multiplayer gameplay has had such a hard time getting by on Microsoft consoles.

MMOs and consoles aren't good friends.

kratos1233864d ago

DCUO is pretty good in my opinion and you can see that the devolpers are quit happy with what they have build on the ps3.

ab5olut10n3864d ago

i think it's just difficult to do mmo's on consoles in general

wwm0nkey3864d ago

PSO2, TERA, Defiance(is coming to 360) and maybe Elder Scrolls Online will work since it only has 5 action buttons.

Seriously though PSO2 and TERA need to come to PS3/360 or next gen systems at least.

InMyOpinion3864d ago

I have been wondering that all this gen.

Still amazed why they didn't create an MMO game where you play as your avatar. Give the accessories you can buy attributes etc.

Dammit I was looking forward to True Fantasy Online back with the old box. Shed a tear when it got cancelled. It was to be my jump into the MMO arena. Sigh : (

The article talks about most of the games pretty quickly and then all of a sudden STAR WARS. STAR WARS EVERYWHERE.

Why is there no mention of Diablo 3?

kirbyu3904d ago

The only thing I don't like about SMB2 is the controls for picking up stuff is confusing.

kirbyu3904d ago

Also, Doki Doki Panic is a Nintendo game. So SMB2 isn't a copy, it's a localization.

Goodbye to a game that gave me quite a few memories. I met some people on PSU that I still play with today. Always sad to see a game go..... Thank you Phantasy Star Universe.
