"We built the Texter to make texting a seamless part of gameplay," stated Walt Wilson, Chief Operating Officer, Blue Orb, Inc. Wilson added, "We've worked with SEGA to make this Special Edition Texter the next great tool for the Phantasy Star Universe gamer. Every aspect of the design and packaging was driven by people who love the game-and it shows."
Gamers can use the Texter with the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 2 system in online environments for in-game text messaging, with additional messaging options through the Xbox Live® Dashboard for Xbox 360 players. Typing with the Texter is much faster than using on-screen keyboards and also replaces the need for an external USB keyboard, making messaging a natural part of the gaming experience.
The Phantasy Star Universe Special Edition Texter comes packaged with posters and stickers featuring characters from the game. Additionally, a "Guardian's Code" included with every Special Edition Texter allows the purchaser to get a free Phantasy Star Universe t-shirt in his or her size from the Blue Orb Web Site.
The Phantasy Star Universe Special Edition Texter for the PS2 will retail for $34.95, while the X360 model will retail for $39.95. Both models will be available in June 2007.
