    Server Closure

    Thought I'd better post a thread here to inform anyone who's looking to play/boost the online trophies in Ghostbusters, since I haven't seen any other notification on this site - the PS3 online servers have been closed down. It's still up and running on the 360, but Ghostbusters on PS3 is now limited to single-player, sadly. So if any of you were looking to work on the online trophies, then I'm afraid you're too late.

    I got the platinum nearly 2 years ago, but I'm still disappointed at news of the closure, as I still played it online from time to time, and was even gearing up to help a couple of friends with the trophies. If there had been advance warning of the shutdown, we (and you guys) could have had time to do at least some of the work... but the closure seemingly happened more or less out of the blue. The servers were temperamental even at the best of times, requiring you to wait 5 or more minutes between matches so your stats could update, and often failing to connect people in the same game, and since the online has been quiet for some time anyway, Atari obviously decided to just pull the plug and save themselves the trouble of maintaining it.

    It's always sad when a good game suffers like this, particularly when there's little to no advance notification from the developers. Ghostbusters is a truly iconic franchise, and I'm sorry to see it experience this. If enough people bombard Atari with requests to reopen the servers (and I'll join in if a petition or somesuch is launched), then I guess it's possible that they'll consider reactivating them; but I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

    Damn. That is horrible news, but like all games, it comes to an end with the online stuff Despite being laggy at time, that was one of my more favorable MP games. Bye bye GB

    Sanctum of Slime was separate from the video game if I am not mistaken but the online trophies needed for that are dead and hard to get any1 to play

    Wish they would just patch it for split screen and LAN. Would do a great service to the gaming community.

    The game is fun and above that it is worth the platinum!

    This is why I stick with single-player trophy lists only.
