It's out in Japan (came out last thursday). It's free with the xbox live system (it isn't sold seperately here). Though only 8,000 of the xbox live systems have been sold here. No one cares.

The game comes packed with the X-box Live kit in Japan, which retails for about the same as buying a game. That gives you one year of Live service. There is a monthly fee for the purchase of a hunters license to play the game online however, which is the same as the Gamecube fee is in Japan if I'm not mistaken.

For the US Offical X-box Magazine stated that PSO will be sold seperately (on it's own) however will not incure any monthly fee to play the game online.

I hope you are correct. This will be the deciding factor in my purchase of this game. I don't feel I should have to pay an extra $9 month for a hunters license if I've already payed for Xbox live! God I'm a cheapskate!

According to EB the game comes out in February. But, since games tend to come out later rather than sooner, it'll probably be released in March.

It's good to hear that there wont be a monthly fee, I'll definitely be getting it. I hope to see some of you guys online.

I will be under this name, Red Blood Poet. I will be online the day it comes out. On my reserve thing I think it said on it the date: either 2/??/03 or 3/2/03 but I forgot. I am a bit bad at remembering dates.

If I have a Compaq 2000 and cable. What wire will I need to go online and were could I find it?

Unless you want to have both your computer and Xbox connected at the same time, you wont need to buy anything extra, just plug the cord right into the XBox.

PSO for the Xbox WILL cost an extra $8.95 a month in order to play the game on and offline. I'm not getting xbox live and broadband till around June, so I was going to buy the game and level up offline, until then. Oh well, I guess I'll get the game in June. It is the same in Japan, where you need Xbox Live in order to play the game offline as well. PSO is only available with Xbox Live in Japan, so it is no big deal. Microsoft is distributing the game and they didn't change the code because they said they would of had to push back the release date. Hopefully Microsoft will change the box art with some super crappy artwork like Shenmue II, like Sega of America usually does, then it will feel like a real Sega game. Way to go Microsoft! :cool guy:

On a positive, the game will only cost $39.95 and the first two months for the Hunter's License will be free and you don't need a Hunter's License to play the game offline, just an Xbox Live account.
