Sega shared final details today on Phantasy Star Online 2's pricing scheme, and also revealed that the game, or a version of it at least, will be coming to a third platform.
The big change from past PSO games as far as pricing goes is that PSO2 will be free-to download and play. It will use an item transaction system, meaning you'll need to pay for some items.
PC and Vita owners won't have the game all to themselves. Sega announced a smartphone version, which will be released on iOS and Android.
The smartphone version will be different from the PC and Vita version. The PC and Vita versions offer cross platform play. The smartphone version will just share data with the two versions
The smartphone version, and the relationship with the PC and Vita version.
Sega also says that the smartphone version will offer simpler character creation, and a simpler control experience, complete with social game elements. Sega says to expect a more "personal" and "simple" experience compared to the other two versions.
The PC version of PSO2 will be arriving first (as previously promised), with service planned to begin in early summer. The smartphone version will come next, in Winter 2012. The Vita version is due in Spring 2013.
The Phantasy Star Online 2 schedule.
Sega will hold the game's promised closed beta test in late April. This test will reach a scale of 100,000, and will allow for 24 hour play (when there's no maintenance, of course). Players will also get to sample story elements from the game.

Definitely something to look forward to whenever they get around to going international or NA, but the freelancers doing the english patches have done an excellent job so far making it understandable at least lol

Please tell me there will be an English language open beta soon. I would DEFINITELY play the crap out of that especially since I was a fan of PSO and PSU.
This game is in open beta now and I have been playing for the last week it's worth the time and effort for such a beautiful game. If you don't mind playing in Japanese I urge you to give it a try True fans would of be on this already
