Apparently, some gamers are angry that Phantasy Star Online 2 is only playable in Japan, and have gone so far as to hack into the game servers and disrupt game play by moving critical NPCs. The hackers claim they’ve done it to teach Sega a lesson, and to force them to move more quickly toward a North American release.

How effective this will ultimately be is still in question. If Sega needs to go back and spend more time on making the existing Japanese version of the game more secure, that will obviously limit how much time they have to spend on the forthcoming English version.

No player data was compromised in the hack, and it does seem that the infiltrators’ only purpose was to disrupt the game for those who are able to play. This is some of the most well-planned-out griefing we’ve ever seen in a video game, and it doesn’t bode well for the relationship between Sega and its English speaking Phantasy Star Online 2 fans.
