PlayStation Network to shutter service for PS3

Sony confirmed rumours that the PlayStation Network service for the PlayStation 3, Portable and Vita will be retired this summer. It follows a disturbing trend set by Nintendo and Xbox after the shuttering of WiiWare and XBLIG.

 

A library dating back to 2006, PSN’s retirement will sadly wipe out a number of games that are entirely unavailable elsewhere, including many by the foundational and recently closed Tokyo Studio. Buy Tokyo Jungle right now. I cannot stress this enough.

Restored, retooled and re-imagined

Not everyone’s ready to give up the past. After the runaway success of NieR:Automata, Square Enix decided to revisit Automata’s even more cult and stranger predecessor NieR Gestalt.

 

The just-released NieR Replicant is more than just a restoration and re-release. Gestalt has been retooled to be more accessible and in line with Automata, including its bullet hell-inspired combat.
