Three more series will soon be stepping up to the firing line as Sony plans to cease online support for more of its first/second party software. As of August 31st, players will no longer be able to access online features for The Eye of Judgment: Legends, Sony’s portable, gimmick-free take on the popular PS3 card game.
Shortly after, on October 1st, SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3, MotorStorm Arctic Edge, and surprisingly, MotorStorm Pacific Rift, will be stripped of online functionality.
It’s always a shame to see some of our favourite online games stubbed out due to server closures.
However, Sony doesn’t take pleasure in pulling the plug on its pool of fondly-remembered, yet constantly-ageing multiplayer titles. One has to imagine that, due to inactivity, it becomes difficult for the publisher to justify the costs behind running and maintaining servers that are growing more barren as the years pass.
