So it's kind of ironic actually, but get this: after years of not playing Resistance (at least online) I finally decided to hop back on a few days ago, thinking "boy, some 60 person battles would be fun!". Much to my disdain....I find out that a few days later, Resistance 1, 2 and even 3 are all to go offline, permanently.
Yes, for those of you who don't know, as of tomorrow, April 8th, all Resistance servers will be going offline.
Now honestly, I understand in the case of Resistance 1, maybe even Resistance 2, but Resistance 3? Honestly? That game came out barely 3 years ago and the online portion is already being nixed? Pretty disappointing in my opinion.
How do you feel about Resistance multiplayer being taken down? Do you have any good memories? Do you care, are you upset, or are you glad? Personally, it kind of annoyed me, just as I was getting back into the game, they decide to pull the rug from under me.
One day, Sony is going to realize that they are going to die by the death of 1000 cuts. They are penny wise and pound foolish. I'm not sure how much money they are actually going to save by cutting a few small servers, but whatever tiny amount they save, isn't worth the dozens of gamers they're going to piss off. I wish they would just leave their servers online for as long as the console was in production, that would be nice.
PS: If you want to relive your old memories and even see some Insomniac employees playing online, I'd go hop on Resistance 1 or 2 right now. Soon, it'll be the last chance you ever have.
