Other: PSOBB English Servers to Close

To quote playsega.com:

We regret to announce that you will no longer be able to purchase Hunters’ Licenses for Phantasy Star Blue Burst from the January 9th 2008. All subscription-based services will be terminating on Jan 9th, 2008. If you have an active subscription terminating between January 9th 2008 and February 9th 2008, your Hunters’ License will be valid until February 9th, at which point the game servers will be made available free of charge to all previous Hunters’ License holders. Phantasy Star Blue Burst game servers will be closed down on March 31st, 2008.

This is quite unfortunate. Truthfully, I haven't had much time to enjoy either PSOBB or PSU in the last couple of months, but I'll definately be jumping on there to wrap up anything I've been meaning to do. Remember though that any attention that they still gave PSOBB can be fueled right into PSU and I'm sure that we'll benefit from the change. Read ClumsyOrchid's post for more details.

I suppose all that will be left at that point officially will be PSOBB JP and PSOX.

Edit: There will be increased experience and drop rates during the last length of PSOBB. The announcement thread has also been opened to allow comments. It was also mentioned that at the moment they don't have plans yet for taking the forums down.
