Wow! Only one year after the release... :(

 

Took the words right out of my mouth! Well... I better get cracking and start playing this again. Wanna get everything before they shut it down.

Oh no! I wasn't planning to get this yet. Does it affect the trophies?

According to the guide on PST, all trophies are offline. Think you're good.

Nope, only if you want to get all costumes for Kat.

Are any of the costumes worth getting for trophy purposes? Not that it’ll make much difference as I don’t have Gravity Rush 2 yet and the first is still on my backlog.

Wow, that is really fast. I'm glad it doesn't effect trophies, but still, what the hell? Paying for online, now, I thought this kind of thing would be less of an issue. And how can games that are 10+ years old keep their shit running, but others can't?

Thanks for heads up, finally got a motivation to move my lazy ass and start playing that game.

Honestly wasn't aware there even was an MP in this, guess it's just such an out of place idea that I would have avoided it at all costs anyway.

 

Even still, why bother if you're barely gonna give it a year? Pathetic really.

I am planning to get Gravity Rush 2 at some point since I enjoyed the first one. Glad it doesn't void the Plat but it still sucks none the less. But let's be honest this game never needed MP in the first place.

Well at least we have free online play and Plus subs aren't getting bumped up every six months.

 

Oh wait...

 

Disgraceful, Sony. Disgraceful.

...and out of the backlog it goes I guess.

 

It's okay though cos I have the Amazon preorder White Kat and 2B costumes; the only ones I'll ever use, but still a shame.

No, costumes are just for butt aesthetic purposes =)

what a joke.
They did a big fuss just to announce this game, but they will be ending the online services just a little after.
Seriously, what is Sony thinking? I thought they would love and cherish their beautiful PS4 but...
I was wrong. Everyday they make me more and more sick.

I'm tempted to get this game now so I don't miss out on the costumes, but I don't want to pay full price for a game that should have been on the vita... I'm conflicted.

I'm hoping someone has it on sale for Black Friday. Will spend December playing it, if so. :P

I feel like this is really more of a studio Japan decisions than a sony one, I really don't think ps plus sales or online fees factored into it at all. Like you all said, the game never really needed multiplayer which probably makes it a pain for studio japan to keep up something barely used. Kinda wish they would do something decent and jut give everyone the costumes for free, though.

I platted that game recently, and over the course of 50ish hours I never once understood why that online stuff was in there to begin with.

 

It's just a bunch of silly nonsense cluttering up the screen with notifications - there is, as far as I could tell - no reason whatsoever to engage with it (whether you care about trophies or not).

 

I suspect the game will be better without it.

(Though I'd caution the folks saying that they were planning to play it as they liked the first one - Tread carefully. That's why I played it, and it is a dramatic step down in fun from the first game, which I considered one of the great games of the vita and a heck of a good PS4 remaster.)

This post can be framed and put on the pedestal.

Perfectly pointed.

 

And so much this.

I mean let's face it, the only costume you need for Kat is 2B's, so this isn't a big deal. :P Still, I'll try and get to this game before the online service goes down. I would like to see what the other costumes look like at least.
