    Default PS2 service ending March 31; update 3rd announced for PC

    http://phantasystaruniverse.jp/news/...e=view&id=1316

    It has finally been decided by SonicTeam that the PS2 version of AOTI will be dropped and the game will become PC-exclusive after the end of maintenance on March 31, 2011. This decision is due to the upcoming "update 3rd" which will add completely new content to the game.

    PS2 players are urged to upgrade to the PC version which is free to download. Also, a special campaign is planned to occur in April for players who make the switch. However, if you do not intend to change over to the PC version and your GUARDIANS License is automatically renewing each month, you must manually cancel your license, otherwise you will continue to be charged.

    "Update 3rd" is planned to begin in April, following the end of PS2 services. This update will add completely new fields and missions to the game. Also, look forward to an event which will be connected with Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity (which goes on sale February 24).

    Screens show Mt. Elbars and the seabed RELICS along with a De Ragan accompanied by two Grass Assassins... D:

    I'm ecstatic about this news. I was actually talking with shade just a few nights ago about this, too. I'd pretty much given up hope that they'd drop the PS2 version of the game (I figured it was too far along in its life to happen), but I'm happy that they've proved me wrong. It's going to be great getting to play the PSP2 areas in a proper format without having to deal with a handheld!

    Holy fucking bejeezus!!

    I hope they start putting into the main game some mechanics of PSPo2i, PUREASE!! D:

    Are those maps from PSPo, or are completely new? Also, the De Ragan with the assassins, looks interesting. Bosses with minions, that's something very common in other MMOs but neverseen in PSU, I like that. But well, let's hope that this update will lead to really HUGE updates, because dropping the PS2 for just normal ones wouldn't make sense otherwise.

    Chains and the new PP system will be hard to implement without a complete overhaul. The new PAs, however, will be pretty easy to copypasta into the game. Ditto for Mirage Blasts, the new Nanoblasts, manual blocking and Charge Shots. Even Dumans would be pretty easy to sneak in, their skins, animations and blast data are already programmed on the same engine.

    If they give us the other tweaks, such as the evasion rebalance where Acrofighters become the awesomest class ever, and the racial stat adjustments, and even the Acromaster (and even Vanguard as a basic type)... these are all possible with a big update.

    Hey, we can all dream, right?

    Also, I say "we" and "us" as if I'm on the JP servers at all.

    PSPo2 maps on PSU? Now that might make me join the JP servers. :3

    Haha....it's been nearly a year since I stopped playing PSU.

    At least they don't lose anything since PS2 and PC are linked. I wish that it would have been that way for us.

    If the 360 servers were JP only, it wouldn't have to end, since the 360 also supports an hard drive, which means it could get new areas as well (unlike the PS2).

    Not bad, but not that great either if they don't add the new enemies aswell, imo.

    It really is pathetic how much of this game we've missed out on.
