wasnt it just a few months ago that sony were bragging about how many people play GT5 online? this is a dickish move to try make people move to GT6

It's a shame they are closing Resistance 2's online modes. I really enjoyed playing the 8-player co-op mode on there.

Damn, that sucks for the people still playing GT5. I would have thought the servers would be up for at least 2 more years. I wonder if GT6 will be on sale the week GT5's servers are shut down lol

Honestly surprised that RFoM still had online, Resistance 2 multi was a bit dying off about a year ago already, Resistance 3 multi didn't take off at all I think, still a shame.



So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

Wow shutting down GT5 is so dumb. Also the Resistance games, but GT5 is especially dumb.

40 dollars at gamestop on the 26. Day after christmas sale. 



Damn they should keep 1st party PS3 games online for a while longer... that's pretty lame.
