One of the great games to come out on the Sega Dreamcast was Phantasy Star Online (PSO) it used the revolutionary feature of the built in online capabilities of the console and was one of the first online games to really go global.
The game itself was different, it made you work together to bring down bigger more powerful enemies, introduced trading and barter between real people and evolved its own currency in the form of photon drops. Players loved it even going as far as setting up their own servers when the originals closed down, have a look at their website if you are still keen to get the original PSO back online. Aren’t we good to you here at Arcade?
Well that was back in 2001, and now in its 10th year there is a sequel coming. Sega bring us Phantasy Star Online 2. Looking at the vid, there will be a few changes to the game play, but the overall look of the game will be familiar. We Are Arcade will bring you more details as they are released, we will be keeping a very close eye on this one.
If your Japanese is any good, they are recruiting Alpha testers until May 20th, Click HERE best of luck!
