Phantasy Star Online 2 Open Beta

Following the release of Segas action role playing games Phantasy Star Universe for Xbox 360 in late 2006, Sega opened its servers last week in a beta test for 41,500 players, who connected online and could play up until level 30. The games producer, Satoshi Sakai explained that this was a new record for one of Sega’s longest running action RPG games. The full game will be released later this year for PC, with cut down versions available for iOS and Android later this year and a PSP Vita release expected early 2013. There is no news on a console based version; suprising as the previous installment was available on both Playstation 2 and Xbox360. It will be intriguing to see cross platform support for mobile devices and how the multiple platforms integrate. The game will be free to play when released which is good news considering the declining fan base for subscription MMORPG games. There is currently no word on a release outside of Japan at this point.

About / Bio
I'm a lifelong gamer and share my passion with the world in the form of streaming my games on twitch.tv - www.twitch.tv/terrorhertz and making YouTube videos about all the games I enjoy. I'm also a budding games journalist here :)

My gaming journey began in the Christmas 1992 when aged 6, I got my Sega Mega Drive with Sonic One and World Cup Italia 90. Since then I have played and own pretty much every console since then, just check my collection video on my YouTube channel.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there. I'm a games journalist and write weekly articles and monthly reviews and previews whilst also uploading 3+ videos weekly to my YouTube channel where you can find loads of awesome HD gaming videos - www.youtube.com/terrorhertzhd

I've worked as a hardware/software technician for Apple the past 4 years and really enjoy working with computers. I have built/modded/overclocked PC's since around 2007 and it's a massive interest of mine. My other hobbies include video editing, carp fishing, golf and playing guitar.
