Saw it this morning. Was unimpressed. Even if I had been impressed, all I have to do is point to PSU PC as an indicator of what to expect with regard to game support. Sega will abandon non-Japanese support for this game just like every other iteration of Phantasy Star.
Look to Guild Wars 2 or Star Wars: The Old Republic for the next big thing.
I wish they'd give more power to SEGA US to do something when things go wrong, or the making of events. If they did that maybe we'd not get it so bad.
I have several friends who are going straight to the Japanese servers this time...
Edit: No posts since July huh.. (Sorry about bumping.. that counts as a necro doesn't it, I tend to struggle when even old stuff doesn't leave the first page.. but personally feel it's better than making a new topic on the same game, but I'll be more careful about it in the future), did anyone see the new news? About the Alpha tests and such?
I'm not surprised it has been delayed till next year really. I kind of expected it to be.
