Sony has announced that the servers for the brain game Smart As… will be shutting down at the end of May.

As with all server-connected games that have moved past their prime, Smart As… has lived a full life and now must be relegated to the “never to be platinumed again” bin. That said, it’s not quite over yet, and if you’re both quick and dedicated you might be able to get that plat’ before time runs out on May 31st.

Here’s the official server shutdown message, as found on PlayStation’s “Game Server” page;


So there you have it folks; as of this writing (and not including today) you’ve got forty-four (44!) days to either get that platinum or forget it forever. Do you have the dedication? Do you have the skill? Only you have the power to find out, and you’d better do it quick.

    Won’t the game still be playable? Just wont have the compare charts or whatever.
    What trophies wont be obtainable anymore?

      There are a few, like the Street Smart trophies – get 25 Stars, 50, 75, 100 etc and anything else that has leaderboard specific trophies.

      I think there are only 5-8 online trophies, but it will be these that will be affected so I’d get them quick before the servers are shut down – I know I will be!

    I didn’t realize their servers were still going!

    And how I will get the smart Street trophies if I need to wait a whole week to play it again. It is impossible for me to get the 100 stars because of it. I’m not travelling to different places to get it in 1 day
