TGS: Phantasy Star Online 2 coming to PC in 2011

Revealed during their Tokyo Game Show keynote, Phantasy Star Online 2 will be released exclusively for the PC sometime next year. Gone are the days of the pretender Universe reality, friends, and back is the familiar setting of the Dreamcast classic we all know and love.

where did they say its exclusive for PC?

If it is then this is sure to fail


Phantasy Star Online is not an MMO and im sure PSO and PSU worked allot better on console judging from PS2 and PC server closure

I doubt it's PC exclusive that would be a pretty dumb move

MMORPG's work best on PC's. Plus, they might run into trouble with the whole Xbox live thing like SE has been running into with FFXIV.

They didn't state it is PC exclusive, but the PC is the only listed platform for it, which is why it's assumed to be PC only.

PSU servers are still up on the 360 so I doubt that will be a problem.

But this isn't the 90s - early 2000s anymore.

This game would work just as well as the PC version. USB ports on consoles now means keyboard and mouse support. That's all you really need for a PSO game.

PSO has never been graphically demanding so hardware isn't an issue. It was all about the Gameplay. Not only that, but the console versions had offline multiplayer, something the PC lacked.

Also, Sega would be missing out on a lot of money by skipping the console versions of this game. There are many PSO fans on consoles who have been dying for a real sequel, not that PSU crap.

I just hope online is free =(

most likely it will be released for PC first then after they test the waters they will release the console versions

This isn't '98, they don't really do that sort of thing anymore...

What's wrong with pc? If it's a good game then it should succeed and if not then it'll fail.

"Phantasy Star Online is not an MMO and im sure PSO and PSU worked allot better on console judging from PS2 and PC server closure "

So the PS2 is not a console? Also the Japanese servers for them are still up.

hopefully online is free.........

It's more than likely coming to pc because the original pso had a huge revival on the pc via homebrew after the dc version died. Either way pso2!!!!! I'm sold.
