First it is, then it isn’t, then it is…and apparently, as the game launches, it isn’t. If you bought a broadband adapter and plan to use it with PSO, good luck. This may be the error message you get:
Connection failed. Phantasy Star Online does not support Broadband.
There are going to be some very angry gamers over this…unless they have an import save file. With it, gamers can use that file as their domestic online save file, and go online via broadband. So, if you have a Japanese PSO lying around, more power to you. If not, your broadband adapter ‘investment’ may very well be wasted.
