Is there a chance for server to re-open?

55 posts in this topic

I think GT5 is the world most purchase racing game. still now we see lots more players still playing. So the game is not dead yet and I dont think will ever be. Thats a more reason to re-open the server!!!! Im not asking them for new races but keeping the community and 1-2 service going still resonable than completely close. Keeping the service open even on weekends is still ok


Plus with the game still purchasable on Psn makes it worth the try

In regards to your final comment, I don't really mind if a dev wants to shut down the servers for their game (I mean I wish they didn't, but I understand why they eventually do), but in those situations they should be required to either patch out online trophies or stop selling the game on PSN (retail copies are out there, it'd be too hard to enforce individual retailers, especially mom and pop shops, to pull it off their shelves).  I see games where the servers have been shut down for years still being featured and getting sales and promotions on PSN.  That's kind of ridiculous, especially for games where the online is the majority of the experience.

 

For GT5 itself I'm not really bothered as I already have the plat (sorry), but I do feel your pain.  I bought Bulletstorm a week before the servers shut down and I never got a chance to play it.

Hats off on your GT5 Plat :yay: Well compare to other server that been shut down GT5 is more popular and PSN still making money on DLC, so chances not completely off

It did with Borderlands 1, but they didn't have the intention to close it on the first place. I think GTA4 and RDR also had a brief moment of fuckup.

Well normally a server closure is legit Rip, however with enough pressure from fans some devs have actually reopened servers before.

Resistance 3 was closed, re-opened for a couple of hours/days (there are videos if you don't believe me) and again re-closed once and for all, AFAIK.

"Still purchasable on PSN"? There's no digital version of GT5.

As much as I would love to see this and get those unattainable trophies I have always wanted. I'm afraid we will never see this. There is that slight chance they will open the servers again like what they did with Borderlands.

It would be nice if Sony re-open the online mode, but they did it because GT6 wasn't as good nor had the same sales as it, I never played online, but certain parts needed it, to boost levels or buy some cars, I played only the online challenges to earn more credits and to boost levels, but they did it, I'm disappointed about that.

Sad to think most games that require online trophies servers eventually get shut down kinda a bummer for us trophy hunters looking to go for the platinum trophy but can't due to the servers being closed down. Even though there's no online trophies for this, still it's kinda a bummer.

I would like to see the servers reopen. I did manage to get the online trophies luckily, but I miss the XP bonuses gained from consecutive days logged in. It would make my A-Spec grind to level 40 a lot easier!

Hah, i managed to get A-Spec and B-Spec to 40 in time. I've even grinded a certain Seasonal event for money and got one of every buyable car.

 

Too bad i didn't manage to get all Museum Cards and the Racing Suits/Helmets. :(

Then which NFS is at the top?

Gran Turismo 5 sold 10mln units. The NFS series has sold an average of 12.8mln units between 2003 and 2008 and the best selling NFS is Most Wanted PS2 with over 16mln units :) Edited by Winston

Nice. I got B-Spec in time and it was pretty lucrative, I kinda stopped paying attention to A-Spec. Yup, I miss those XP boosts...

Seeing the servers re-open? Hmm I don't think they will do that. I've had games I liked and when the devs decided to close the servers it was for good. Sorry about that.  :unsure:

PS2 was perhaps NFS but i think PS3 is GT5

Only reason why Gran Turismo 5 might have sell more on ps3 is because its an exclusive and it has a 3years period before the new game comes out.

I think GT5 is the world most purchase racing game.

Anyway you should edit the OP and put "on ps3" so it's much more accurate Edited by Winston

You keep comparing one game to a whole series. They're not comparable that way.

 

OP: No GT5 server is not opening ever again. GT6 will probably shut down when GT7 comes out as well in case you need some warning.

No if you only read the whole post I did.. I said: NFS Most Wanted sold 16mln units. It's a game not a series. The comparation is: Gran Turismo 5 (10mln) and NFS Most Wanted (16mln). Enough? Edited by Winston
