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.
