Couple of nitpicks here
@Leonkh99 said in PSO2 NGS Insight:
Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst and Universe co-existed for some time
In Japan yes but from what I hear that was only for Japan.
Final Fantasy XI continues to co-exist with Final Fantasy XIV
Though they did drop console support for XI. I'd also like to point out that these examples are of subscription-based games so I can sort of understand why some people might have some doubt here. I think a better comparison would be the South Korean and Chinese releases of Maplestory 2, which no one would even consider, especially after the NA release died so quickly. It's seriously interesting to me how I'm once again bringing up Maplestory in comparison to PSO2... There was also Digimon RPG/Digimon Battle Online and Digimon Masters co-existing for. The NA releases for those came out around the same time but in South Korea Digimon Masters came far later. In this case though, it was DBO that died in North America, though it's South Korean counterpart, Digimon RPG, like Maplestory 2 is apparently still around. Not sure about the Chinese versions of Digimon RPG and Digimon Masters though.
Cosmetics Won't Transfer
Currently outfits aren't in the list of items that aren't transferable... but indeed people have been picking apart the fact that its not specifically mentioned in the list of things that do transfer over (never mind the fact that the list skims over a bunch of things). While the latter does bring up a good point, I do believe the mere fact that its not outright mentioned at all on the 'not transferable' list either should make it clear what the intentions could be... plus as the fine print reads, the list could end up getting bigger. Regardless... I see people already making their decision and judgement of NGS and PSO2 NA's costumes over this 'unconfirmed' fact.
You forgot to mention that in the second trailer when they're talking about being able to bring stuff over, we see Ash in NGS with his old outfit in spite of having a new one in both trailers. Not only does this imply Ash brought over his old outfit from PSO2 classic but Ash having a new outfit after all this time also implies that the old default outfits will not be the default outfits in NGS and both of these things together implies that they won't even be obtainable in NGS.

If August brings PSO2NA to new pc platforms, do they have to wait to play PSO2NG on that platform until later after it's launch?
The only reason they didn't mention them is because they're not ready to announce them.
Of course the Microsoft store installation issues should not be an issue with a new game built specifically for it
Unless they learned nothing and it uses an out-of-app launcher... Honestly considering the game has a PS4 release which does not use a launcher, you'd think they'd be able to not only prevent that issue but quickly fix it by modifying the app in a similar manner to the PS4 release... This tells me they don't even know that the launcher not playing nice with the UWP and/or Windows Store framework is the problem. @GM-Deynger Please inform the devs.

@Seedeus I'd be skeptical of that graphics update until we actually see something of it. I'm not saying doubt they are going to do it but NGS will not have most classes in it at launch so if they were updating the graphics they would need to have all the models for those classes gear done. Also I don't remember if it was mentioned on the JP page only that the NGS models can be in the Classic mode
NGS is likely not going to have scion classes considering that they seem to have been merged into the normal classes (several PAs have also been merged it seems and Satellite Aim seems to have been turned into a more impressive looking Complex PA/Class Burst).

Fashion is the only thing making NG not be PSO3.
You mean aside from concrete continuity and not just little nods to past games that have no real connection to the current one that make people scramble to try to piece everything together only to find connections that don't even really exist? (like that one ship in the ending of one of the classic games landing on a planet that looks nothing like Ragol or Coral but these people say it landed on one of those planets and PrinceBrightstar's attempts at trying to connect PSO2 to PSClassic when there's simply not enough solid evidence. (At least not yet anyway, NGS could be what winds up tying it together but I have plenty of reason to doubt that)
Portable 2 aside (Portable 2 was more of a spinoff, like how Portable was a sidequel and Infinity was a definitive edition like Blue Burst), Phantasy Star hasn't had a direct sequel (let alone a main series direct sequel) since Phantasy Star IV.
This is a direct sequel. It's the first proper direct sequel Phantasy Star has had in a long time and calling it PSO3 when PSO2 has no clear connections to PSO would imply a lack of continuity (and even if it did have connections to PSO, all the signs are pointing to it taking place before PSClassic and PSClassic taking place before PSO which would make PSO a once removed prequel).
