@LapisWave actually the normal launcher for the game is not 10gb, it's just a small exe that downloads the game. That would have worked just fine on steam, as do many other games on steam. it's changing it to a 10GB app that's causing new headaches as well as the same old ones from the first launch.
I got to play for 2 hours before the Microsoft store corrupted the app-based launcher when I closed it, now redownloading at a little over 50%
As someone who was there for the JP launch, I can tell you it was indescribably horrendous with the endless file corruptions and redownloads. Then, they found a way to make the process a bit better, and it's not a problem on JP anymore. Then MS went and had to make the launcher a frigging app which is hanging and causing file corruption issues because the store thinks the app is gone and tries to redownload over the current install and breaks it, and because of the way the PSO2 launcher is that means you have to reinstall the ENTIRE GAME. This on top of the fact they felt they didn't need to test PC and so put it on the backburner til they were done testing XBOX, and now everything is a mess. That is if you can even get it to start or download to begin with. This is solely on Microsoft for forcing everything to be fit to their platform instead of just translating the damn game.
