    Beta sign ups are already available, if you were in Alpha 2 and reached level 10 you're automatically in the beta.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    Sega made a good move. <3

    Also are there details on signing up for the beta? Especially for someone who isn't Japanese? I really want to get my hands on this game now.

    EDIT: I think I got it. They'll send e-mails confirming access near the end of April.

    For anybody who wishes to sign up for the beta, check out this link:

    http://bumped.org/psublog/phantasy-star-online-2-closed-beta-signup/

    I'd also recommend the site for any PSO2 news, great site that update minutes after an announcement.

    They released a character creator demo and benchmark program for PSO2 that you can grab here. No account required.

    You can create a character and import that data to be used in the next closed beta if you get in. :)

    Just saying that I currently run a PSO2 forum, I'm sorry if it's advertising but we have a CHARACTER CREATOR THREAD. Seriously though, if you're interested in the game I'd recommend joining as it's going to have a lot more activity along with the IRC I have had since a2 in Beta.

    I don't believe it's been mentioned, but this thread has a benchmark tool to determine how well you can run it. From what I've read if you had a decent computer in 2008, you can run this just fine.

    Reference From Sega
    ★ Less than 2000: Please adjust your game settings because the processing load is quite heavy.
    ★★ 2000 through 5000: The game runs fine at the setting, if you have room, you can adjust some settings.
    ★★★ 5001+: The game works wonderfully at this setting.

    Edit- Just downloaded the benchmark tool from the site, and inside the zip was the character creator setup so they must just be one and the same.

    Oh, I'm ready for this.

    I just need a VGA cooler, my temp is 75c when running this.

    Got a score of 1538 with the graphics setting at 5, high res textures, and standard shading. I changed the shading to simple and it jumped up to 20101. I guess this is a sign that my graphics card is starting to become outdated? >.>

    Ah well, as long as it runs I'm all good.

    Doesn't even start up for me. I get a dialog box to which I can just press OK on.

    Have you tried lowering down your settings to 1 and changing the shader settings?

    The character creator seems very robust. I can making appealing looking people very quickly!

    The only nagging problem I have is that the color of your suit is pre-set to several colors for humans/numans. Just a little annoying, seeing as casts has the color wheel for the three different colors of their parts.

    Seems to run at around 30FPS on the default settings for me. I am OK with this... especially considering I can't understand most of the settings, and can't configure them ingame apparently (the more complex options ingame as detailed in Krigo's link up there happen to be disabled).

    If anyone is interested in having the character creator translated, Agrajag (great guy btw) of PSUMods has translated the Character Creator into English.

    Just check out this topic:

    I got mine three days ago. Didn't feel like updating the topic just yet but looks like if was already bumped.

    Also, here are the times you can access PSO2:
