  • Been waiting so long for this to make it over. Was not expecting this at all.
  • Finnnnnaaallllyyyyyy! My last PSO was on the Dreamcast....Episode I & II! Sooooo many hours poured in to that title. I remember the IGN Board dedicated to PSO. We had a GMA (Good Morning All) board where we would all meet daily.
  • I freaking love Phantasy Star Online. First played it on Dreamcast. Can't count the happy filled hours I spent on that game.
  • So did MS made a timed exclusive deal so that it comes first on XB1?
