    I was just reading MS's Japanese XBox Live announcement and they get Phantasy Star Online as their pack in title, we get Re-Volt.....Them PSO, us Re-Volt.....just doesn't seem fair does it.

    Hmmm...that does seem a little unfair. How well did PSO do originally over in Japan compared to in N. America? Certainly online gaming is more popular in N. America.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the use of the word "Japs" in the title, but yeah, that sucks...

    Yeah, using the term "Japs" might not be such a hot idea. I'm sure you probably didn't mean anything by it, but that's a WWII era term - and we're not at war anymore.

    I altered the thread title, I know no harm was meant by the use of 'Japs' as for many years it haqs seen common use in the videogame world, but it's still best to post in full, especially on an international forum like the HTF.

    Yes, that's me.

    But I am quite unlike "the" Chris Rock.

    I'm "Bigger and Whiter" than he is.

    (Reference of course to Chris Rock's "Bigger and Blacker" album. No offense intended whatsoever.)

    ...meanwhile, back at the topic... [​IMG]
    This really sucks. Re-volt, is a pooooor 2nd place to PSO, even if it is a barely warmed-over rehash of a 1 1/2 year old Dreamcast game. I'd like PSO for free, but I'm not going to pay $50 for a lackluster port. And _especially_ if they don't alter the item distribution in the game.
    But free? Yeah, I'd be all over that. Sega's like an abusive lover. They treat us like crap and we keep coming back for more. Reminds me of this old Penny Arcade:

    Blame Microsoft, since they're choosing the packins

    Jeff-

    You think Sega has no say? Trust me, Sega has NO love for Japan as we were the BIGGEST market by far for the DC.

    I think this might be the wrong forum to post about a problem like that, James DS. Maybe a little lubrication would help you out?
