Also Turkey rappy's are coming so it's VERY likely they will also be in NA
Another thing is we got the new JP roadmap and know NGS isn't happening in January or February.
Question? If you know the answer.
Is New Genesis exclusive to NA or is JP getting it before NA?
Its global launch for the 3rd time.
Since NGS is global launch I'm guessing everyone will be on the same page then/maybe before. I can't imagine them making NA that much different since it is just a clone of JP with some differences and content that is not "unlocked" yet. I think the limits of unique content will be exclusive cosmetics/colabs and maybe NPC's and lobby's. I don't see them making exclusive quests unless its is a modified version of a seasonal for some US Holiday like 4th of July.
Also just FYI knowing ahead isn't exactly a NA issue as JP has livestreams that show off new content ahead of time. Along with people looking through the game files and spoiling stuff months before release.
Overall i'd say spoiling isn't exclusively a NA issue it's just there's more people that are able to spoil it by just looking up story/info online from the JP servers.
I read that some players on JP found a way to hack Player stores to get items without paying. Sega didn't want players losing items so they shut it down. I guess Sega was f-ed either way.
That seems unlikely since most high price items are not bought out on JP. i would think "Top items" would be the first to go but they are still there by checking item price on the item.
The running theory is that people were duping items with the shop.
On JP Val weapons were the easy part, I guess everything is easy now that you can buy the weapons.
As someone who plays JP, I see no issues with the censors. The height one is a plus IMO. The weapon changes don't matter but they should have done it before release. The story I don't even remember playing it on JP. I just skip all the cut scenes. Lets be honest the missing bath scene is not that important.
The changes just seem like people nitpicking issues that don't matter. My biggest issue with NA is the Star Gems currency.
People saying the JP and NA won't launch at the same time are wrong. It was stated on the Japanese site. "Since "PSO2: NGS" is planned to be deployed on a global scale, including Japan and North America, we announced it at the Microsoft online conference "Xbox Games Showcase"." http://pso2.jp/players/news/26483/?page=4
I'm just amazed the GM's don't get on the game and actively ban these people. According to the forums there is 17 GM's. I'm not sure if there are duplicates but I find it hard to believe that 1 of them just cant go on and mute/ban these people once a day.
