Sad news today as Sony has announced, though rather discreetly, that three PS3 games will be losing their online functionality next month.
Warhawk, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and Twisted Metal will no longer be playable online from October 25th, according to the store pages for the respective games. That was the announcement; a small footnote on each game’s product page.
It’s a shame but it’s understandable, though Warhawk will suffer more than the others as it’s a predominantly online game. PlayStation All-Stars and Twisted Metal are still playable offline with single player and local multiplayer, so they’re not completely dead.
I think it’s time we just accepted that the older games from previous generations just won’t be the same and they will all eventually die off.
You’ve got just under a month to enjoy these games to their fullest (and sweep up those precious online trophies!) so hop to it and enjoy them while they last.
