Those who want to collect all the trophies in the game will be doomed.
All signatures sucks, especially those with images in them.

That is just horrid, but that is the model of companies these days, wouldn't it be descent if they just setup a P2P server which could support a good few games and let the gamers who still play the game, host the game. one P2P server could be used by quite alot of games, all that is needed is a patch for the game.

 

At least do this for first party titles.

[ Edited ]

this is way every game with online gaming option should have lan from the start. so people can host the game them self, long after the companies that dont want to have their own p2p up and running anymore.. because 90% of the games out there is p2p now days and not dedicated servers. they only use servers for scoreboards, trophies, matchmaking etc. while you use your own bandwidth.

Re: Apperently S.C.E.E are to turn off the online servers for motorstorm pacific rift

To be fair to the publishers, games generally only have their servers completely shutdown when the game is past its generation. Pacific Rift is an old game now and I doubt it has enough people on the servers to justify the expense. Would love to see an independent P2P server to run these games into the future but this tends to present various security issues.

 

Simple answer is that if you haven't played the game to completion already you probably aren't going to.

As someone who knows very little about networking on this scale would it have not been possible for game companies to build somewhat flexible server farms where capacity is on demand and when there is low demand in one area another games multiplayer could also be run from the same server, again I have no idea how this stuff works really, also on topic, was interesting to find the other day that the Resistance Fall of Man servers are still up, and being used, played a few good games on it the other day.
