Phantasy Star Online 10th Anniversary is Today!

Today is Phantasy Star Online's 10th Anniversary. Today on December 21st 2000, Phantasy Star Online was launched to the public. The Phantasy Star Online 2 portal was updated to reveal a brief history of all the games we've seen thus far after the release of Phantasy Star Online.

Now that PSPo2i brings back several memories of Phantasy Star Online, we can now head forth into the future with Phantasy Star Online 2.  Unfortunately no new information about Phantasy Star Online 2 was revealed, but the day is still young, I'd expect something to leak out on today of all days.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary, Sega is holding events across PSU called the Ragol Memorial Festa where you play in the PSO areas. Also there's a screenshot event for PSOBB where players can take pictures of their time before it shuts down. PSOBB Japan shuts down next week Monday.
