Demon's Souls Going Offline End Of May

GameInformer- After numerous extensions, ATLUS confirmed it will finally turn off the North American servers for Demon's Souls on May 31, 2012.

The servers will officially turn off at 11:59 PM PST. ATLUS says the single-player portion of the game will remain unaffected. The company will have two separate World Tendency events next month, May 1-15 and May 16-31, based on fan voting.

ATLUS encourages all players to sign on May 31 one last time before saying goodbye. (Demon's Souls, PS3)

Well, I'm surprised it lasted this long... they said they were shutting the servers down a year ago, but kept 'em going after people showed extreme support for the game. I wish they would add a pause feature since the game won't be persistent online anymore... sometimes a gamer has to take a dump... ya know?

@silentNegotiator......If I had to choose I would pick Dark souls over Demons. Mostly because of the world.

This is sad though. I will have to play this game again before it goes off.

Farewell Demon's Souls. You are my favorite game of this generation. Dark Souls was a close second, but didn't have the oppressive atmosphere you had.
Captain Qwark 9  +   819d ago
wasnt nearly as hard either. having said that though i preferred dark souls becuase of the world lol. either way, hands down the two best games this gen.
MysticStrummer  +   819d ago
Yeah I loved the world of Dark Souls also. Both are definitely games I wish other devs would copy some ideas from, particularly the online play. Demon's Souls just wins by a slight margin for me, mainly because it kept me more consistently nervous while playing. lol Just noticed I lost another bubble. What will I do??? xD
Captain Qwark 9  +   819d ago
agreed mystic

i wish devs would copy the death penalty though. i miss the challenge games used to provide for me. it meant something to me when i beat a game back in the day, now anybody can as long as they have time, little to no skill required

Good night sweet Prince.
May the fun generated from your sadistic pleasure continue to freeze my blood as I go to sleep,
Have me double take in fear whenever any sound in real life is similar to a player invasion,
Always wearing metal pants at fears of fighting a boss called the Penetrator,
And have us forever remember the quintessential importance of having a well-timed roll.
May Satan continue to run your servers in hell....

I will now listen to this song as a dirge, the only song you gave that gave me some faint presence of "safety"....

I can never forget that song. Or any track in Demon's Souls really. Best game of the gen is not a stretch. i personally enjoyed it so much more than Dark Souls, even though I love Dark Souls.

My favorite track in the game is this.

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Most epic track in the game and in the few seconds it plays you learn so much about the game and its world.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   819d ago
It's actually my ringtone now, I just love the feeling of despair the music and the fight provided. After killing her, it really made me ask myself did I do the right thing? Did I really deserve to destroy the "peaceful" reality she created in this world? I know it was just a game but very few games I played had me questioning myself even after the power is switched off.

A very powerful moment in Demon Souls indeed. You sir have my bubbles for having a keen eye in music my friend......
Moncole  +   819d ago
They are probably shutting it because not enough people play online and there is Dark Souls
catfrog  +   819d ago
or because too many people play it and they want them to buy their new game
FriedGoat  +   819d ago
Atlus don't publish dark souls, Namco Bandai do.
ginganinja  +   818d ago
or because it costs money to maintain the servers and with no new players they aren't getting enough to keep them going.
snipes101  +   818d ago
@ginganinja...^^^^^
Most logical answer. Why spend money on server maintenance when you could spend that on development costs for a new game?

Ch1d0r1  +   818d ago
At least we can all agree that Dark Souls and Demon's Souls is > Dead Souls...

:(

This game really outworked any console rpg this gen. It was an awesome experience getting invaded each time, heart pumping when invaded, not knowing if your were going to get owned and lose all your souls, after a while trolling the new players, also trolling the bosses with other players. Ahh what a bad ass game. Good Bye Demons Souls.
roadkillers  +   819d ago
I'm going to log onto demon soul's and stay on until I get booted!
Luc20  +   819d ago
Going to play it again then. This is the only game this gen Ive played for over 500h
Myst  +   819d ago
Well then I guess I will go through Demon's Souls one more time before it gets set to rest.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   819d ago
I played quite a bit of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls before I just stopped playing them. Not a lot of actual fun to be had. :/ 3D Dot Game Heroes was fun. These two were just...mildly entertaining if you're a sadist.
DragonKnight  +   819d ago
Wow, do you have it all wrong or what. 3D Dot Game Heroes was fun to you? Well ok that's your opinion but you're in the extreme minority on that one when you compare it to these 2 games. These two games are of the sort that redefine games, 3D Dot heroes is the Lego Legend of Zelda game of this gen.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   818d ago
Legend of Zelda + Lego = BAD?!?!?!?!

That's literally the coolest combo I can think of... What are you smoking?

Regent_of_the_Mask  +   819d ago
If they're taking it offline then they need to announce Demon's Souls 2 to replace it. Dark Souls was garbage and it wasn't even half as good as Demon's Souls so that won't cut it.
Hicken  +   818d ago
What's with pretty much every comment you make being so overwhelmingly and unnecessarily negative? While it's the general consensus that Demon's Souls is the better game, VERY FEW people say that Dark Souls sucked(by the way, it didn't).

And taking the servers offline in no way forces or implies that they should be announcing something to replace it. That doesn't even make sense.
Ch1d0r1  +   818d ago
The only issue Dark Souls has is the damn back stab glitch. Everything else outdoes Demons Souls. They did a great job of removing the world tendency and replacing it with a system more accessible to all. Who the hell wants to die 7 times in a row to reach black world tendency, i hated doing that each play-through, just to get all the good loot.
VirtualSamadhi  +   818d ago
If Demon's Souls had an interconnected world and save points before bosses so I didn't have to come back and kill an unnecessary amount of trash enemies, I'd agree.

Damn, I've heard great things about the online aspect in Demon's Souls but I still haven't gotten around to playing it. I would try to play it before the servers go down but I don't play many RPGs so it might be too hard for me.
-MD-  +   818d ago
I'm in the same boat, I've been looking at buying a copy on amazon used or something on the cheap but I'm not really informed as to what the game will play like when the servers go offline.

same here, never had the chance to play it and now it's going offline,, too bad for us people who didn't have the chance to experience it

It had a good run, besides its not like the series is over, they are just making way for the next installments :)

Ill never forget the fun i had getting the platinum for demon souls. Ill enjoy playing it one last time online in may. :D
