Phantasy Star Universe – PSU PC Updated, PSU PS2 closes!

It seems that the era of Phantasy Star Universe is coming to a close. Today Sega have announced that the Japanese Playstation 2 PSU servers will be shut down, leaving only the PC version still up and running.

However it’s not all doom and gloom; with the closing of the PS2 servers, the PC version of PSU is getting a substantial update introducing new areas, photon arts, items, special abilities and more. All are based on Phantasy Star Portable 2 or Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity.

With Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity doing well in the Japanese charts (well deserved) and the much anticipated Phantasy Star Online 2 on its way the Phantasy Star series looks set to continue for many years to come.

Hit the jump to see an early rundown of the new content coming to PSU-PC soon.

Donation button put up, server move details

We have put up a donation button on the right hand side (points to it), so if any of you guys want to help out the site by dropping a few dollars our way we appreciate it. Also, we will be moving servers soon, hopefully in the next few days. This will mean some down time, hopefully not too much. Some users have been contacting me via e-mail and MSN that they heard rumors that the site was joining some network. False. We are not for sale, but thanks for shopping.

Outside of the server move, not much to talk about here. We will be changing some stuff around the main page and the forums, but not big changes. I’m quite happy with our sites layout and functionality. Suggestions?
