    Sony Is Discontinuing Online Features For GT5 And Resistance - iGame Responsibly

    Thoughts? Glad I got the for R2 already!! R3 can be done solo, so no lost there for me, and GT5 only have 2 online that can be gotten well before it close down.

    The Resistance trilogy will be shut down in March, and GT5 in May.

    Well, fuck. Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 can't be far behind. So many MP trophies, so little time.

    Good luck on trying to plat R2 and GT5. It was a total pain to pop the for R2, but I finally got it done. GT5 on the other had, I haven't played, but I'll get those 2 online trophies soon.

    Agreed, always loved to watch noob Soldiers run up to hordes of Chimeras and get gunned down. Ahh good times. Well, better start boosting R2 online.

    I knew that, and I meant to change that in the OP, but I couldn't change it in the title.

    Yea, don't trust that iGame Responsibly site, it is confusing to us like that. Sony can help to notify us about everything.

    Time to get those MP trophies done.

    Hopefully I can get Warhawk and UC3 done before they cut support for them as well.

    Yo, you have the DLC for UC3? If so, you wann try to tackle the DLC sometime? Once I'm done with DOA5U, R&C Into the Nexus, I'll be free to do those DLC's. I have the GOTY edition, so just hit me up.

    While I disagree with shutting down the servers for any game when trophies are contingent on the game being online (particularly Sony first or second-party titles ), I try not to let it affect me. The simple fact is we're all going to end with potentially hundreds of Plat trophies on our profiles before we take the big dirt nap, so what's a few missing games here and there?

    If a game's online is worth playing, I would have done it years ago and as much as I'd like to, realistically I can't Plat all of my games. So I'm not going to waste months of gaming time on a single kill grind trophy for R2 and will invest that time into a dozen other Plats that I otherwise wouldn't have time to play.

    Can't imagine they would shut down the UC3 servers (I'm hoping as I just bought the DLC and plan on boosting it) for quite a while at least considering how they celebrated two of UC3 by having some of the DLC maps free of charge and would be a bit of a dick move I think if they were to shut down so soon after making them free. I bet however LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2 and/or Killzone 2 and 3 could be facing the same fate two which I also hope won't happen to them.

    Which is why all games should go to peer-to-peer online servers after the developer backs out.
