Sony Shutting A Number Of Servers Used By PlayStation Games

Sony have announced the latest wave of servers to be shut down which will close the online features for a number of games. Most of them are rather old niche titles so no great loss, although we should have a tear in our eye when the final Motorstorm server goes offline. The only PS4 game affected is Gravity Rush 2.

Just Add Water have said “we are looking at options for Gravity Crash Ultra, but nothing is concrete at this time, or indeed even in time for August 27th”, so there’s a ray of hope if you still play that game.  Here’s the full list of games that will be hit.

  • PS3, PS Vita – Hustle Kings –You will no longer be able to use the online features for this title after 27th August 2018.
  • PS Vita – PlayStation Vita Pets – You will no longer be able to use the online features for this title after 27th August 2018.
  • PS3, PS Vita – Gravity Crash – You will no longer be able to use the online features for this title after 27th August 2018.
  • PS Vita – BigFest – You will no longer be able to use the online features for this title after 27th August 2018.
  • PS3 – MotorStorm Apocalypse – You will no longer be able to use the online features for this title after 27th August 2018.
  • PS4 – Gravity Rush 2 – You will no longer be able to use the online features for this title after 6am (GMT), 19th July 2018.

  1. Wow one PS4 game Gravity Rush 2 but then again it was coming since there were bad news about it a year ago or so…. shame as I did enjoy the 1st one on the Vita! Was hoping the 2nd to be free on Plus!
    Man Modnations and Motorstorm these were the fun days of TSA meets… man I loved the creations of the game. My favourite was The Joker and Jason Voorhees xD seen other great ones such as Mr T, certain superheroes etc….

  2. Typical, I got GR2 the other week, will have to try and complete it before the cut off.

    • It’s next in my backlog too. I don’t think you need to be online to finish the game or get the platinum, google seems to say online activities only unlock cosmetic items. Does that sound right folks?

      • Correcto! I checked before I bought it recently too haha

      • Cheers bud :)

  3. Pour one out for Modnation Racers and Motorstorm Apocalypse. I had a ton of fun with those on PS3.

  4. I don’t understand why ModNation Racers is then a completely dead duck. Surely we can play the career mode and track creator offline?! It doesn’t say online only on the box – I detest it when this happens.

    • It says Multiplayer and all online features will be terminated!
      So you can still play offline career I belive
