    :nope:? In a blatantly stupid decision, earlier this week Sega cancelled the Xbox 360's physical copy release of Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus! And it gets worse!

    The game, or rather the online-only portion of it will be available for download as a staggering 1.7 GB patch file on XBL Arcade for 1600 XBL Points (equivalent to U.S.A. $16). Yes you read correctly, it will be a patch file, meaning you must still have the original PSU (Phantasy Star Universe) game in order to play. And yes, the patch only contains the new online-only game content. You do not get the actual sequel to PSU! No new offline only story mode or offline content of any kind whatsoever!? ? :yearight:

    Bad move Sega, very very bad move! If you're going to cancel a game don't wait until less than a month before the scheduled release date dashing the hopes of eagerly awaiting fans!? :mad:


    -------------------------
    On a side note I am very angry about this as I pre-ordered this game in early September, which is when Gamestop began taking pre-orders for it. To top that off, this is the first game I have ever bothered to pre-order. So now I have a worthless pre-order receipt for a game (or rather a version of it) that's not going to see the light of day. And ironically, the PS2 and PC versions of the game are still on target for the November 20th release date with no announced changes of any sort to them. grrr

    dang, that sucks. I think Sega just didn't think it would sell any good.

    I wouldn't doubt SEGA was taking pressure from Microsoft to have it that way.. If anything releasing a separate disc would make get them more subscriptions. Microsoft just wants to keep making more money off their point system.

    On a follow up to this.

    A couple of months ago all versions of PSU officially went offline, except for the Xbox 360 version. Sega claims the Xbox 360 version will continue to be officially supported and receive new events and quests for at least another year. Contradictory though, persons who only have the PSU game by itself will not be able to continue playing online unless they purchase the Ambition of the Illuminous DLC (Download Content) Through Xbox Live. The reasoning cited by Sega for this oddity is that the expansion now contains a patch which completely rebalances the game, a patch which they were apparently unwilling to make available to persons merely had the standalone copy of PSU.

    I don't know why Sega had to go and cancel their Xbox 360s physical copy of Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus! It is a great tragedy as I am sure there were a lot of people who enjoyed playing it and from what we gather from the forum it's going to be really expensive if we want to play that game again. I am sure that this is not a wise move from Sega and it is going to make a lot of people unhappy!

    Xem tất cả các loại răng sứ tại dây


    Răng toàn sứ

    Hiện nay, răng toàn sứ Zirconia là một trong những thế hệ toàn sứ mới và hiện đại hiện nay trên thế giới. Toàn bộ quá trình thiết kế (CAD – Computer Aided Design) và sản xuất (Computer Aided Manufacture) đều thực hiện trên máy tính.

    Ưu điểm:

    Răng toàn sứ có màu sắc đẹp tự nhiên, không gây dị ứng
    Loại răng sứ này có độ chính xác, thẩm mỹ cao. Sườn được làm bằng zirconia là vật liệu công nghệ cao đã được dùng trong tàu vũ trụ, làm khớp nhân tạo trong y học…, có độ bền và chịu lực rất tốt. Với những ưu điểm trên, răng toàn sứ đang là sự lựa chọn phổ biến.
    Nhược điểm:

    Do sử dụng công nghệ CAD/CAM nên phải đầu tư máy móc khá đắt tiền, các thỏi Zirconia đều phải nhập từ Mỹ hoặc Đức nên chi phí cho răng sứ toàn sứ khá cao (khoảng 4.500.000 đồng/chiếc).
    Tuy nhiên, nhờ những ưu điểm cao so với các loại răng sứ truyền thống nên ngày càng có nhiều bệnh nhân chọn loại răng sứ này, nhất là đối với những răng phía trước đòi hỏi độ thẩm mỹ cao.
    Với những phân tích về các loại răng sứ hiện nay, hy vọng bạn sẽ có cái nhìn tổng quan về răng sứ, từ đó chọn cho mình được loại răng sứ phù hợp nhất với mình nhé.
