Sony to shut down servers for Resistance 1-3 in March 2014/GT5 in May 2014

    Well, Resistance 1 and 2 are old games, and I doubt the whole trilogy has much activity anyway, so it's not really surprising.

    GT5 is different though. I'm sure a lot of people still play that, and I wouldn't be surprised to know that many of them haven't (and won't) jump ship to GT6 for a while.

    I think we can objectively call it the best part of the game .

    This option was previously available on all games, before Sony removed it in an OFW update.

    This. Developer-managed servers has been the Achilles Heel of console gaming for the last generation. Peer-to-peer resolves that issue completely, sadly however, I don't see it happening anytime soon.

    I'd say how quickly that happens depends on the success of the SteamBox, but even then it probably wouldn't happen on every game.

    What online trophies does GT5 have? I haven't played it in years and might need to get those out of the way.

    I had a quick look at the list and the only two I can come up with is to share a photo and to share a created track.

    I don't think online is required for B-Spec, but it does make the grind less painful. I'm not 100% sure on that however, so someone else might clarify.

    Why would they shut down the server to a game that has been in development in a long time and just shut it down under four years?

    I guess GT6 has something to do with it.

    So, just trying to confirm this and make sure I understand it fully. These games are having the whole servers shut down, not just certain features? Online playability is eliminated for the games mentioned after these dates?

    Don't worry you have already unlocked two online trophies. Rest of the trophies are on your own. Good luck.

    this is why developers should either make player-run dedicated servers a standard feature or scrap the multiplayer client entirely.


    Online multiplayer in games that arn't built solely for it are dumb.


    Splitscreen multiplayer is better but the only ones who honestly cares about actual fun like that anymore is nintendo and various PC indie devs.

    Those are the only '"online" trophies.
    Sad that they will shutdown the servers for GT5. It's still one of the most online played games on PS3. I guess PD wants to push those players into playing GT6.

    More than likely not, though im still aiming to complete GT5 before I move onto GT6.

    You can still do it, but you'll really need to commit yourself to it, as it could take WEEKS to get through it. Buy the DLC maps, find a boosting partner and get to it!

    Cant imagine that U2 and U3 servers will be shut soon, isnt ND the server owner, not Sony? If Sony are starting to close some of their servers, I'd assume Killzone 2 and 3 will be probably be one of the next.
