Starting on December 21st, 2005 Sega and Sonic Team will be celebrating the 5 year Anniversary of Phantasy Star Online. The title first launched as PSO ver 1 in Japan on 12.21.2000 for the Sega Dreamcast. While it wasn't the first online console RPG to hit the scene(Hudson's Rune Jade for Dreamcast was actually the very first), PSO has solidified itself as the first successful mass scale online RPG to reach home consoles. Phantasy Star Online connected gamers from all over Planet Earth to explore and discover a whole new world, Ragol.

There will be a new website going live near the end of the year. It will be exciting to see exactly what type of content goes up because Sonic Team will most likely be pushing this as a tribute to not only PSO, but its humble beginnings on the Dreamcast console.

This exciting news, because it brings Phantasy Star Online and most importantly the Sega Dreamcast back to center stage.

GameCube PSO Ep1&2 and Ep3 might see some special content or lobby decorations during this time period. Nothing has been announced yet, but it is possible. A great idea would be for Sonic Team to release a new card for EP3 to celebrate the anniversary. I would love that.
