New items

It appears this was it for the remainder of the event.  The fan art contest winners will be mentioned in a later post.

Update: There was a posting in the form of a letter from the team to the players in light of PSU's second anniversary.  They of course thank the users for their continued support and bring up the releases of AOTI and recently successful PSP as well as the franchise's 20th Anniversary.  They also mention the upcoming digital purchase of PSUv1.  The team will continue to work on future content for the game and they ask in the standard fashion for continued support as they expand the game.

Update: There is a post about a scheduled maintenance for billing on September 2nd for around a half hour.  Gameplay is still possible, but there may be issues purchasing a subscription with a credit card.
