fans begged for them to say up, and it worked for several years.

WTF, i played the EU Version 3 days ago and there where traffic at Old Monk. Had 2 fights....and 3 guys dying on the way to the boss fog in 2h - not bad for a game so old.

Hope it's just a rumor, or we have to screem again loud enough. Perhaps we should all log in again in the next days to show them, that it's not dead. Who comes to 4-1 for a little FC tonight? I could host at around 8 p.m. GMT+1 on EU Servers. I could also host on NA or ASIAN servers, but i would prefer EU....

They are not allowed to shut down the servers, before we got a PS4 Version, they can't take away my most loved game in the soulsborne series without proper substitute. DkS3 is good in that regard, but not perfect.

There is no such thing as a proper substitute for Demons Souls.

a PS4 Version (prefered with the 6th archstone active) would be a proper substitute, but it had to be the same game engine, not the BB/DkS3 engine....and please keep the drop undropable things in multiplayer and the Thomas glitch for fast building of PvP toons....

I couldn't care less about the dupe glitch personally, since back then I could clear the whole game in 4 hours and have a new character PvP ready in 5. Dropping undroppable stuff could just be made into an actual thing instead of a glitch (as in, just make them droppable instead). Spellswap glitch needs to go, though.

It's just a rumor and there's no confirmation that From is planning a PS4 Demon's Souls, but if they do bring it back I hope they keep the general idea of the weapon reinforcement/multiplayer restriction thing from DaS3. Except, change it so that it's only based off what the highest upgraded weapon in your inventory is instead of highest upgraded ever, and also make it to only +1 higher instead of +2 higher.

Keep Soulsucker as is, retain the effectiveness of Scraping Spear and Acid Cloud (with the weapon upgrade multiplayer limit, Scraping Spear would count as a +7 weapon), buff a couple of the weaker boss weapons like Meat Cleaver, double the duration of the spell Soul Thirst, make crossbows upgradable, reclass the Old Hero's sword into a curved greatsword and boost its base damage and scaling, include 2-3 more curved greatswords and 1-2 greatbows in the 6th Archstone DLC, increase the droprate of Pure Bladestone, make a couple more Luck-scaling things so Luck isn't virtually useless, keep spells with no requirements and catalysts/talismans with no upgrades (so they're still based on pure scaling alone), and give Faith a couple of offensive miracles other than Wrath of God. Should be fun.

What? Are the servers closed permanently or will they come back up?
I was planning to start a coop playthrough with a friend who has never played it before in a couple of weeks.

That's not a substitute, that's just Demons Souls again.

I'd prefer a straight port of the game to PS4. The only thing that I'd like changed is the Pure White/Pure Black world tendencies being affected by the online communities'- that way we could have better control over getting NPC's to show up.
