Phantasy Star Online 2’s launch in North America was a disaster thanks to the Windows Store. Though some players were able to get in and play just fine, many had frustrating issues like the game redownloading itself constantly, not working for mysterious reasons, or saddling them with unbearable lag when hanging out with other players in PSO2’s hub areas. Though Microsoft and Sega still haven’t worked out all the fixes, players aren’t waiting. They’ve already updated a custom launcher to circumvent the Windows Store entirely, fixing almost all of PSO2’s major problems.
