Atlus Will Keep Demon's Souls Servers "For The Foreseeable Future"
Maybe you're still having fun with Demon's Souls and haven't yet made the leap to Dark Souls. Or maybe you just like the first title more.
Either way, good news: Atlus has announced an extension for the Demon's Souls North American online servers. They were originally slated to be shut down on May 31, 2012 but for whatever reason (popularity, perhaps?), Atlus has decided to keep the servers up "for the foreseeable future."
Said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Marketing and Sales:
"We're incredibly excited to be able to announce that the Demon's Souls online experience will persist for a while longer. While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon's Souls. For all the gamers who have yet to discover the game's amazing online experience, we're happy to say you can still log on and find out why Demon's Souls is still regarded by many as one of the finest games of all time."
If you never experienced Demon's Souls, you can grab it now for only $19.99; it has earned a well-deserved spot in the Greatest Hits library.
