Oh man.. Even though this forum was dying, this comes as very sad news. Made lots of friends over the years.

Played Borderlands, GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption & others with lots of members here. Great memories, gonna miss this place!

Re: Closure of GameAxis Forums - 22nd April

So is this forum going to be accessible (still online to check old threads) after closing down?

I am porting over a few threads just to test. So far I found that the INDENT tag doesn't seem to work there.

Well, see you guys over there (we'll be using the Console Gaming sub-forum I guess).

I think it's due to the rise of other Social Media platforms. The younger gamers seem to be on those platforms more than forums.
Those who were active on forums previously might have moved to those or just stopped gaming as much

I too would like to see the whole Playstation family under a same forum, including Vita. Vita games are generally a very different league from mobile phone games.
