How hard would this platinum be without other online players helping get through the latter part of the game?  I've never tried this game but always have heard great things about it.

Do you guys think that the affected trophies could be done in such a short time frame?  I don't want to start playing this game only to discover that two or three trophies would require more time & effort to obtain.

Soul Sacrifice Delta is Japan version of Soul Sacrifice or what the difference? Also we need to buy brand new copy of Soul Sacrifice Delta to access online? 
I see physical copies of Delta is only from Japan? Never out in US/EU? It’s mean we can’t activate online pass on our Eu/us accounts. The only way is to buy digital version of delta. Right?

Yes technically they can be in the timeframe. There only 2 that need Mp and that kill 20 archfiends. Which if you do a say low lvl one can be killed in seconds if you have high up gear.

And can also be done with ad hoc when mp is offline. The rest is grinding and yes it well be hard to do higher missions solo. But not impossible. As i Solo all but 1 mission in the OG.

Oh, I see.  Thanks for the clarification.
One thing I still don't understand, it's about this Ad hoc thing.  Does it mean that I need another Vita and another copy of the game?

Ideally, an actual friend who is playing the game too, as a lot of the high level bosses will really need multiple people to beat - probably possible solo with an afk second vita, but that could be a really painful experience. Much better with a friend who can ad-hoc play with you.

I think the online pass is region bound. I have a physical copy. 

 

But I was wondering if the game has received a patch that perhaps makes the online pass no longer required to play online. 

 

The pass is free, but only available if you buy the game. It isn't available separate on the PlayStation Store (I can't find it).

You need the Online Pass to go online. I couldn’t even download the DLC and update to the latest version of the game without the Online Pass.

Does this affect both the original game and Delta, or is the original game's online just down already? I'm asking cause I'm not seeing an equivalent thread in that one, or a mention of it here. If I'm not mistaken only that was given through PS+, right?

I'm pretty close of completing the chapters solo. For anyone wondering how hard is it solo, it's not very hard at all. The AI are pretty good and can hold their own compare to the original version of the game. You don't even need a second copy of the game or another vita. You can just start a lobby and beat the level 1 boss on adhoc mode over and over again once you max out your gear that can handle rank 15 bosses.

 

The game is a grindfest.

It affects both the original and Delta and on the same date.

I read in another forum that this online shutdown would only affect JP version as it uses dedicated servers whereas EU & US use P2P.  Is this true?

So, there is no need for overpowered online players to help?
I've been playing Freedom Wars and boy... the last set of missions i.e. Code 8 are impossible solo, at least for me.  So I wonder if this game is the same.

Based on what I've played so far, it should be pretty manageable solo. The first Soul Sacrifice I can confidently say was, since I've completed that, and so far delta has been less of a challenge due to the AI actually doing something.

 

Freedom Wars is indeed a different beast. Did that years ago while the online was still populated with people doing high level stuff and that saved a lot of time and effort.

 

Oh and although the matchmaking itself might be P2P, there are some online functions in the game like a faction standings system where you can log in and claim rewards based on your faction and weekly contribution. But it's just extra as far as trophies and playing the game are concerned.

So basically, Freedom Wars does contain multiplayer trophies which require online play, but all the Soul Sacrifice multiplayer trophies CAN be done offline? Just read the news about the servers going off and am getting a bit concerned...

All 3 games have MP trophies can be done via Ad-Hoc so the server closure isn't as big of a deal as it otherwise would have been :).

Having looked at the online for Soul Sacrifice Delta, I don't believe slayer points are affected by the online. However, if you want to connect and look at the factions in the Bazaar Lodge, you need an online connection.

 

I'll test it with my Wifi turned off if it records the slayer points though and report back.

 

EDIT: With Wifi turned off, I would be able to log my slayer points. So once the servers shut down, those slayer points trophies won't be affected.
