Sega shot themselves in the foot by bringing it to the psp but i think they only done that cause japaneese spend more time on handhelds than sitting at home playing consoles

Well pso2 still in alpha stages ( i think ) and japan has not a solid release date yet .. So im still hopeful

They should make it free to play, plenty of obscure japanese MMO's have been doing good business on a FTP model in the West like Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine.

i have no doubt it be free to play , many mmo are FTP These days or went to FTP and just used micro transactions , only mmo i can think off are PTP are star wars old republic and WOW

guild wars gone ftp, DCUO Went ftp , the upcoming marvel mmo is FTP

It be bad business for it to be PTP Structure cause its being 12 years since PSO proper game so best way to bring players in is to be a FTP model and getting the ball rolling

If I didn't already have one, I'd be sold. Grinding my MAGs on the toilet, truly we are living in a golden age.

At least they're some plans in place for it, can't understand how so many Japanese games still stick to the old wait until it's out in Japan before starting on localization. Most developers can't afford to limit a game to one console let along one region, there would be some examples of games not warranting a western release but planning for something is always cheaper than trying to do it after the fact.

imagine if it came out on XBLA and was free to play, that would be lovely! still, a vita suddenly sounds much more appealing to me.

Might jump into this, even though I would be wandering through menus with no idea what I am clicking. PSO was a blast back in the days o' the DC.
