  1. "Adjusted the number of items required for Special Ability Capsule Exchange."

    Imminent price crash to most capsules, but may not be enough to trigger deflation.

  2. My brother is a PSO2 Vet and has me excited to play the game on PS4. These patch notes sort of increased that excitement. I'm looking forward to the PS4 private ships and the cross-play functionality.
