Sega cures PSO ills in Japan

Send and patch

Sega has promised that the nasty disconnection bug afflicting broadband Phantasy Star Online players will be fixed and game discs replaced. That's the latest word from Japan on a saga that's becoming hugely embarrassing both to Sega and Cube platform holder Nintendo.

It is not known if the broadband adapter problem also plagues the US release of the game, but we've yet to see any reports.
