GameSpy Shutdown - May 31st, 2014
« on: May 20, 2014, 02:51:48 PM »
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...own-next-month (effective May 31st)

This will affect:

1. Nintendo Wii and DS - shut down effectively until an update or permanently
2. PC - some games moving to Steam, others gone forever.
3. PS3 - my money is on PS3 requiring PS Plus - expect some type of announcement on that in the near future.

Thoughts?

Unless a game was considered only good for online gameplay, it won't affect me any.
The only thing I played online back then was Smash, but it was laggy and boring.
It just felt like I was fighting computers, not online players.

Your link doesn't work. Here is a working link.

Also this doesn't affect the PS3 as a service at all. There are only a handful of PS3 games that opted to go through Gamespy. Most publishers who are affected have either been giving a heads up notice, or are transfering their online services over so as to be unaffected.

Augustglass, typically it's bad form to post in a thread that is almost a year old, especially with no real information or opinions to add to it. Please be more mindful of the age of threads next time.
Eeyup.
