• PSO BB Beta to end July 5th

    velocity_7 writes, "According to the latest SEGA PC Players magazine post (PSO Express Vol. , the Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst Open Beta is slated to end on July 5th, and Service In will begin July 8th. Other than that, some pictures were included, which could mean new environments:

    People who have registered before June 30 at 15:00 will get a Chameleon Wand as a gift (9-star rare item):

    Also, all teams registered before June 30 get 2,000 points each as a bonus for beta testing. Lastly, the new Episode for PSO BB is expected to show up sometime in 2004 according to the article.

    The bookstore sale version will go on sale on July 8, and the SEGA PC Store sale version on July 15. Both retail for 1,980 yen (w/ tax totals 2,079 yen).

    The download version (400 MB) will be available for 1,200 yen (w/ tax totals 1,260 yen) on July 8. There is no real difference between the bookstore and download versions.

    Also, the free download version that is currently available is no different from the version that will be purchased later.

    June 30, 15:00 - User ID Registration Closes
    July 5, 10:00 - Open Beta Test Ends

      The Chameleon Scythe? you can already find it on PSO, and I really doubt they'd give it any kind of good stats, well maybe hit, but seriously, I'd much prefer the Soul Banish...glad I got one!

      Wee, Chameleon Scythe! My melee FOnewm will love that. And free team points...n.n

      Er, how will payment work if you live in America? I hope the exchange rate for dollars to yen isn't like 1:0.1341345. >_>

      Also, will ST be nice and give US players an optional english patch? Somehow I doubt that. -__-

      Many people (myself included, if everything goes well) want to get Blue Burst.

      If you've played PSO Ep1/2 enough, and/or know a bit of katakana, it really isn't that hard.

      Of course, I'm missing out on the new quest info. >_>
