PSO Archive is back! You can thank Google for the downtime. They apparently implemented a new "security" system a few months ago when we went offline that was issuing false-positives for viral infections on websites not hosted by them. This resulted in the smaller webhosting companies receiving rather nasty letters from both Google and Google affiliated cyber security companies basically demanding that said websites be taken offline or else Google would delist every website they host from searches, not to mention the rather questionable security companies in question would also flag said sites as infection risks. I would just like to make it clear that there never was an infection risk from PSO Archive, with the exception of the main page (where you are right now), the rest of this website is entirely HTML encoded. The only non-HTML code on this page is a tiny piece of javascript used for PSO Archive's ExtremeTracking.com account that is a rather simple, publicly viewable, site visitor counter.

New section added! Just to be clear, this new section has basically nothing to do with PSO in general, but is content not entirely unrelated. Many moons ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth (well maybe), Tweeg dabbled in making checklists of Dreamcast games. Said checklists were originally hosted exclusively on a rather fantastic website by the name of Dreamcast Magic, but have actually been hosted exclusively on PSO Archive now for many years, ever since the demise of Dreamcast Magic. No mention of such has ever been made from the main site menu and now with the PlayStation Vita being the present core of his collecting desires new collecting media has been made and at last enough content exists to create a dedicated section. Unlike the rest of PSO Archive, the collector's aids may be updated from time to time without any mention as to such, please keep that in mind.

What of PSO Archive's future? You might ask. The Google stupidity that had kept the site down for many months this yea was a rather major blow to productivity, but otherwise the site is alive and well. New content is still in the works. Sister site PSOArchive.com is temporarily down while undergoing a design overhaul, but should be back up again sometime soon I'm told.

As for the PSO franchise itself... The future is even more unclear now than it was back in February. On the upside, a PSO2 themed anime series is being produced in Japan. On the downside, Sega of America & Europe (SoA/SoE) seem to be about as alive as a dead fish. Atlus, which is now owned by Sega is doing well as usual, but despite being given free reign by Sega Corporate over all Sega franchises the folks at Atlus so far seem entirely uninterested as they are very heavily wrapped up in their own projects and pre-existing franchises to bother with any of them.

As previosuly mentioned last update, Phantasy Star Nova may still be our best hope of ever seeing any official release outside of Asia of any part of the PSO2 franchise, but I no longer have confidence that it will be Sega to bring it out in the English langauge. More likely, if even possible, a niche company such as NIS (which has licensed from Sega before), or one of the relatively new start-up publishers, such as Limited Run Games or FanGamer, will be the one to localize and bring this game out of Japan if it ever happens at all.
