At today's "PSP2 Infinity Nationwide Fan Thanks Festival 2011 supported by Caloriemate" in Japan, it was announced that the PSO2 alpha test would begin this summer! Entry into the test will be by lottery, and your first chance will be by purchasing Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity, which releases on February 24. The first prints of the game will have a yellow sticker on the outside of the case which mentions the inclusion of a special code required to enter the drawing. Note that the download version of the game will not include this code; you must purchase a physical copy. There will be two other methods of obtaining a lottery code, one for PSU players and another for PSOBB players. They say that certain conditions apply to these methods, but they'll be announced at a later date.

I know they say they've been working on PSO2 for a while already and it is going to come out this year, but the fact they are calling this an alpha makes it seem like there is still a very long ways to go.

Well, whatever. Hopefully we'll at least get some pictures or even concept art by then.

There will be three points in time that AOTI users will be able to get their hands on a lottery code to get into the PSO2 alpha test. Here are the dates and requirements for each:

1. February 24: You must be a premium course player on February 20 or you must have bought 3,000 GC (or more) between January 1 and February 20.
2. Early April: You must be a premium course player on March 31 or you must have bought 3,000 GC (or more) between February 21 and March 31.
3. Early May: You must be a premium course player on April 30 or you must have bought 3,000 GC (or more) between April 1 and April 30.

A few cautionary notes:
* Make sure your account e-mail address is correct. If a code is sent to your address and you do not receive it due to an invalid e-mail address, the code will not be resent.
* Even if you meet multiple requirements, you will only receive one code.
* The Hangame and Xbox 360 versions of AOTI are not covered by this.

http://pso2.jp/
http://pso2.jp/alpha/

The requirements for PSOBB players are a bit simpler. You simply had to have purchased a Hunters License between January 1, 2010, and November 30, 2010, and a code will be sent to the e-mail registered to your account. (However, if you played through the Hangame version, you will not be included.)

Not too hard to fulfil those requirements.
I have a feeling this "lottery" will be much like the "limited access" for Infinity's online trial code, which is STILL available to be downloaded from the PSN Store, but will ensure a rush of people will sign up for either premium courses or buying 3000GC just to grab a lottery code for the PSO2 alpha test.
I know I'll be one of those, everything is already working according to their plan!

So I do not need to do anything to join the lottery other than keep my account alive?

Yeah, as long as your premium course sub is still going, you'll get a code.

So I probably don't qualify for the BB one considering I never actually purchased a Hunter's License, I just created an account and used the free trial option which led into December being free.


Guess I'll go premium shortly before those dates and hopefully get the code. Would suck if I spent $30 on premium and got nothing.

Solid, guess I'll get to enter without having to resubscribe to PSU JP

They just posted some important additional info on the blog (here, pen-ultimate pink part).
Quote:
Also, about the participant lottery, the winners won't be picked at random. We would like to pick them with respect to further improving the efficacy of the alpha test, based on things such as the survey received upon registration (?), whether you have played a lot, whether your PC fulfills the recommended specs, as well as experience with the series, so please understand in advance.

I'm not sure what survey it's referring to, but I'm pretty sure I never filled anything out, have shit specs, and barely played, so I suppose I won't need to bother paying them more just to get to play at an earlier stage. Good luck to anyone brave enough to try though. :D

e: ow8, so psublog and psow already had this, and understood the survey part better too. OKAY NEVER MIND LOL.

Well that's one way to do it. Hopefully the survey isn't too terribly involved. D: Now for them to just release the recommended specs...

Got an email with an alpha code today, not sure when they want us to start registering it or where to even input it.

Yeah, I got two of mine just a bit ago. It says in the e-mail to enter the code at the registration section of the official site, but it hasn't been updated yet with an entry form (and questionnaire). Maybe in the coming days.

Oh, and also from the e-mail, it says that e-mails will be sent to selected registrants starting in mid-June.

System requirements are there, among other things. Really low requirements. :\

Anyway, good luck trying to get into the alpha, dudes. I'm not going to bother trying for a code.

Forward your email to espio and he'll have better chances at getting in.

I would if I qualified for any of the conditions. I wouldn't have time to play the alpha much even if I were somehow able to get in.

No code. Just a mail from PSUadmin with generic stuff in it :<

I've never really been a pc gamer so sorry for this silly question. Do recommended specs usually mean what you need to play the game at max settings or normal settings? I would like to get a pc to run it at max and i'm not sure if that means I have to go above and beyond recommended specs.

You're confusing recommended and required. These are required, meaning you have to have at least that to run the game, period. Many games do not provide recommended specs, and even if they do, what exactly that means is variable.

Also note that this is for the alpha, so things could reasonably change by release.

You've still got two more chances. Of course, you'll have to subscribe first. =(

These requirements are not that low, they're slightly higher than Mass Effect 2 requirements, this ain't too bad, in my opinion.

If the requirements were much higher than this, that would mean that less players would have the chance to play PSO2 without upgrading their PCs.

The minimum requirements are definitely a lot higher than PSU's though, so hopefully we'll get to see a lot more detailed environments than what PSU had.

Also it looks like alpha registration and the survey is on the pso2 site now.

You need that much to run the PSP emulator that runs PSO2.
