Glad I finished getting the platinum a couple of weeks ago.

does this mean I can't get anymore trophies for Borderlands 1? I haven't played all the DLC yet.

Ahh, it's a meme. Good to know.

TheSaint2105d ago

Just because it's a meme doesn't mean it's not re*****d.

Looks like MK9 will be affected as well :(
OT: what about xbox 360 version is it using gamespy servers?

DVAcme2105d ago

Borderlands 2 is still going strong and had new DLC released recently, so I don't see it going offline anytime soon. Not to mention the Vita version is out soon too. Borderlands 1 had a good run, it kept strong online for the last 5 years. That's an eternity in gaming years, very impressive.

Here we go again. Pretty much every ps3 game will be going offline soon. This is what I knew was going to happen when a next gen starts. The old gen starts cutting off online content even tho some people still use it.

DVAcme2105d ago

Dude, Borderlands was online for 5 years, that's an insane amount of time. Plus, they have to free resources for other upcoming online games, you have to make the cuts somewhere. Could be worse, could be like what happened when the 360 came out, that the original XBox pretty much became dead in the water immediately.

ado9082105d ago

To be honest bro me and my gf still play this online along with the second one, I'm just a tad bit upset because this happened with resistance and I just recently got resistance 3 last year.

Yeah that all-digital-future doesn't look to great when you start to see your favorite games get taken offline.

Server browser + user servers.. I don't know why we got rid of them... I played ut99 for a decade off and on.

SonyStyled2105d ago

Gamespy runs the server. Gamespy is closing its doors thus nobody to run and monitor unless there is somebody that wants to fund the server. and considering its a 5 year old game, its not worth funding to most/all

TitanUp2105d ago

borderlands is a gamespy game, gamespy has shut down or is shutting down. this has nothing to do with current gen vs last gen resources.
