Japanese version of Xbox Phantasy Star Online to close

The Xbox version of Phantasy Star Online is going to be shut down, notes SiliconEra and the official PSO.jp site. The Japanese version of the well-known console MMOG will be closed almost five years after its initial launch on Microsoft's platform. Sega hasn't announced any similar plans for the US version of either the Xbox or 360 versions of the title.
