With one deft tweet, fans of Sony's exclusive strategical shooters might be disappointed. The official PlayStation Twitter announced that, "Online multiplayer services for MAG, SOCOM Confrontation, and SOCOM 4 will be ending on 01/28/14." I remember being a bit let down when Medal of Honor: Rising Sun PS2 servers went away. Sad times. Servers are not forever, and I assume Sony's going need all the servers it can wrangle to keep PS4 games running smoothly, especially now that multiplayer requires a PlayStation Plus subscription.

Oh MAG/SOCOM 4/SOCOM Confrontation, the pipes, the pipes are calling from glen to glen, and down the mountain side. The summer's gone, and all the roses falling. 

Anyone still play these three? I mean, I'm sure someone does, but, what about you, dear reader? Maybe plans to make a foray back to enjoy the last six months with them, reliving bright memories from years past, from a simpler, earlier time?
