ATLUS has announced an extension of the North American online servers for Demon’s Souls for PS3. Originally scheduled to be shut down at the end of the final hour of May 31, 2012, the servers will now continue to operate for the foreseeable future. I won’t say this is turning into a circus but kind of, Atlus has announced the shutdown of the servers like 5 times already and haven’t done it since, even after releasing Dark Souls.
ATLUS did not rule out the possibility of future extensions of the North American servers, provided user activity and interest remain constant. Demon’s Souls is out now at $19.99 for PS3 as part of the”Greatest Hits” library. I guess Demon’s Souls is like some of the enemies in the game…hard to kill.
