      Hot on the heels of the 360 closure. Yeah I thought it had another year left in it too considering how long PSOBB ran after PSU's launch.

      Let's look at the bright side. At least we'll have free premium. I'm not being sarcastic! :}

      That's pretty sad. I still occasionally play on the JP servers, but it's pretty much a ghost town there now that PSO 2 is out. It's a shame, because in so many ways PSU is a much better game than PSO 2; more people should have played it. Oh well. *lays a rose for PSU*

      Yea, exactly. Psu had so many more areas to explore and wasnt as liner as pso2 is now, and each planet has multiple lobbies which looked very awesome. What pso2 is missing which i miss SO much from Psu are the lobbies. Im so sick of seeing the same boring lobby, and Psu made several awesome areas for people to hang out in. For example: Paracabana Coast. Psu wasnt just a game, it was also a place to sit and chat with other people, now its just to run around killing things. Honestly, Pso2 would be 100x better if they added more social features which psu had
