Phantasy Star Universe details

New details have emerged of forthcoming PC, PS2 and Xbox 360 title Phantasy Star Universe - including news that you'll be able to create and customise your very own virtual living space.

That's according to an article in Famitsu, partially translated by GameSpot, which says you'll use special "remodelling tickets" to choose yourself a room from a range of designs.

You'll be able to spruce up your space by purchasing special items, and give other players presents, too. When you're online, up to five players can come and join you in your room - and even when you're offline, it'll still be open for others to come and visit. And if you need to drum up a bit of cash, you can even hold a jumble sale in your room to get rid of any unwanted junk.

Phantasy star had to be one of ma most favourite games on the dreamcast. I also enjoyed the free beta Pc version. Never purchased the real thing though.

Does this have a montly fee.

And why isn't it coming to the PS3?

the_bebop6275d ago

I don't know if it has a monthly fee for the online version of the game. However the reason I do know why it is not comming to the the PS3 is that intinally the game was made to come out only on the PS2 and PC.

Which would make it usless to put it on the PS3 at this point.

The Xbox 360 version is probably just a port from the PC version so that sega can take advantage of there online capabilites. Also if you look at the release date for the PS2 and the PC on Gamespot it has the release date for both versions in the 4th quater of this year, with the 360 version on the 2nd quater of 2007.


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.

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.

ab5olut10n3855d ago

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

wwm0nkey3855d 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.

InMyOpinion3855d 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?

kirbyu3895d ago

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

kirbyu3895d 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.

Griffin48714010d ago

Was a good game, and it should have been treated much better than Sega did.

Never played any phantasy star game but it seems as though I'm missing out.
