Even Halo 3 is still online. Resistance 3 can't be that old. What a shame.

Jihaad, chronic inflammation via gluten, much higher levels of triglycerides, and the list goes on.

Well 7 years is a long time, I personally think servers should at least stay up for 10 years, but 7 years is a long time. -(and most of the users have most likely moved on -so there's probably only a small fraction still playing it)

Most of these game companies start shutting down servers after 3 years which is crazy, so 7 years is a pretty long time - compared to most, so I can't be mad at them.

***UPDATE** --- I thought it was just resistance 1 can't believe they will take down 2 & 3 those games have not been out that long..

I guess the player count must have been real low, seems strange to take down R2 & R3 servers too

R3's trophies aren't tied to online

SonyStyled1510d ago (Edited 1510d ago )

do it now. theres only 2 or 3 R3 online trophies and they take like an hour tops. just a trophy for reviving a coop buddy 20 times and kill 100 enemies in coop while a buddy is also shooting the same enemy.

EDIT: they may actually can be done with a second duelshock

jerethdagryphon1510d ago

resistance 3 can be done coop offline

This shit is sooo messed up. Pulling the plug on r1 r2 and r3 all at the same time. R3 still has plenty of life left in it. Sony is just being plain greedy or they are hurting for money. Game came out around the same time as gears 3 it should last as long.

First mag, and socom 4, and now this. Whats next uncharted 2 and 3.

You better not turn of uncharted 2 sony, or its steam for me.

So sad. :/ I hope we see upgraded versions some day. And a new game.

justintime571511d ago

I wonder what this means for the multiplayer trophies. I still never reached 10,000 kills in R2.

InTheZoneAC1511d ago

means you can't get those trophies anymore...and even if you didn't try there's probably 5 people playing it online anyway...at least that's how R3 was 2 years ago.

farhsa20081511d ago

I am really going to miss the online in fall of Man. But don't forget people the campaign in all 3 games games are brilliant.

TopDudeMan1511d ago

Aww, that was one of the first online multiplayer FPS games I played. I have such fond memories. It was just classic arcade-style shooting at it's finest.

Mr-Dude1511d ago

Good memories from FOM online. Played it everyday for hours.

Salooh1511d ago (Edited 1511d ago )

Same here , not a lot have that experience , it had a huge wow factor to me. I don't have that feeling a lot now. It's the first FPS that was fun to play online in that generation. It was unique and split screen was fun as hell. Then COD4 came. Really great time back then..

welly3001511d ago

How long before titanfall gets turned off :)?

gamer78041511d ago

probably when the xbox two comes out. It's a multiplayer only game, whereas resistance is single player as well.

Salooh1511d ago (Edited 1511d ago )

Why not PC 2 ?. lol /s

JoGam1511d ago

Warhawk is online only and is still playable. Why can't Titanfall do the same?

maniacmayhem1509d ago

In seven years like Resistance if lucky. By then we'll more than likely have at least two more sequels to Titanfall.
