After the disastrous, bug-plagued launch of the GameCube Phantasy Star Online, Sega has announced that version 1.1 of the game, a revised edition eliminating problems, will be released in early December and that punters can obtain it by mailing their original game to Sega. However, sadly the new version of the game runs on separate servers and in the transition, characters will be stripped of all their items and equipment. D'oh!
PSO Episode I & II is due out in Q2 2003 in Europe. It'll be stable by then, probably.
