Why even close them so soon in the first place?

PhantomS42312d ago

Server population was probably very low and the cost of keeping them up and maintained costs a lot.

It is possible to have separate applications or even virtual machines that are associated with different games.

A physical machine does have costs associated with it such as floor space, heating, cooling, software and hardware maintenance just to name a few. However, applications and virtual machines don't have a physical cost although they do require software maintence, overall they are fairly cheap to maintain.

G00gle pay 85$ per hour my last pay check was $8500 operating a hundred hours per week on-line. My younger brother friend has been averaging 12k for months currently and he's employed concerning twenty two hours per week. I can’t believe however simple it had been once i attempted it out. this is often what I do.

chris235312d ago

because not many people liked the game?

zeuanimals312d ago

It reviewed well and I haven't heard from one person who's played it that they didn't like the game. Sony just didn't push this game at all and so it sold poorly.

BlaqMagiq1311d ago

The game got great reviews so that's a lie.

Obscure_Observer312d ago

Gamers pay for PSN and Sony shuts down servers for their full priced first party games in less than a year? Unacceptable.

travestyj312d ago (Edited 312d ago )

PS+ isn't needed for GR2 so none of the money goes to maintaining the servers. The online stuff is barely anything, just a little extra collectible stuff.

Spoken like someone who doesn’t have any clue of this game

The servers are open for pictures only basically. You can do a mini treasure hunt mini game where you give others hints by taking pictures to give hints and you're rewarded dusty tokens. It's only used to get dusty coins. Otherwise it's useless. Also I have like 15k dusty coins in it now lol. Even more it's a waste of money to keep up even at request because if they remove it they can adjust getting dusty coins to something alot easier. If you didn't have the game day one it's damn near impossible to get them without grinding 10 to 15 coins per hunt even worse you only get a certain amount for a certain amount of time.

Poor sales. Which is a shame. To me, this was my fav ps4 game of 2017. Heck, probably of all time and it didn't sell.

Teflon02305d ago

right now the only games this gen I like more sadly released about the same time otherwise it would be the same for me. Only 2 games I can say liked more this gen was Nier Automata and Persona 5. But not by much honestly lol

I still need to play this game... Goddamn backlog!

Kurisu312d ago

I bought it a week or two ago in a 2 for £25 PSN sale. Got it along with Wipeout Omega Collection. Haven't started it yet either!

Septic312d ago

Same. Enjoyed the demo. Got Persona next though

DarXyde312d ago


I'll take it. Thank you, Sony.

Outlawzz312d ago

Great plenty of time now. Gotta pick this up loved the first one

zeuanimals312d ago

The online functionality doesn't really add anything, just some collectibles and some small community stuff like sharing pictures and hunting for "treasure" using said pictures.

sigrid312d ago

It's so unfortunate they even want to shut them down. The treasure hunts and photo sharing is really fun. It's an awesome non-competitive non-violent multiplayer system which is so very rare. And the best part is you don't even need PSN to do it.

Gravity Rush 2 is such a great game the art and music are amazing especially the music which isn't that cheesy Hollywood knock off crap that's a dime a dozen that could be swapped between any number of a hundred games and no one would even notice.

I just hope they continue making Gravity Rush games, the character Kat and the stories are just uplifting and wonderful.

AspiringProGenji312d ago

What’s with the disagrees? This game was indeed great

ThatGuyDart312d ago

It's one of the most underrated and underappreciated Sony ips that they have. There is an anime short on YouTube that ties the first game to the second game. It was so unbelievably well done that people were begging Sony to make it a full on anime, which would be VERY possible for Sony to do since they own Funimation.

If Sony actually invested some time and money in Gravity Rush, it could be much more than it currently is.

zeuanimals312d ago

Funimation doesn't really make its own anime, though. They basically only distribute anime in the US. But with Sony's acquisition, maybe they'll change it up? I doubt it since Funimation is an American based company and I don't know where they'd start. Are they gonna start up a studio in their own state of Texas? Or are they gonna contract studios in Japan/South Korea? Maybe start a studio in Japan with their connections to previous artists and writers and Sony's own connections?

But I agree, GR has a ton of potential and it's sad that this is gonna be the last we likely see of it.

sigrid311d ago (Edited 311d ago )

They actually invested a lot into it. There were TV ads in both the west and Japan they also did free DLC for the game including story and costume. They really wanted this game to be a hit.

Teflon02306d ago

The games great but the features were pointless imo and that's coming from someone who says that's a top 5 game of the year for me

sigrid306d ago

I just have to disagree, I really enjoy the treasure hunts and photo sharing, it's great when you find someones photo in game. The game will still be fun with out them but it was still a great addition that adds a lot to the experience for me.

Teflon02305d ago

how so? You enjoy finding peoples photos in the exact spot they took them? They're low quality pictures and Everyone takes photos in the same locations I've only ran into like 10 surprising locations for photos like one mid freefalling into the slums. It was just a tedious add-on if like me you're only in that for the dusty coins. I only wanted the costumes otherwise I would have said screw that stuff. The treasure hunt was cool and fun the first 3 or 4 times but the second you do any in Lei Elgona you realize how annoying and worthless they are without grinding out costumes. But I'll say it's better than having to buy them with cash. The game really gave a classic game feel where you knew everything was in it
