Phantasy Star Online 2 Vita cross-play gets detailed

I’m there with many of you getting excited about Phantasy Star Online 2 on the Vita. I mean, it’s an awesome idea, take the PC game on the go without a big laptop? Awesome idea. Almost as awesome as a console version *nudge nudge SEGA*.  So how is cross-play going to work between the PC and Vita?

  • SEGA will set up ships, some of the ships will be PC only (ships = servers) and on the Vita they will have their own ships only for Vita owners. But don’t worry, there will be several ships that will allow users to play with PC and Vita users. Nice to see this option.
  • Just like the PC version, the Vita game will be free-to-play. Not only that, it will also be a free download. Only downside is that you WILL HAVE TO BE ONLINE TO PLAY. No offline mode at all.
  • Another downside is that you will only be able to have one account per memory card. So if you want to share a Vita with someone, you will have to save up money for a new memory card.

They have also suggested that the Playstation Vita version will be getting a beta. Sounds exciting. Now release the game in the West, come on!

    You got a bit of info wrong, there’s not going to be exclusive Ships (servers) for the Vita version.

    Both PC and Vita players can play in all Ships, it’s the blocks inside the ships that will have a bit of separations. Basically, some blocks will be for both PC and Vita players, while the rest of the blocks will be exclusive for PC players.

    Please hit NA on vita. I’d have paid $40 for it but free! I’m praying it hits NA PS Vita, cause this will definitely be a big money maker for PS Vita and will probably help sales since when you buy a vita you get phantasy star online 2 free as default, though I wish you could do offline grinding and treasure hunting, but oh well. Hopefully 3g can allow that (if so im going to have to buy a new vita with 3g lol)
