If someone wouldve told me in 2012 that the ps3s online gameplay would still be up in 2020 I wouldve laughed at them.
Has anyone got any ideas on when sony will Finally pull the plug on the ps3 online services??

Sony is will known to close their gaming online servers after 5 or 6 years as the game will be dead. But for the PS3 online servers I don't think they will close it down as people still using it but they won't update the store as they said last years.

I get the feeling that they will stay online for a lot longer than anticipated. I say this because a lot of content from Ps3 was ported over to Ps4 and will be compatible with Ps5. Provided there is no technical reason that would hold back the Ps4/5 network there is little reason to shutdown the Ps3 network, it will probably just be put onto a back burner server that needs minimal running costs.
