July 2nd, 2018 - The servers for LittleBigPlanet Karting are set to be shut down

[NO LONGER RELEVANT] July 10th, 2018 - The servers for ModNation Racers are set to be shut down.

The date for the shut down of ModNation Racers has been changed to October 10th, 2018. Its merely an extension of 3 months. While good, in the end they will still die.


They are shutting down the servers of the PS3 video games ModNation Racers and LittleBigPlanet Karting despite active communities for nearly  8 years now ( 6 for LBPK). We don't want them shut down. This will destroy tight knit communities that have been supporting this gamesfor nearly a decade now, a community that still plays night in and night out and thrives, not to mention it will hinder the already-dying PlayStation 3 platform online experience.

There is really 3 options for us: 1.  Keep the servers up indefinitely, as it was previously. No end date in sight. This is the ideal option and our primary goal.

2. Release the info on how to start our own fan servers. Don't let these games die and never see an online presence again. If you don't want to host the servers anymore, that's fine; but let the fans pick the slack up.

3. Keep the servers up until January 1st, 2019. This is the least appealing option that we could possibly have, but its there. Gives us more than (as of 4/30/2018) 70 days to keep playing. This could possibly work in combination with Option 2.

Please Sony/PlayStation. Keep them up. This game means a lot to a lot of people, myself included. This is one of my favorite games of all time. Don't pull the plug just yet. 

We the community, have to at least try to do something. We cannot let something we love just die.
