Sony Is Discontinuing Online Features For GT5 And Resistance

According to Sony support, online features for PS3 titles Gran Turismo 5 and the Resistance trilogy will soon be terminated. Resistance 1-3 are first on the docket, going offline on March 28th, 2014.  Gran Turismo 5 will follow on May 20th.

Does this mark the beginning of the end for PlayStation 3 online support? More than likely the titles in question no longer have an active online community, so the upkeep on the online servers simply isn’t worth it.

    Error in the article. You state “Gran Turismo 4″ is going offline May 20th rather than “Gran Turismo 5.”

    My friend, Icebergslim, was the best in the world at Resistance 2 deathmatch for quite a while, #1 out of ~225000 when he stopped playing. I think he went 52 wins without getting killed once, not losing, getting killed. Not once. Really fun to watch him play. He’ll be choked at this news even though he retired the R2 disc 6 months ago.

    Aw hell, and I still own GT5, but I haven’t played it for long time, and now this makes me feel tempted to play more GT5 through online before it’s too late…

      Are you the same person that I met in one article about the Xbox One oil leakage? Because I can trace that you wrote Sony as $0N¥, so unless you’re afraid to tell me more about yourself, then I feel bad about you, because I don’t tolerate that you’re trolling around.
