Phantasy Star Online 2 Won’t Be Compatible with PS Vita TV

on October 2, 2013 4:19 AM

If you hoped to play Phantasy Star Online 2 on the upcoming PS Vita TV (which is very likely to come west much before the game does, mind you), you’re in for a cold shower.

Sega just made a brief announcement stating that the game won’t be compatible with PS Vita TV. There’s also no word on future support, just the usual apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for understanding.

Considering that the game is also on PC, I guess those that want to play on a monitor are pretty much set, but doesn’t that mean that implementing an interface that doesn’t make use of the touch features shouldn’t be too hard?

This sure comes as unexpected news, considering that Sony and Sega jointly advertised the game for quite a while during the summer.
