We haven't missed out on a main-release PSO/PSU/PSP game yet. Infinity was kind of an add-on game. At any rate, I don't even think a JP release date has been announced. Alpha doesn't even start there until after the TGS, after all.:P
Alpha actually is supposed to start mid-August. TGS isn't until September, but PSO2 will be playable there.
I'm guessing US in 2045

Well, most of the core "problems" (bugs) Japan gets to deal with them first.
However, I would have to agree, I would like it here as well. I am excited for the release of the game.
My guess would be 2014 for the release date.
Assuming you are serious with that date, you are going to be very wrong.
I'm guessing December 2011 release in Japan and February/March 2012 everywhere else, assuming the release isn't international (it won't be).
