PS3 SERVERS SHUT DOWN: Gran Turismo 5, Resistance Series, SOCOM Series, And MAG

PS4 vs PS3

Sony is prematurely pulling the plug on Gran Turismo 5 as well as the Resistance series while arguably putting the dead dog to rest with both the SOCOM and MAG series. This is perhaps worst for MAG players as the title has no single player experience to speak of. Gran Turismo 5 and Resistance 3 are particularly surprising to see shut down this early in the game though and beg the question of gamers – when will Sony shut off Gran Turismo 6 if this is what they consider a decent life span for GT5’s online mode?

Time will tell, but luckily online isn’t as important for GT6 as it is for a first person shooter like Resistance. Players who never got to experience the arguably unique gameplay of Resistance 2’s online mode are completely out of luck if they don’t jump on it soon, and this action sets a precedent for even older titles like Warhawk which Dylan Jobe recently told us was safe – we’re not so sure after this (hopefully they green-light his vision for a Warhawk PS4 title. It would appear Sony doesn’t care about meeting the same standards as the PlayStation 2 era in terms of keeping online servers up for popular games.

January 28, 2014 is the Official Shut Down Date for these games. Sony has yet to comment how many other games are being shut off in 2014 and which / when.

Rumor: Warhawk PS4 Coming Soon

Warhawk II

Dylan Jobe has expressed in the past that “Sony knows where to find me” in regards to a PlayStation 4 project for the esteemed Warhawk title, and recently let us know directly that the Warhawk PS3 Servers WILL NOT BE SHUTTING DOWN YET. But it appears much more than this is the situation indeed. Dylan Jobe and his team at Lightbox Studio have apparently continued working on Warhawk as a higher-end model of the game meant for PlayStation 4 and intend to bring 3D Models they’ve created as well as pitch and design ideas to Sony for their perusal as a remake or newer version of Warhawk could someday see its release on the next-gen Sony PS4.

Fans have been clamoring for a Warhawk 2 ever since the Starhawk title released which was a great game but just not as good as the original Warhawk and servers remain full of Warhawkians to this day who are loyal to the brutality that can’t be found anywhere else. For now, we wait… hope… and pray.

P.S. Before you go saying I’m crazy for posting this, I was talking about Starhawk two years before it came out so relax!

Are Warhawk Servers In Danger? Dylan Jobe Says SONY Hasn’t Said So

Warhawk Best Multiplayer Game of All Time

In a casual conversation with a fellow Warhawkian over Twitter this evening @DylanJobe responded to our fears of Warhawk’s PlayStation 3 Dedicated Servers being shut down. For those of you that know me well you know that Warhawk is my favorite multiplayer game of all time. The topic came up as we were both discussing PlayStation 4 titles and our fond memories of the incredible Warhawk game.

Recently rumors had been circulating the PSN chat waves that Warhawk’s PS3 servers would be shut down “soon”. When asked by twitter user @keithelliott1 (known as AutoTranz to the PSN / Warhawk community) @DylanJobe replied from his official Twitter account with the following tweet:

Warhawk Dedicated Servers

Here are the PS3 Warhawk Dedicated Servers in all their glory.

Now if only the Warhawk community could get together and bring SONY to the realization of how amazing this title was, bring it back somehow for the next-gen, then I could die a happy man having seen nothing like it and nothing as good since I first began shooting stuff on DOOM.
