It's going to get lonely soon

Sony has a Christmas present for all Gran Turismo 5 and Resistance fans out there, on the 20th of May next year the servers for Gran Turismo 5 are being shut down and all online functionality will be removed from the title.

Resistance isn’t as lucky with the servers for all three of their games being killed on the 28th March and as with GT5 that means you can no longer play online.

However it gets worse. For the fans of MAG and SOCOM your games will become totally useless on the 28th of January 2014 when their servers are shut down as they don’t have a single player mode at all.

The full list of titles being killed can be found on the official PlayStation blog

Honestly I’m quite surprised at GT5, it took forever to make and as soon as GT6 lands they announce they are turning GT5 off, that doesn’t sound like a company that is in it for the gamers as they are constantly saying at the moment.
