Before Eye of Judgment came along, you had to use your imagination if you wanted tiny tough-as-nails monsters to spring forth from your cards.
Now it looks like you’ll have to imagine a few online servers as well.
“We at SCEE sincerely thank you for your continued support of THE EYE OF JUDGMENT. The online battle service for this product will terminate on 30 September 2010. Offline play will remain available even after the conclusion of online service,” reads a post on the PlayStation community forum.
So that’s that, then. Goodnight, sweet prince. You’ll be making angels go, “Wow, that’s pretty neat, but I doubt I’d actually go through all that hassle to play it for any significant period of time” soon enough.
