Pacific Rift online only until October 1st!?

20 Replies 1,216 Views Created 29-06-2012

Just read this as an announcement on the US Forum:

I always wanted to have announcements of the online status - but I thought of maintenance, not of terminating it! You can't mean it! Why my favorite game???

 

Ankündigung: MotorStorm® Pacific Rift Online Services

On October 1, 2012 Sony Computer Entertainment America will terminate the online service for the following PlayStation®3 software title: MotorStorm® Pacific Rift

Hi joban123,

 

I can confirm that this is the case, and online play features for the titles MotorStorm: Pacific Rift and MotorStorm: Arctic Edge will be discontinued as of the 1st of October 2012.

wha,no,wait,huh,dauwww :(

but why.:xCry:

the only good thing i can think about is that EVO will focus more on the Apocalypse Servers :/

but unfortunetly i don't think that is gonna happen.:Stupid:

1 thing i'd like to know is if it is SONY or EVO who wants it shutdown.

i'm losing faith in EVO / SONY :smileysad:

What a load of *****.

 

If Evo/Sony no longer want to provide online access to the game then we should be able to take it over and keep it online ourselves.

 

How much can it cost to keep this small server going?

 

Having been lied to over the past month by sony support saying the game isnt coming down, I'm decidely unhappy.

If Evo don't want to host it, maybe someone else can?

I'd definitely volunteer to do that, but given the customer interaction we had in the past I don't think that will happen.

There's no point in trying. It happens almost always when servers are being closed. Most dedicated fans get together, cry for help and say they'll pay for servers/host it themselves. I don't think it ever worked so why should it now?

EVO cares about its games for half a year tops. I can't even play RC because of 'saving' error during the race.
We should persuade few game designing/programming/whatever students to finish their studies and go work in EVO. When they successfully infiltrate their ranks we will be in control of EVO's actions. Then and only then we can achieve something. Just imagine the possibilities: a decent game, decent server or Molotov Drago in next game.

 

Btw. Was american thread deleted?

We have people ready willng and able to host it.

We have peopke in the States talking legal action as speed weekend is still for sale. And that requires a server for correct running.

 

I also think as a last resortthey could migrate it to a playstation plus only game, that way they keep getting a few $$ fromn the game.

How much does it cost to run the server now the game ghas been developed? Stuff all.

This is possible.

its evolution that is in control of thAt! This is totally BS! i played apocolypse more a month, and its a total waste of money...

 

sony lost money on apocrap! this proves it!!! now im taking the price!! I love pacific rift, i got three of them!!

 

Its not fair that there taking the pacific rift guys out just to increase the guys on apocolypse...

 

stop focusing on apocolypse sony and evo. its crap. IF YOU TAKE THE SERVER DOWN, I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER MOTORSTORM GAME AGIAN, I WILL TELL EVERYONE NOT TO BUY ANY EVOLUTION STUDIOS PRODUCT FOR AS LONG AS I LIVE!!!!

You should buy next motorstorm if it's similar to MV/PR. If we all do they'll see that's what we want and will support it. If we don't buy it they won't make them.
If they release next MSA and we don't buy it they'll maybe try with next MV/PR.
It all depends on what game they give us next.

If they shut down the servers, will they give everyone the online trophies and the unlocks from them?

Considering the quality of the software that has been running on those servers I think it is simply a case of "mercy killing"....

I'm gutted, only just started getting into it, its an awesome game...far better than apocolypse IMHO.    Surely keeping their supporters happy should be more of a priority than the (i would imagine) small cost of keeping a relatively quiet server running?

Hey guys, I decided to make a video to homage Motorstorm Pacific Rift Online. In my opinion, Pacific Rift in the real definition o hardcore brutal off-road racing and by far the best in the Motorstorm serie.

I was just checking the store yesterday and they still sell the Speed pack and the Adrenaline pack which will become useless in a week.

 

Sony = Scammers

I asked them about it when they first announced the 'retirement' of the servers, all DLC trophies become un-obtainable when the servers go off and the DLC won't be free like I asked. I would imagine the DLC will stay at the current price forever more, even though they have cut 70% of the usage you would normally get out of it.
