    Hi Folks,

    Just to clarify a couple of things...

    Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia (SIEJA) are shutting down their online services for the LittleBigPlanet titles on July 31st.

    This shut down will only affect players that are playing LittleBigPlanet using a Japanese version of the game.

    The rest of the world will be unaffected by this and the LittleBigPlanet servers will continue to operate normally for the rest of the LittleBigPlanet player base.

    I don't understand the way region titles work, if they had a different version of the game, say a EU or U version, then they could still get online with it? I'd hate to lose talented people like yu-kamone and all those guys who do the music showcases. This just quite frankly stinks.

    Well, other digital copies of LBP from other regions will work on Japan based PS4s... So i guess there is a workaround!

    I'll try to explain as best as I can...

    The LittleBigPlanet servers are not affected by this.
    They are global and service all players across the world.

    What is being shut down by Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia (SIEJA) are their online services for the LittleBigPlanet series.

    This includes but is not limited to...

    Update/Patch Distribution, Moderation, Localisation, Testing, Marketing, PS Store Support, Customer Service Support, etc... For players within their region and only their region.

    Whilst the LittleBigPlanet servers will continue to be live; without Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia (SIEJA) Online Services providing such things as the necessary update distribution, localisation, testing, etc... that are required for LittleBigPlanet to run effectively.

    It would very shortly reach a point where the LittleBigPlanet servers would be unable to continue to support SIEJA players because they would not be kept up-to-date with the rest of the world.

    This is why the LittleBigPlanet server and the rest of the world will be unaffected because those services will continue to be supported within those regions.

    I also hear the global servers of LBP Karting's and LBP PSP's are shutting down on July 31st aswell, according to a post from Dragonvarsity over at Sackinima. It's only a matter of time before LBP1 gets shut down to .

  11. Thanks!

    The original LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet 3 all share the same server; so those earlier titles will continue to be supported outside Japan alongside LittleBigPlanet 3.

    So to simplyfy prime reason why this happening is SIEJA don't see worth it to spend money (note this not just text but also voice acting) on Japanese translation, since they don't want to have game half translated they drop update support all together and because of that online support can't be handled. Sadly if you ask me, this seems like solid reason to have.

    There still light for Japanese thru, most likely imported discs will still work there as they still get updates

    I think the main reason might be all the new support for PS4 and newer games coming out, that SIEJA just doesn't have the money to still focus on much older consoles/games.

    Sad to see the PSP servers, Japan LBP servers and (atleast) NA LBPK servers go.

  19. Thanks!

    Haven't logged in here for over a year but just want to say this is terrible news. There are many Japanese creators who have been making quality levels for years and absolutely adore the series, and it's sad most will be unable to play anymore. I personally know some big Japanese creators already have US versions of the game and will be relatively unaffected (provided they are willing to repay hundreds of dollars for DLC), but most will be unwilling to go to that length to keep playing. This is really a terrible decision.

    I was about to mention that.

    This will screwed over Japanese Creators, and that's a shame, considering that the created some of the QUALITY looking titles.

    I have a bad feeling that there's going to be a huge boycott in the LBP Community like it was in the past.

    It's been a while since I logged in but I couldn't let such a sad occasion pass without thanking the many Japanese creators and sackboys for their wonderful contribution to the LittleBigUniverse.
    I have enjoyed their levels and the wonderful artistic diversity with which they have enriched the LBP experience for all.

    This is a hard headed business decision by SONY but unfortunately LBP is in the business of dreams as those charming game intros allude to...so if you're in the business of dreams which many sensitive creative souls have engaged with, which many children have loved as part of their formative years then you need to handle that business with a duty of care and consideration to those who have spent countless hours creating, imparting a little piece of their inner creative soul to share with others in that community.

    Have the decency to extend a longer period of notice of at least three months rather than the curt July deadline.
