Yeah, I'm going to keep buying cosmetics, because logically, if the original PSO2 is getting a graphical overhaul to bring it into line with Genesis, then all outfits on the original, by extension are apart of that graphical overhaul. It's common sense people. Stop letting people scare you out of the game.
Uhm, a new graphic engine does not magically convert and upgrade all assets into the new standard by some technomagic.
"Graphical overhauls" do not work the way you seem to think they do.
You're right, assets don't magically convert, but the difference here is that because Normal PSO2 is still sticking around, while being upgraded to the same engine as PSO2:NG, it means that SEGA has two options for cosmetics:
- Existing assets are converted to work in the new engine: In which case if they're already porting the items to work in the new engine for PSO2, it's no extra work to let those same items be used in PSO2:NG (which uses the same engine)
- Existing assets aren't converted to work in the new engine, basically deleting all AC/SG outfits people spent money on because they're not compatible with the game anymore
I can't imagine option 2 is what SEGA wants to do because it would likely immediately alienate the whales and dissuade them from playing again if it just meant SEGA would delete their stuff because of a graphics overhaul, so I think it's likely that they'll be upgraded with option 1, so they'll still be usable in PSO2:NG.
Listen, as someone with untold and uncountable amounts of expensive fashion and 8 years worth of gear and accessories on PSO2JP, which is probably the version i will be playing in NG, i am one of the most interested players in having their gear carry over, because it would place me in a very comfortable position in PSO2NG.
However, as i mentioned in the previous post, there has to be a reason why Sega did purposefully evade from commenting whether the costumes would be transfered to PSO2NG or not, so celebrating so soon may end up backfiring.
Maybe they just did not say it because they are not done yet and want to avoid being accused of telling lies, in case some costumes cannot be adapted for reason X, or maybe they have other plans, it´s not for me to know.
But what i do know is that it does not take a genius to realize that it´s not just a coincidence that the one thing that everyone is the most worried about is the one thing they did not confirm.
