LittleBigPlanet's online services are being shut down in Japan

Sony has announced that in Japan, all services for the series, which includes every game (even the portable editions and Karting), will be entirely shut down on July 31, 2016. Of course it will still be playable, and you can re-download all your DLC from Sony's servers directly, but online play and the server browser will be out. There hasn't been an announcement yet for the rest of the world, but I wouldn't be surprised to see services wind down by the end of the year.

Very sad. Love the franchise, even if the 3rd one wasn't great.

It was never a big success in Japan, almost nobody there will care.

Pitty... I hope that in the west they keep the servers up. Also hope for a LBP4!

One of my fav franchises period. Glad it's just fine here in U.S.

I haven't played LBP since the first one, and I can't really comment on how active LBP is in Japan but I can sure as hell tell you the Japanese players made the BEST custom levels.

That's what will happen to full games if they're only streamed through company servers.

Well, eventually all good things will come to an end.

Bye bye platinum possibility!
