"We noticed a lot of PSO2 Meseta players say they have been waiting eight long years with this launch. [laughs] We were really happy about that." That laugh better be a nervous (oops. Sorry) one and not a mocking one. It's at the end of a question about how hot that the beta was. It reads "a lot more people played with beta than anticipated, and told us they had been waiting eight long years with this - so people were pleased at how hot it had been" rather than"we were happy folks were awaiting eight years" Honestly I'm just glad the game was outside, it's doing well, we're actually getting content upgrades and such.
Therefore, even if they did not care we appear to maintain an ok spot right now and that's what's critical. Just continue playing and supporting with the game if you enjoy it and hopefully Sega will see that they have a decent enough player base here to not bungle things in the future. What a non response for the why the 8 year wait query. Its obvious they lost interest and only changed their mind for this release due to Microsoft practically funding it. All what has been said here makes really a lot of sense in retrospect. The clunky translation due to the team not having much control on it, and the massive delay for the EN version. For all those who do not recall, PS as a series has had some really DOGSHIT customer service in the west, all the way back to PSO. Sega as a business has an extreme trend toward the crippling fear of making money. So they never attempt things unless they see a direct gain to them in some capacity (See: POS devices in reaction to their incoming downfall, the quarterly surveys, etc.)
Gotta love how that dude's experience is gatchas along with the SEA fiasco, which makes me feel so comfortable with the game's future... SEGA simply don't like the westand we would have never gotten this game if not for a major company like MS. I do not know if it is due to bad history with cheaters from PSO /PSU, or even sore over the Dreamcast's passing that was all thier own fault. Heck they arent even Sega anymorethey are Sega Sammy.
Took this screenshot from the new trailer; shows what is shared between PSO2 and NG. It should be mentioned that characters have been shared between them as well - you will have the ability to use them in both PSO2 and NG. How are characters shared, just? If"character development won't last over", that seems just like you can have a character with the identical title in both matches, but I wouldn't predict that shared. That's what they said. I'm presuming you get to keep your character's name, appearance, weapons, units, and mag. They haven't mentioned anything about can you buy meseta on pso2 cosmetics yet which has some people worried.
