P. Star beta this weekend
Sega is saying that the free Phantasy Star Universe beta, delayed from its original date of October 11th, will now be available on Xbox Live "this weekend." The unfortunate news is that despite the postponement, sign-ups will still last two days and the beta will still end October 18th. The retail version of the game will launch October 24th for the PC, 360 and PS2, and at that point will cost a subscription fee for online play. A single-player adventure will be playable without extra cost.
