Phantasy Star Online 2 Hacked, NPCs Moved

Phantasy Star Online 2 was released recently in Japan, and comes to the west in early 2013, and the hackers have already started taking control. This week players managed to hack into the MMO and played a prank by moving NPCs around and out of reach of gamers. Sega claims that they are investigating the hack and that no data was leaked in the process.

Phantasy Star Online has always had problems with security holes, from the original which could be hacked with Gameshark, to rampant item duping and other hacks. Unlike real MMOs, Phantasy Star Online runs many operations client-side, offering a major opportunity for players to make alterations with the way their client connects with the server. The NPC glitch above has reportedly been in the game since the beta first launched.
