• PSP2 Demo Hits US Playstation Store Featuring Story Chapter One & Multiplayer

    You've watched the trailer, seen the screenshots, and maybe even played the import. Now, as we get even closer to the US release of Phantasy Star Portable 2, you can get your first taste of the localized version of the game. The PSP2 demo is here!

    Released on the US PSN store earlier this evening and weighing in at 342MB, the PSP2 demo features the first chapter of the game's story mode and also includes support for both ad-hoc and online multiplayer (available to everyone, unlike the Japanese PSP2 demo). In addition, players can import their original Phantasy Star Portable character, granting them two bonus items; a slot unit with a visual bonus and Exam Saber.

    As part of the announcement about the demo, it was also revealed that each copy of PSP2 will include a unique, one-time code that will be linked to players' PSN accounts. Registering this code will allow players unlimited lifetime access to the game's online mode, no subscriptions or fees required.

    Feel free to drop by our PSP2 Forum, where a demo discussion is already underway! You can also visit our Official Phantasy Star Portable 2 Pre-Order Thread / FAQ for the latest release date information and pre-order buzz.

      Yeah, the demo's actually very enjoyable now that I can finally read what's going on/what I'm picking up. PSP2 definitely is living up to my expectations. I plan to pre-order it soon.

      just thought id let you all know that there are 4 visual slot units in all for importing a char. a different one depending on which class you chose your import char to be. they are as follows with a description.
      hunter - Cosmic Particle C - space like aura,
      ranger - Brightness Circle C - glowing ring around char,
      force - Flower Art C - flower aura,
      Vanguard - Whitill Wing - glowing energy wings,
      Also i love this game. =)

      For that PSN code when you get the game. Do you have to have PSN or PS3 for that code to work? I don't have PS3....

      The game connects to the internet via your wireless connection. You won't need a PS3 to play this game online with friends, but you will need a PSN account, which is free btw.

      So... You're saying that all people have an Xbox or PS3? Cause what if they don't have either of those? A PSP is cheeper for guys who get the system because of a game they want (such as I am with PSP2), while I wouldn't even consider getting an Xbox or PS3, between the cost and the fact that I really don't want either.
