SCEA to end online service for older titles

Support for selected online PS2 and PSP games to finish in June as demand falls

SCEA has announced that it will be shutting down the servers for a number of its older online titles for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable platforms.

According to dbTechno the online games will end on June 30 this year, and while most games will still be playable offline, two of the titles which only have online modes will become unplayable.

The closure of online play servers for older titles is a normal process, and is only usually applied to games which have a very low, or no, demand.

The full list of titles for which servers will be closed is as follows:

PlayStation 2 games

  • Amplitude
