Sony switching off servers for 'select' titles starting March 28

Sony is to shut down the online servers for Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2 and Resistance 3 on March 28, 2014, while from May 20 2014, Gran Turismo 5 online features will no longer be accessible. 

Other titles such as MAG and SOCOM Confrontation will also have their servers switch off.

The first Resistance game was released in 2006, with sequels following in 2008 and 2011. SOCOM Confrontation was released in March 2009, MAG in January 2010 and Gran Turismo 5 arrived in November 2010.

If you have the above games then you'll still be able to play the offline mode, excluding online-only titles MAG and SOCOM Confrontation.

What do you think of this news? Is it fair enough for Sony to switch off the servers for its older titles? It's not the only company to do so, in fact most do.

I can understand switching off the older titles but some of them are not that old like the most recent Resistance and GT5. It does depend on the amount of players online I suppose so without knowing the numbers its hard to say. It will annoy some people as I can imagine that there will still be people that play them. I know you still get quite a few people playing the original Gears of War on the 360.

Thats a bit naff, although as it is free to play online with PS3 they can get away with it. When MS decides to close down the servers it will probably affect all games. PC is becoming the best platform to keep playing the games, you can still play GTA SA and Jedi Outcast. Steam is helping keep loads of games alive, and the tech is slowing down so much now you can keep the same PC for many more years without an upgrade, and more chances of getting a new PC to replace a worn out one, than to upgrade to play the latest games.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
