Wipeout HD/Fury/2048 Online server shutdown - March 29, 2018

67 posts in this topic

That day is living in infamy. Killzone 2 & 3, Eyepet, and now this. This is the beginning of the end for PS3 online. If you haven't done this, hurry! The main hurdle will be completing the campaign. 

 

EDIT: Also, if you have the DLC for Fury, Stats Life trophy will be unobtainable after March 29th, 2018. The reason why? Because online races are included on the stats page. If you don't have an online race completed, you will be locked out of that trophy and a 100% completion rate.

Thanks for the heads up. 

 

A quick question, you reckon one need to set a record on every track and play every team at least once for this trophy to pop? I finished all online trophies with main campaign done, have not played dlc yet. I checked my stats, found I miss a few with a number 0, so I fulfilled them but trophy still didn't pop. I guess I will have to play all ships and set a record on all dlc tracks as well.

 

Will update once I have done.

I was just thinking about this as well.  It states in the guide that every other trophy should be completed to view this, but I don't think that is the case.

I've got this game on my PS3 thanks to cross-buy for buying the Vita version DLC, but I'm kind of on the fence whether or not to boot it up. If there's any buggy or difficult trophy related to online play then I'm out lol. I already have the Omega Collection as well as the Vita version, so this would just be something I'd do just for the sake of it :P

As mentioned above, the Stats Life trophy requires you to attain some stats through online play.

I'll try to take a screenshot of what I'm talking about -- basically it's about the 2nd or 3rd page and says Online near the top. If you don't believe me, look in Extras > Statistics.

Hi POE! We boosted 2048 together last year :D

 

FK HANS. DRINK BLEACH. 

 

For whatever reason, I had a strange premonition the whole time that in a year's time Wipeout online would be going away. 

 

Now to try to platinum HD/Fury & 2048 then do Omega Collection because I must hate myself or something.

Don't remind me! I wonder if he's still out there trying to ruin other people's boosting sessions? I never feel any pressure getting all the trophies in games, but I do like to keep the door open so to speak - which is why I hate online trophies.

Thank you for information!!!

 

Thank God I have all online trophies on HD and 100% on Fury DLC.

But 2048... have no free time to boost... it's pity...

 

Is it possible to boost 2048 without unlock anything in main game?

I only have 2 or 3 trophies in campaign, is it doable to do all online before March 29?

Yes

The online trophies tied to main trophy set requires you to finish main campaign on any difficulty to unlock skin. Then you have to find a session with total 8 players, that will do it. 

 

I'd say finish main campaign takes around 6-8 hours of gameplay, and online boosting about 2 hours + for 5 trophies. Totally doable!

 I am in the same bar as you, I'd assume we are safe as long as you done have any numbers tied to online as 0. (e.g. page 4-online kills)

 

but I decided to do this trophy in recent days just to make sure no more potential trouble in the future.

 

========================================

Update regarding Stats Life trophy:

 

Although I have completed online part and got online stats done but no trophy popped when I check stats. 

 

What I have done:

find the numbers with 0, and do them first ( take photo, local split-screen). Then after no 0s on any page of my stats, the trophy did not pop.

 

What I have not done yet on my stat page:

1. Use all team ships ( with loyalty to most of the teams as 0 in ship selection page when you start a track, also to be checked on page 2 of stats) ;

2. Set a record on every track  even though I have completed main campaign once (page 2 bottom, laps of some of the tracks are N/A  which means 0 essentially);

3. Arcade Perfect! (page 1 -  I never did this mode...so all tracks were grey coloured)

 

================================================

Update: 

1. I started DLC tracks with all the teams I never used before, currently I have fulfilled number 1 criterion from above as well as number 2 (just use Racebox then Time Trial for any base game tracks you may need. play 1 lap then quit for quick process. As for DLC tracks then play dlc modes like Detonator and finish one lap to set record on any map you need).

2. I also have 2 of 16 arcade perfect races making there is one track changed to blue colour, which I don't think it's necessary for this Stats Life trophy. (But doing just 1 win for this is not hard at all I did both on my first try with 2nd controller method mentioned in the trophy guide on the other site.)

 

In conclusion (confirmed):

Apart from ONLINE related stats, you will need to do the first 2 things listed above to make this trophy pop. Refer to pictures where I got my Stats Life trophy!

Hope this helps!

=========================

 

Just to clarify: as mentioned before you don't necessarily get the Stats Life trophy before server closure, as long as you finish online part and have your save file  which contains the online stats securely back-up on PS+ cloud or external memory drive, then you will be good. This means people still can leave this to unlock later after server's down.

@c89-NYDCD

 

Thank you for the Infos.

 

 

I'm thinking about starting the campaign now, if it really just 6-8 hours on novice difficult.

I'm just want to finish the online Part to have the Option to plat the game later.

 

So with the Stats Life trophy,

what do you think are all the requirements, and how long does it take to get it?

God dammit, online trophies, the bane of my existence. >.< This is Resistance 2, all over again. I'll need to start up Wipeout HD ASAP. And make getting the online trophies my main priority now.

See my screenshots above. totally for main campaign on Novice and online boosting plus mop-up tracks for Stats Life took me 7:32 hours on record, and I was not fastest one.

 

Good luck to anyone who's doing this fantastic game, peace!

C89-NYDCD summed it better than I could. Thanks! Anyone starting on the game after the shutdown will not be able to 100% the game (obviously).
