Sony has confirmed that it will spend some of the first half of 2014 saying goodbye to old friends. Servers for the Resistance series, Gran Turismo 5 and a few other PS3 exclusives will be shut down, blocking online play.

On January 28th the multiplayer componenets on SOCOM: Special Forces, SOCOM: Confrontation and MAG will be put to an end.

Following that, Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2 and Resistance 3 will be gone on March 28th.

Finally, Gran Turismo 5 has its servers shut off on May 20th.

It’s a shame in some cases. Sure, Gran Turismo 5 is survived in Gran Turismo 6, but the Resistance series will now only have the sub-par Burning Skies on Vita to play online. Furthermore MAG, Sony’s 256-player multiplayer game, was destined for better things.

But this will undoubtedly make room for many, many more hours of PS4 multiplayer action, so dry those eyes.
