The big news this week is that Phantasy Star Universe has been officially announced for the Xbox 360! Good news for gamers who want to play their console games on a console. Judging from Sega’s history with Phantasy Star Online, chances are this 360 version will not tax the system particularly, and will likely be almost a straight port of the PS2 and PC game. Just cost $10 more or something :P
Sega’s holding a Puyo Puyo Fever 2 (Windows PC version) Online event from April 20 through April 26! It’s a celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Puyo Puyo series!
Other than that, not much news – Sega Japan’s done updates to some of their game sites such as Sonic Riders and Shining Wind, but thanks to the impending E3, I expect the Sega news world to be pretty quiet.
