Server Closure Bad Move?

52 posts in this topic

I barely played TLOU back in 2013 but had no interest and giving up on it. Haven't bought the remastered version. I guess it's out of my element.

Seems silly when TLOU is all about the single player story- multiplayer isn't even a big component. Sure, it prevents you getting the PS3 plat, but the story is what you play for (in my opinion at least, I wasn't a huge fan of the multiplayer). Plus, as mentioned if you want the plat, the remaster is available on PS4.

I was just wondering if you think they should have kept the servers active because the release of the second game would generate a lot more sales for the first. I know the PS4 version is still active but I'd rather play the original than the remaster. Yes I'm a complete weirdo... I admit that! 😜 and I do have the PS4 version for free with PSPlus 😉

PS3 multiplayer was very active when they shut it, for shame, I liked playing the Survivors mode.

So because they closed the ps3 servers, while the ps4 ones are still up, you aren't going to play the series? The stupidity in this reasoning is... incomprehensible. You could still buy it on ps3 and play it on an alt since you really want to play the original version. If not you had 6 freakin years to play it before the online closed.

I mean you only had 6 years to finish it.  I highly doubt they're sitting around having  conference about how they screwed up because HOGIE838IRE won't play TLOU2 because they shut down servers of a 6 plus year old game.  One of the best games of all time imo i don't see how they care what you think.  Gaming companies don't cater to desires of trophy hunters because trophy hunters are only a small fraction of gamers.  Sony caters to us because we typically buy 50 games to a non trophy hunters 5.  Trophy hunting benefits Sony much more than an individual gaming company,  Unless your business is selling trash game solely for easy platinum like ratalaka.

You just want to platinum the PS3 version because it is an UR plat unlike the PS4 version, right?

Of course I would like to have gotten the platinum to the original on ps3 but its also still obtainable on ps4 so Im planning on doing it there anyway. I heard the remaster was better though so why would you have wanted to play the original instead? Get the plat for the ps4! At least you can still get that one.

6 years is enough, but still too early. 

You got to remember a lot of us have lives and cant trophy hunt like a dedicated trophy hunter. Also you got to consider the  backlogs on other games. And no one expected TLOU to be closed down that soon since they had Uncharted 2's servers up for 10 years. 

 

I finally finished my backlogs and started on TLOU in Aug 2019 and couldnt finish it by Sep lol... Oh well. 

 

My other account I just use to play games, but this account is for 100% completion.

You’re all focusing too much on my idiosynracy’s 😜 I just think they should have left the servers up another year 🙄

So, you'll play these remasters:

 

Assassin's Creed II

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood

Ghostbusters: The Video Game

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
Resident Evil 4

Uncharted 

Uncharted 2

Uncharted 3

 

Man!!! Poor poor TLoU.

All game Devs should bring their  MP servers back. There are lots of players who would love to get certain games 100%. It’s a shame. It doesn’t cost them anything. Lots of gamers hurt when they can’t 100% because of un obtainable trophies.

At first you claim it was a bad move, then laugh off all arguments with your "idiosyncrasies"... you do realize that most people do not care about platinum trophies or 100% a game all that much, and those who do don't really care if its the remaster or the original one?

 

So, rethink your initial question. Does it make any sense to keep the servers running for a minuscule amount of players? I mean, clearly they've done the math and no, it doesn't make any sense.
