    Sony needs those servers for PS4. The server load over the xmas holidays from the rush of new PS4 owners is causing alot of PSN issues.

    It still pisses me off motorstorm pacific rift got shut down, loved that game online, was a right blast.

    Can't believe GT5. Very shitty indeed for what is the (I think?) best selling exclusive PS3 title.

    ADD more servers, not move servers. Don't take away servers from games that use them still, actively.

    Can't most of these games still have online play with players hosting their own servers? Is this just dedicated servers shutting down?

    Well like it or not I'm sure they are moving servers as they start to focus more on the PS4. As it is all the big Sony studios are working on PS4 projects now.

    Like I said, just add more servers... don't move servers. Meh. I don't care either way personally. The backlash they'll get is completely different than my personal feelings.

    Oh yeah I totally agree with you for sure. They should just add servers and leave the other ones alone.

    Looks like they're doing an EA with GT5 servers to push people to GT6. I'll need to get its online trophies and it seems Resistance 3 had no online trophies so I'm good there. Glad I got that 10,000 kills trophy back in the summer for R2 though, annoying as hell.

    But yeah shutting down servers is complete shit especially when some games are like 2 or 3 years old, yet games like ModNation Racers are still up despite being a ghost town online.

    Anyway, this came from the UK. Is this going to be a universal thing later on?

    I am surprised to see GT5 on that list (the rest of the games I can understand due to activity -- I mean, if no one is playing those games, why keep the servers up? I wanted to play Resistance 3 online but couldn't find one game at all -- a few months back, but still...if no one is playing, no one is playing.)

    I agree. I thought they'd start adding a load more servers hence the big push to charge for PSN .

    This is the problem with games moving more and more towards online-only. You don't really own the experience anymore. You're dependent on the developer. You can only play the game as long as they allow you to.

    Yeah, pretty unfortunate. People need to support games that are online only less and less. Warhawk is an online only game BUT you can host your own server AND it does have offline local multiplayer. Some games that are online only don't even offer that as an option -- those games we definitely need to avoid or they should cost less than other games.

    Well even if its P2P there still needs to be a master server(s) for players to ping and find other players to play with.

    You might be able to use something like Tunngle and routed your PS3 through your PC to find other like minded players but my guess is those players will be few and far between thats even if it is possible.

    And this is why I'm loathing some developers on the PC going the sole developer hosting solution. There's still a very active Unreal Tournament community out there and if it was on the console then people wouldn't be playing it at all. It's amazing what player hosted dedicated servers can do to a community and a franchise.

    Maybe developers should start releasing software for the PC so that players can host their own dedicated servers for their own console game.

    Dunno about R3 but Resistance 2 has a lot of people still playing, I managed to get the Killing Machine trophy not too long ago and didn't struggle to find games with 20+ people at any time of the day.

    That's what I'll be doing from now on tbh, especially with Sony's games, I feel pressured into buying games ASAP and playing the online portion of the games instead of buying years down the line and enjoying it. And as greedy as Activision is, they still have CoD3s servers up and it's like 8 years old, unless it's P2P, but there's plenty of games' servers still up that are older than even R:FoM.

    that's the problem with free things, they must come to an end. still, they will get backlash for this but when is this going to happen?

    i think Sony is trying not to bleed money anymore on it. this will definitely cut off PS3's life support but it will give them more resources and cut costs to likely be used for the PS4.
