    Gamecube game Phantasy Star not working?

    Hi all.

    I tried some of my friends Gamecube games and for some reason the game Phantasy Star doesn't work properly, or I'm missing something. I had a Gamecube controller plugged in, it loads the game but goes to the screen where I'm supposed to use the "C" control stick to scroll down, but it just won't read any buttons at all, only up and down movement. The controllers were working fine with other Gamecube games.

    Anyone else tried Gamecube Phantasy Star on their Wii ??

    Thanks,
    the$#!Za.

    Not sure what's wrong, but you probably can't play Phantasy Star online when it's on the Wii. Only when you play it on the GC

    no it did work on the Wii,
    but they cancelled online service for all 3 of the phantasy star games on the GC, i played them for a while on the wii when i first got it but i think it was september 2007 they ended service. I think the saem is true for the dreamcast,PC, and xbox versions of the games.

    SEGA dropped online support for these games, weather someone will pick it back up for a fee in the future is still up in the air...

    Pso

    That's really a bummer I was thinking about getting them again...

    The PSO I & II was pretty cool, an action online rpg but you had to have the dialup modem for the GCN and pay 15.00 per month and there weren't too many people who played that game online...

    I had the PSO III C.A.R.D too and it was killer online I stopped playing those games when my parents overdrew my credit card I've been in debt ever since..


    I wonder how many other GCN games don't work with the Wii...

    well phantasy star is the only online games for the GameCube there were 3 of them total..

    the other games that you can try online is the broadband games like MKDD,1080 avalance,kirbys air ride... where you hook them together using lan adapters on the GC and a tunnling software online... but you have to schedual lan partys you cant just hop online and play them...

    Ahh ok thanks for the info guys, CONFIRMED that Gamecube's Phanatsy Star Online don't work on the Wii, or as wezeles confirmed it "used to" work until the online service was cancelled. I had every Nintendo System except for the Gamecube which is why I don't know much about it.

    Out of curiousity, was Phantasy Star Online "only" for online play as in no such thing as playing without the internet/LAN ??

    Cheers,
    Ash.

    hmm? no way..
    Sega released an annoucement months ago that they were discontinuing service. It didnt work for a while, i havent bothered playing since then...

    maybe they had enough outcry from fans to keep it going...
    It never was super popular on GC but i liked it, ill have to try it again havent touched it since it shut down... Ill have to look into it
