Viviennne Phantasy Star Potable

Phantasy Star Portable Launch Event On Friday March 6th

Phantasy Star Portable releases today, March 3rd, 2009. Phantasy Star Universe will be having a cross promotion launch event. It consists of Vivienne,  in search of her nemesis, Helga Neumann. There will be clues given out and tickertape messages. During the event a secret phrase will be revealed to the participating players. They will automatically receive these two prizes if they type it.

  • Holy Ray /D
  • Pumpkin Trick
  • Real Handgun+
  • Moatoob Collectible

On Thursday March 5th, the prizes have been changed to Real Handgun+ and Moatoob Collectible. In order to receive Moatoob Collectible you must say "Phantasy Star Portable Day" without quotes. In order to obtain Real Handgun+ you must participate in the event at the specific times, and say the secret phrase depending on which server it's on.

Whats the significance of these prizes? Holy Ray /D was supposed to be given during Mission Carnival's quiz mission. Unfortunately this mission was not released outside of Japan. Unfortunately this item will not be released at this time.

If you remember a while back, Pumpkin Trick was an item which was supposed to be given out during Halloween. There was a bug with the item and the GMs decided not to release it until later.

The event occurs at specific times throughout the day, we'll cover the specific times for each major time zones for United States and France.

PC/Ps2 Room Hacking Reported

GM Edward posted an announcement today that they are aware of the recent thefts of player shop items. The affected players had their items deleted from their shop. No announcement has been made for a rollback or compensation at this time.

We have received a number of reports recently of attacks on player shops for the PC/PS2 severs. We want to let everyone know that investigations for this are ongoing, and we will continue to take whatever actions are necessary to ensure the security of player accounts.

It would be a prudent measure at this point for players to lock their shops. If it was me, and there had been reports of these sorts of attacks, it’s the measure I would take. While I hate to encourage paranoia in this game—we’re all supposed to be having fun here, right?—this is a serious issue and no one wants to see any unnecessary damage to player accounts inflicted. “Lock your doors” should be a reasonable (and simple) security measure.

With regards to players who believe they have been affected, please report directly to help.sega.com. We will continue to investigate this issue. We’ll be working closely with the development team to find ways to deal with this and we will keep the community in the loop as best
