Classic LittleBigPlanet servers are to be shut down permanently following hacks. Sony’s drastic move comes after months of downtime for the older games.
It was fun while it lasted. And some of the user created stuff was a blast to play with.
Whaaa-? That's crazy. Didn't expect it to be permanently shut down...
It's still up on PS4, they just shut down the PS3 end because hackers on PS3 can't be stopped and go on the game making announcements that can't be avoided without having to go back to all the old game codes and updating to remove the feature etc. It's one of those sad and garbage things where hackers ruined a good thing. I'm mostly sad about the Vita, I'm not sure if I have my music stages saved to my Vita, meaning they're gone forever if I didn't save them back to it. They were good too :(
Have to say I expected them to be permanently shut down problem would be in the underlying server architecture and possibly something like a depricated authentication protocol which has to be replaced that the PS3, PSP and vita can't support which is why they can't be securely restored on those consoles but the PS4 does support it.so lbp3 was restored on that. Given the attackers were able to breach the server there was obviously a fear of lateral movement once inside their servers so I can't blame them for this and it makes sense despite the huge blow to the community millions of hours spent building that community. Despite this blow I believe the millions of creations are going to be available via lbp3 and it's capability of backwards compatibility with user generated content so that's something to be thankful for still not a huge consolation to the many players who only own a older console but unfortunately that's the world we live in these games are old the older they get the more insecure the servers get which the company that make them.host them on and the more likely they need to be shut down.
Feel bad for the people who dedicated so much time into this game.
Nice edit to your troll comment.
I reread the article, and changed it, to be as honest on the topic as possible. Let's be real, it was an easy reaction to have considering their actions of late.
He's been on a roll and it's comical 😁
This guy love stealth troll on playstation article as I see the pattern, but he doesn't want to admit that he's a MS fanboy.
We SEE you Ted! 👀
I am also sorry people enjoyed the online aspects of the game?

Why would anyone disagree with your statement? I don't get get it.
@mikey15 Actually my comment was for TheRealTedCruz. There is absolutely no good reason for all those disagree votes.

He was stealth trolling stating all LBP contributors wasted their time making levels for LBP...

Understandable they had to do this better to be safe then sorry. I just wish those right wing racists that hacked the servers and started posting homophobic slurs would get want they deserve a good few decades in prison.
That's the thing I guess if it wasn't them it would just be someone else and we would still be in this position regardless of their intent.
What are you going on about?
The attackers breached and manipulated the servers to place abusive messages all over the game ccontent https://www.ruetir.com/2021...
Oh damn all 3 games gotta be shut down that's crazy. Could there not be a way to allow downloads of levels? Probably save files will be shared online if possible
Anything you had saved in create is available, otherwise you can only access the stages on PS4 unfortunately
Oh I totally missed the parentheses that said PS3. The PS3 makes sense since it's been hacked for years now. Perhaps they'll release all games on PS5 sometime this gen
There will be fan servers. So don't yall worry.
The levels are still playable in lbp3 on ps4. Those servers aren't going down Only problem is, it's lbp3
to be fair, while LBP3 wasn't the best one. For playing online stages it should be the one you play as it has the most stages and such. Though they need to add Pro or PS5 support to update the res.

Now what will Chris Chan play after he’s acquitted?
Hackers did what now? Oh man. Who picks on LBP? Like really wtf. Edit: thank goodness all 10 million levels will still be accessible through the LBP3 hub on PS4. Bit of a bullet dodged there even though it blows for the PS3.
I was honestly a bit surprised the PS3 servers were still a thing.
Didn't this game launch in 2008
Father__Merrin8h ago Didn't this game launch in 2008*** LBP 3 was 2014, on PS 3 and 4.
I really wanted to play this online one last time, great memories with my friends on this and I can vividly remember a lot of the online levels created. And of course since the start of the year when I felt like playing it again, the servers were down due to these attacks, now it's gone for good. Gutted.
If you have a PS4, you should be able to access the online levels through LBP3.
This does suck but they can't keep these services online forever. I didn't know all of them were still online. Maybe the last couple, but damn that's a long time.
Seems rather like they just used the hack situation as an excuse to finally shut down old PS3 servers. I get why some are salty. At the same time though they had to shut them down eventually.
It’s been shut down for months now. For the past year they’ve been going up only to be taken down a week later. Fortunately I got all the online trophies completed in lbp2 so I can still 100% the game. I’ll likely be one of the last in the world to do so
