    PC2 PSN servers

    Can anyone here tell me how long after PC2 came out that PC1 no longer had an online?

    Or can you still play PC1 online in multiplayer?

    I'm a little worried about PC3's new direction, it's early days yet but the new trailers look like a radical SHIFT in direction (Looks like SHIFT 3, not PCARS3!), and I just wondered what the likely window of active PSN support would likely be...

    Are you sure PC1 can't be played online?

    Just found out PC1 PSN servers still work!

    That’s amazing support for a 3 year defunct game.

    The GT5/6 server window was 6 months, the GT6/GTS window was 12 months (because of the need for a new console, I guess). 3 whole years is fantastic.

    Let’s pray the Codemasters sale doesn’t change this practice.

    PC1 & PC2 are peer 2 peer games. There are no servers like Gran Turismo so there is nothing for SMS to shutdown or keep running for that matter.

    But connection is still contingent on being a PS+ subscriber, and I thought that access to that was still licensed by Sony, isn’t it?

    GT5/6 was also peer to peer for the public lobby system, right? Yet got shut down by PD. I’m a bit confused here...

    Not confused enough to troll the Xbox forum while I was a PS4 player, though...
