Breaking – Sony Shuts Down PlayStation Brand, Says Goodbye To Gaming

by Ernice Gilbert on April 1st, 2011, under Hot, News, Sony, Unbelievable

The unexpected has happened. What we never thought would be a story told is being written as we speak. Many will remember this day, the 1st day of April, 2011, as the saddest in gaming history. My friends, Sony’s decided to shut down all things PlayStation, as it says there’s been no profit in it, and has admitted to making a big mistake by including Blu-Ray in launch PS3s.

The company’s giving everyone 3 months to enjoy games on PSN, but has already started shutting down game studios, beginning with SOE.

Developers the world over are pleading with Sony to rethink this decision – even Microsoft’s offered the once electronic giant a loan of $2 billion, yet company exec Kaz Hirai’s said the decision is a final one.

No more PSN, no more game studios, all the PS4 talk has been rubbish, and today, my friends, the industry has lost its greatest company.

Oh. And by the way, it’s April fools.

    knew this would happen, was only inevitable!
    when you release a system at a ridiculously high price, have such a poor lineup for it, and slowly remove features PEOPLE PAID FOR!
    was only a matter of time!
    now hopefully M$ will do the same, drop the 360 that way PC games can FINALLY reach the potential they can!
    sick of all these console ports!
    O, BTW the portal 2 demo is out!
    features the first 4 levels of the game!
