PSO, “Phantasy Star Online” is the first online RPG for a gaming console. This is the first game featuring players to team up with three other players online. It was a revolutionary game for the players to connect with other players across the world.
Sonic is the designer of the famous RPG game PSO. Sega published the game for Dreamcast in 2000.
Earlier, online RPG games such as Diablo and EverQuest released PC only. This was because the consoles of that time didn’t make much use of online gaming features.
Perceiving this as a chance to create a revolution amongst the console players, Sega chairman Isao Okawa released PSO. Since earlier internet connections were very expensive, Isao Okawa personally paid for the internet of the players. He provided a free internet bundle with the Japanese Dreamcasts. This made PSO much more popular in Japan.
“Phantasy Star Online” was an immediate success on its release. It received the Japan Game Award for “Game of the Year”.
PSO later was revised and released for windows. Later it was re-released on Dreamcasts as version 2 with expanded universe.
With the exit of Sega from the console segment, the game got its platform in Xbox.
