    1. As of right now there isnt any official news stating ps4 will share the same blocks as pc, but it would be kinda lame if sega give ps4 the ability to do so. dont get me wrong, that idea would be pretty nice but it would spell doom for the Vita population. shared blocks are already on the flat line since the majority of pc players stay on pc blocks mostly due to a bigger population, and some vita players are turning in their handhelds for gaming rigs. Making ps4 share the same blocks as vita would possibly spark some life on the shared population, but if that doesnt happen, then sega might just pull the plug on shared blocks

  1. Any word whether they'll let us unbind PSN accounts from Sega IDs yet? I want to give this a shot, but I have a different PSN on my PS4 than my old Vita 🙁

  2. So what is the right subclass for Summoner and why. I see braver and fighter being mixed in there for some reason.

  3. Will it ever come to the XO? because i know it would be awesome on both platforms,could someone let me know if it will be coming to other platforms? thanks

    1. xo as in xbox one? absolutely not.

      the x1 is coming off of a week where 52 consoles were sold in japan (compared to just under 25k ps4's). pso2 is only available in a region where the x1 is dead as a doornail.
