Typically open betas dont end, they just transition directly into the full launch.
Converse with fellow players
Dreamcast, then original Xbox, and then PC for Phantasy Star Online, Xbox 360 for Phantasy Star Universe, and then PC Japanese release at launch for PSO 2, where I have been playing for 8 years but am going to start all over again for the NA release.
I wish a pre-load was available.
Pre-load is available in 1 day and 12 minutes
Thank you. I know closed beta gets to update, but I didn't see the announcement of a pre-load for those that don't have the client downloaded yet.
I think there is one easy solution to all this, just don't play until it comes to PC
It's this for sure, but some people insist on also whining the entire time. All of these people are going to end up playing on Xbox One in the mean time anyways lol.
@oscargg said in Microsoft's cash-grabbing is scummy, and I won't support it.:
at this point we need to be glad we are getting PSO in some way , even 8 year later. you will be fine waiting 2-3 weeks more.
What I don't understand is that if it weren't for Microsoft, the game wouldn't be coming West at all. So you should be thanking them, not insulting them. Seriously how old are you?
PC will come eventually. It's not the end of the world if you can't play it first. Please stop writing essays in the forums about how angry you are.
I reject this notion. I will never feel happy about a corporation selling me a product, the company wants me as a customer, everything else is fanboyism mental gymnastics.
Look at the announcement history on this official website:
- CBT: Extended 2020-02-09 - Xbox only
- CBT: How to Obtain Special Rewards 2020-02-07 - Xbox only
- CBT: Live Concert Schedule 2020-02-07 - Xbox only
- CBT: All You Need to Know 2020-02-07 - Xbox only

- PSO2: Sonic Collaboration Edition 2020-03-11- preorder cash grab
- PSO2: Ragol Edition 2020-03-13 - preorder cash grab
PC status - second class citizens, I have to go dig through twitter to find out if PC is still happening "soon" or delayed or what happened.
I understand Microsoft is bankrolling the localization and is pushing to clear old Xbox inventory before new console holiday sales, I however find the insinuations that I have to quietly like said status and not raise my displeasure is ridiculous.
My dude, the announcement trailer said PC release was happening. If you miss obvious facts that everyone else knows, then that is on you. The game is free, I don't know where you're getting cash grab from. I have zero intention of spending any money on this, much like how I spent absolutely nothing on the Japanese version for the 8 years i've been playing it.
Closed beta being limited to xbox is one thing, but if open beta is limited to xbox, too—nah. Unacceptable. I can play anime dress-up in VR. Microsoft, the last good game you made was Halo 2. Stop it. Get some help.
Sega didn't care at all about bringing this game in the West. They cared so little that they didn't even care to tell us that they originally canceled their plans to bring it here. They just left us in the dark for 8 years. If it wasn't for Microsoft seeing that there is a NA playerbase that wants this game, then we would still be in this situation with having to play through the poorly translated in english Japanese version. There is nothing scummy about what Microsoft is doing, this is a really terrible hill to want to die on.
