SCE Shutting Down Multiplayer Servers for Several PSP and PS3 Titles

Sony Computer Entertainment will shut down some old servers that provide multiplayer for several PSP and PS3 games, the company announced this morning. SCE will start by shutting down the servers for MotorStorm Pacific Rift for the PlayStation 3, and the PSP titles MotorStorm Arctic Edge and SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3 on October 1.

Of course all of these games will still be available for offline play.

SCE did not have a particular reason for shutting these servers down, but we suspect that a lot of its decision making on the topic has to do with low levels of activity versus the cost of operating the servers.
