Phantasy Star Online 2 is a little different on the Vita


The Vita version of Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming to Vita in February next year and Sega has revealed what some of the differences will be between it and it’s PC big brother. Most of these changes were made in an effort to get the game running comfortably on the less-powerful hardware. The differences include:

  • Less enemies on-screen at once
  • Smaller map sizes
  • Fewer Emergency Trials than the PC version

Since the different versions are compatible online even with their differences, PC players playing with Vita players will play on a special Vita server where the less enemies and smaller maps are used.

Overall, none of these changes concern me. Sure, the PC version sounds like it will be a little more substantial but the fact that most of the main game is intact and on a portable still excites me.

  1. Amazing, I thought for sure they wouldnt be compatible to play together!

    We’ll have to put together a rag tag crew of misfit addicts Alex!

    What’s your prefered class? I almost always go magic, but I might set up a second character as a hunter.

  2. The question I have is: Can your account bridge both platforms? Because that would be fun.

    • From what I understand it sounds like it will. You’ll be able to use your same character and account on both the Vita and the PC.

      • I’m going to need to tattoo the back of my hand with “DON’T BUY A VITA” then.

        Binding of Issac co-op AND Phantasy Star Online while pooping is going to be tough to resist.

  3. Do you guys think that we will really be getting the Vita version released in the west?
