Online Servers for MAG, SOCOM 4, SOCOM Confrontation Turn off January 28th, 2014

Hopefully you weren’t planning on waiting much longer to play MAG, SOCOM 4, or SOCOM Confrontation online as Sony has announced that the servers for all three titles will be shut off on January 28th, 2014.

While that is definitely more than enough warning for everyone to get their final fill of these titles before you can’t play them online anymore, it always sucks when servers shut down for any game. On the brightside, these games are cheap right now from EB Games in Canada and GameStop USA (if you can find them used), as you’ll see below:

MAG

SOCOM Confrontation

SOCOM 4

That's a shame. I look forward to the angry threads both now, and in January.

It's still possible to save these games if people are willing to jump on and PLAY THEM.

Demon souls is a great example.

Never played any of those games. Still though it's a shame when servers shut down, I imagine the online trophies (If there are any) will be impossible to get after the servers go down.

Won't be saved. I enjoyed Socom CA and under. Funny how Socom 4 is shutting down faster than the PS2 versions.
It'd be nice to have games with LAN again, doesn't require internet, great when you get together with friends and svers are no longer running.

Noooooooooooo... Not MAG, Smiley Sad 

 

It's the only FPS that I actually like, & I play it all the time... 

 

My Game is in a Box some where, & I can't get to it... 

 

I've been waiting for so long to Play it, & now it's being shut down... 

 

And why would anyone want to buy a Game that is being shut down? 

$5 doesn't mean anything if you only have till February to Play it, @_@ 

 

Are they nutz... MAG is the best FPS, it's also the only Game I actually use my Move Controller on... 

This really sux... I paid a lot for that Controller, & now the only Game I use with it is being Shut Down... 

 

Thanks a lot Sony... Now my Move Controller is utterly useless, Smiley Sad

I'm pretty sure their not going to make a MAG 2, if they do, i'm sure it won't be on PS3... 

 

& i'm pretty sure they'll ruin it if they do... 

 

Shutting MAG down will deffinately cut my PS3 Gamming down a bit, ~_~ 

 

If I ever get back on HOME, i'll be on HOME way more now that MAG is gone, @_@ 

 

Yes, I play other Games, too, but I mostly play MAG, more then anything... 

 

Because of how well it was made, ~_~

So basically, if turns MAG into a worthless pile of matter in the shape of a video game?
