Sony closing servers for some PS2 and PSP games
Sony has announced today that as from June 30th, 2008 a variety of PS2 and PSP games will no longer be online compliant.
Here is the list in full:
Destruction Derby Arenas
Syphon Filter Omega Strain
This is Football 2004
This is Football 2005
Twisted Metal: Black Online
World Tour Soccer 2
After this date, you will still be able to play them offline, with the exception of EyeToy Chat and Twisted Metal: Black Online, which do not have offline modes.
More PlayStation 3 News...
That really sucks... Not that I ever used eyetoy chat, or for that matter ever managed to get my PS2 online (setup was more difficult on PS2 than PS3)
I heard Portable ops was going down too, because of MGO... I hope that's not a trend...
That sounds odd. Portable Ops isn't that old or unpopular yet.
I also read that Monster Hunter and RE: outbreak series are offline too. I wish Capcom would have private server option built into the game or something.
Monster hunter! I never even got a chance to play it once >_>...
I hope it doesn't shut down this year.
atv offroad fury no longer works online either
Reminds me of when they canned the Metal Gear online servers = (...
Although, they SHOULD get rid of the Socom 1 server... anybody who still plays that online is nuts.
Bah! Twisted Metal Black... WHY!
I got a chances to play Resident Evil online once. It's sad to hear companies just abandoning instead of improving online games.
