News PC PS Vita MMO Android iPad iPhone RPG Sega

Sega of Japan has revealed that there are 730,000 registered players since Phantasy Star Online 2 went live. The game launched for the PC in Japan three weeks ago on July 4. Before that, the game went through a beta phrase, which ended on July 2, two days before the launch of full service. The MMO will also make an appearance on the Playstation Vita in 2013. Before that, it will launch on both iOS and Android platforms.

Sega has also revealed the figure where there were the most players at the one time since the launch of service. There were 91, 513 users at the one time on July 7 at 11:00 pm local time. The MMO is free-to-play and only available as a digital copy. A retail copy of the game will be released in September 2012, however. Sega is also looking into starting services for international markets, suggesting that the MMO will be released in English and other languages.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
