Pretty stupid IMO to not allow the DLC to be purchased anymore. The studio that made Kingdom's of Amalur went bankrupt and no longer exists, but you can still buy the game and the DLC on the PSN store.

I understand not supporting the multiplayer, but from what I have read there are still more people playing GT5 than there have been copies of GT6 sold, so I think it is stupid that they are removing online support so soon.

That's probably why they're cutting support so soon.

Not a smart move to cut support for a game that is still so popular. All it is going to do is piss off a lot of people.

I understand if a game is no longer popular.

Sony is STILL supporting Everquest, which came out in 1999, even though Everquest II was released in 2004 and Everquest Next is going to be released this year.

I know that they are cutting support to get more people to buy GT6, but they are doing it the wrong way and are going to piss off a lot of people. IMO, they should keep supporting both GT5 and GT6 until GT7 is released (which they are already working on) for the PS4, and then drop GT5 and shortly after drop GT6 unless GT6 sales miraculously pick up.

Difference is they still get subscription fee's from everquest, whereas most copies of GT5 now include the DLC

The company that made Kingdoms of Amalur went bankrupt and no longer exists, yet you can still buy the game and the DLC off of the PSN.

There are a lot of old games where you can still purchase the DLC for.
