Sega of Japan to charge for Xbox PSO

Sonic Team announces that there will be an additional charge for taking PSO online.

Sonic Team has announced on its official Web site that it will charge an additional monthly fee for those who want to play the Xbox version of Phantasy Star Online on Xbox Live in Japan. Details on pricing have yet to be decided. Phantasy Star Online will be bundled with the Xbox Live starter kit when it's released in Japan later this year.

It's not currently known if Sega of America plans to take a similar approach with the North American version of Phantasy Star Online for the Xbox.
