actually its poosible one day they will do it,, look at microsoft there was a day where they shut down xbox live support for the origional xbox, so there is really no reason why sony wouldnt do the same for the ps3

Yes, but I do think that it is more than reasonable to expect that it will be concurrent with the dropping of support for PS3 hardware, which likely to be 12 years or more (which, Math fans, is 2018 or better).  If we Follow precedent, that means that it could be AFTER 2023 until we have to worry about this.

 

That blows my mind.  I am a proud Sony adoptee, let me tell you.

Ok so Im not sure about ps3 but ive been a part of xbox for nearly 12 years (I was recently banned till the year 9999 for inpersonating an xbox live employee...which I didnt I just told an enforcement member that I had a buddy who was in the enforcement team and I wasnt lying when I tried to apeal my posts were screened and I didnt get a fair apeal so microsoft is BS and I lost everything I workes for I will NEVER go back) but anyway. ... when they shut down the original servers, they officially went down in 2010 and unofficially about six months later because people continued playing halo and actually the makers of REDvsBLUE were the last guys playing before they ever made the series. It was down to the last two guys and they left theyre games on for days until one of theyre xbox froze lol. So the servers probably work the same. The server will stay up until the last person logs off. So in like ten years or who knows.

Whenever Sony decides to shown down PSN. But I don't they would, I could see game companies shutting down servers for older games like Socom Confrontation and Socom 4 or Ghostbusters cause it didn't have alot of online activity.

Hope they don't shut the servers I still think it's a shame you need playstation plus to play online on ps4 . I see the ps4 as another advanced ps3 for playstation plus users . I'll adapt to plus later sure but I'm not a big fan of subscriptions 50 for plus a year that's fair yes then theirs buying the console the games . It would be mutch more relaxing if psn was free on the new ps4 .
