New Sega game ready for online play

Game publisher Sega on Tuesday released "Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II," the first game to take advantage of new online capabilities for Nintendo's GameCube. The game--originally developed for Sega's now-defunct Dreamcast console--can be played offline in single-player mode. Those wanting to compete against other players over the Internet must pay Sega a $9 monthly subscription fee and have a GameCube equipped with a broadband or dial-up Internet adapter.

Nintendo has been the most cautious of the major game companies in embracing online play, as Sony and Microsoft pursue more elaborate plans to push games online.
