    In the article, for GT6:
    Most importantly, though, no trophies will be affected by the closure.

    Wow nice, comprehensive article! Such a shame about all of these - well a lot of them are unsurprising. Killzone 2 and 3 are very old and even the PS4 sequel is getting old, and Wipeout PS3 and Vita were old and battered even before they made them completely obsolete with a 4K/VR current gen combination port. GT6 is a lot newer but it's PS3 and GT Sport is in the spotlight now so it's not unreasonable.
    Anyway better start thinking about finishing 2048 before it's too late...

    Damn I was going thinking about going for the platinum in dcuo
  • Posted on 03 January 18 at 21:04
    So, which Platinum trophies will be impossible to get?
  • Posted on 03 January 18 at 21:23
    Everything but GT6, EyePet & Friends, Gravity Rush 2 and Demon's Souls.
    Ace Combat Infinity does not have a Platinum, but will be Discontinued entirely.

    You forgot Knack, looks like no trophies were affected for it. Thanks for answering, though.

    ...Knack was for the companion app, not the game. But, yes, it doesn't have an impact on the trophies.

    I wonder if it's even possible for me to find people for the 8 player trophy in WipeoutHD?
    Pretend inferiority and encourage their arrogance.

    Ye Im looking to put boosting group together Wipeout 2048 in near future, maybe next week on PSNprofiles......hoping to get 8 PPL together so would NT have to deal with random players

    Also while these might Be old, many Xbox 360 games ( Gears 1, Forza2, Halo3) are Even older (over 10 years,) and all their servers are still Running.....

    Thankfully I knocked out the Killzone 2&3 multiplayer 3 years ago as I knew the day would come eventually.
    I also played Wipeout 2048 late last year so have the majority of that done now too, although now I need to make the decision whether or not to try complete the multiplayer campaign...I'm probably more than halfway but the thought of playing more of it online turns me cold.
    So looks like Wipeout HD is the only title that will affect me really now - I'm not fussed if I don't get a couple of the online trophies since I will never platinum the game anyway, but will probably look to get a handful of them in Feb when I'll have more time.

    The Uncharted series worries me now also - I haven't played an Uncharted game but have been planning to, so maybe I'd better look at the multiplayer trophies in that pretty shorty, just in case...
    Hope for the best but expect the worst.

    I'm currently trying to get into a group for getting WipEout 2048 done (missing some single nodes from Online Campaign 11 and all of them from Campaign 18 onwards) and simultanousely playing the hell out of Ace Combat Infinity to get this lone gold trophy there into the earned coloumn before it's too late!

    Uncharted has me worrying now as well... :/

    Regarding Wipeout:
    HD online trophies are pretty easy to get, you can boost most with one friend and even then doesn't take much time. The 8 player trophy may seem difficult, but set up game sessions here on TT and ask your friends to join, I'm sure you won't have too much trouble. I helped a friend to complete his group just the other day, though I got the trophy back in 2010.

    2048 on the other hand is a pain, you need minimum 4 players to get an event going and I don't think there are any private lobbies. Since the servers may get crowded again you'd probably need 8 people to hold down a full lobby, but the problem with that is the absurd number of 'finish 1st' requirements or 'hit two specific players' etc. Plus you need to complete over 200 nodes. It's as time consuming as it is extraordinarily dull...

    All of those 360 games you mentioned don't run on servers, they are peer-to-peer. That's why they still work. Same for other older games from back then like GRAW and Saints Row.

    This news for the most part doesn't affect me. I have the online Trophies in Wipeout HD already and I can get the Platinum in GT6 (which I'm working on now). I am however concerned about Wipeout 2048. I always wanted a Vita but every time I was going to get one, something else got in the way and prevented it. I still want one now but I'm not so sure I will be able to get one and the game, let alone actually get started on the online, in time. Especially when you can no longer buy them brand new here in Australia (seemingly). So unless I can find a Vita for a good price in the near future, I'm probably going to miss out on this Platinum. Oh well, can't have them all and obviously I have had plenty of time to get a Vita so in a way it is my own fault, but one can only buy so much as well. Might just be one of those things, unfortunately.
