Back in January of 2001, PSO-World was created with the vision that it would not only serve the entire Phantasy Star community, but be run by the community as well. Ten years later, the site is still here doing what it was meant to do from the day its virtual doors were first opened, thanks to the hard work and dedication of many different people who have helped carry the torch over the last decade. A lot of things can happen over ten years. People come and go, web sites appear and disappear, and a TON of games get released. We've been fortunate enough to see many Phantasy Star games over the last ten years, and even more fortunate that PSO-World and its outstanding community have been here for the entire ride.
With this milestone behind us, we enter a new era for PSO-World and its community. We have a lot to look forward to in the future of Phantasy Star and the site. Phantasy Star Online 2 is on the horizon and a steady stream of other titles has given us plenty to work on. It's time for us to take things to the next level once again, to better serve the fans that have continued to support us for all of these years. With that said, 2011 will not only mark the 10th anniversary of PSO-World's existence, but also an evolution of the site as you know it! It is going to be a great year, and we'll be looking for more people who want to be a part of it. For the rest of the details, though, you'll just have wait and see!
On behalf of PSO-World, thank you to all of the visitors, contributors, members, staffers, and everyone else who has supported the site in one way or another over the last ten years. Your patronage is what kept this site alive for this long and what will keep it going into the foreseeable future. We'll be celebrating this momentous occasion all year, so stay tuned for some announcements regarding contests, prizes, and more!
