    Talks something about the Dreamcast's PSO servers being completely free from May 20th... >_> No need for a HL!

    Not sure what this says for EU or US players. Ragol's got a low down.

    A generous move from Sega, in the midst of the current PSU rush

    See my artwork at http://voxie.co.uk I hope to draw a super sexy hunewearl once I get a closer look at them in can stop playing PSO2...

    From 20th May, Phantasy Star Online for the SEGA Dreamcast will be free to play, making it the first free PSO game to play online - It only took 6 years eh?
    DC v1 was free. >_<

    Granted it wasn't the greatest, but it was still the first, and still the first free one.

    So DC was free anyway? You're talking about the non-Sega ones right? At least, that's the only ones I've known about..? :/

    PSO (Ver. 1 & Ver. 2) for DC was never free in Japan. And Ver. 2 was pay-to-play everywhere else except in Europe.

    And he's not talking about non-Sega servers, the official servers for DC PSO are still up for Europe & Japan.

    Ah I see. Well, I wonder if the free servers will apply to EU aswell then.

    And thanks

    yea PAL PSOV2 is free, only problem is they had to face bad ISP phone line charges. JP V2 has to pay a HL. NTSC USA PSOV2 can no longer connect to the sega servers, but the homebrew servers are free to Any Dreamcast PSO version. Interesting to hear that JP PSO v2 will be free. hopefully this doesnt mean a server shutdown soon along with the HL server. If the HL server goes offline then the only version that will ever be able to go online for dreacmast again will be any V1 and PALV2 as they dont have HL checks.

    The PAL version tied your character data to your Dreamcast, so if you changed your Dreamcast, you couldn't play online with the same characters. Wonder if that will still be the same.
