Wow, it's really coming. Phantasy Star Portable is finally coming, after months of silence. Features like connectivity with previous PSU games is a plus, although the lack of Infrastructure gameplay has us a bit bummed. (Hopefully Sega will add that to the inevitable US release!) Here's the intro movie from the game, which reminds us a lot of Persona. Man, wouldn't it be great if there were a Persona game for PSP? ...

Maybe if we push our luck with Persona 3 & 4 like we did with PSU, maybe it'll come.

Phantasy Star without Infrastructure net play is just freaking stupid. Period.
Sega, brain up.

not in Japan, the use of ad-hoc is much more common and used than infrastructure
and since PS ISN'T REALLY an open world MMO, the lack of infrastructure, at least in Japan, isn't as bad as it seems for us.

Rick Astley: You suck. And that nick sucks too.
Bout the game: Intro looks sweet. It's a new storyline right? Oh, and personally, I don't give a crap bout infrastructure, since AdHoc is my choice for multiplayer... but I know lots of fellow players would appreciate infrastructure support. So, who knows? Keep wishing.
And yeah I agree with you Andrew. Persona on PSP would be Oh-So-Sweet.

If it supports infrastructure mode for the US version I'll buy it, if not, download it

Games from 3rd parties (other than maybe EA) won't have infrastructure because the servers will just be clogged up with pirates. They can't afford to have a game not sell and have to actually pay for the freeloaders playing online, too.

Hurrrrray . All the pirates area on board :) Thank you for supporting the PSP by downloading games :)
Well infrastructure or not , Im buying it :)

Wow! That intro is awesome.
Not to mention, the fantabulous return of the PSO weapon Vivienne!

I'd rather Sega revive the franchise with a REAL Phantasy Star RPG. What was the last one? Phantasy Star IV? :/

Say word, thats what im talking about.

Ditto I chosse YOU!
Use mimic on that comment.
They should make Phantasy Star V and a new Comix Zone.Comix Zone was so awesome.

I know!! I would love another turn based Phantasy Star. I have heard nothing but bad things about these online versions. PS II and IV were excellent games and a couple of my favorite RPGs.

Gamespot has a page up (and has for a while) for a Persona psp.
Not sure it's real or not because there has been like no news at all, but we can hope.

Im sure you can use XLink kai with it just like monster hunter to get online. you people need to stop freaking out. psp always has online multiplayer because of XLink kai and wifi max. >.> thats why i like my PSP more than my DS cause i can go online and play people with games that shouldn't be multiplayer. like bleach heat the soul games. lol XD

I see what you've done SEGA! and I am loving every minute of it! :] and I agree Atlus should at least make a psp version of Persona 4 along with the new ps2 version. Although since I bought persona 1 and 2 off ebay I play them on my psp with cfw...

I'm the proud owner of a modded PSP. >_> (( SaGa Frontier, Lunar 1 and 2, Legend of Mana, and Tomba FTW. Too bad we'll never see you on PSNetwork. ))
I plan on both buying and downloading this game. Phantasy Star, without a doubt, is the greatest series. Ever.
ALYS NOOO *MEGID*

Not that it matters, but when was the last PS game w/o mmo like gameplay, jus straight up rpg

MHF series >>>>>>>>> PSO
5-18-2008 @ 6:18PM
That's just a matter of tastes. Personally, I thing MHF is the worst thing ever created and I'd choose PSO a gazillion times over it.
