Skylanders Universe being cancelled [CLOSED]

#1 Posted: 22:44:04 28/03/2013 | Topic Creator
Activision has confirmed on the skylanders universe blog that they are killing the site on april 29th to make way for a stupid minigames website. To say goodbye, from now until closing day everyone will get 999999999..... coins to do whatever the heck they want. Really sad! I really liked that game, and all that coins!

http://universe.skylanders.com/blog/


Better hope this is an april fools prank or something......

Nah, looks like it's happening, which is sad.

I guess they never really guessed how successful Skylanders would become, and how hard it would be to maintain it for free.
It's gonna bug me whenever I play Spyro's Adventure and it tells me all their hero levels are naught.
I wasted a lot of time on that site too.

Why would they even do this when we've worked hard for getting every Skylander through the use of web codes? What is the point of buying figures if they will no longer have Skylanders Universe?

On the mini-games site, there's a new game called Skylanders: Block Fu. It's fun. But only for a ittle while.

The web codes are used for the mobile games too. Are you seriously suggesting that some people got the figures just for Universe?

Well, without the Lair there's not much, plus it lags like heck. I shall miss it, but only barely...

This is from someone who wailed at the closure of LEGO Universe :P

Typical, the game won't load past a point no matter what browser. Maybe later.

Also, no, play the music for when Xion dies tragically in your arms in Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 days (my younger brother was near in tears, the ending was surprisingly sad, but good. Poor Xion).

I personally will miss it barely. It was laggy, you couldn't type chat and there was only 1 world. I've lost a game called LEGO Universe which had lots of worlds, type chat and immersive customization. I will barely miss this game.

Universe got many things right, although the underlying infrastructure and breadth of the material was lacking. Simply the social aspect of it, some of the mini-games, and the fact you can document and share your collection was among the things I liked.

They are literally taking away the only online interaction/social aspect at a time when Infinity is coming to market. These guys are on crack.

I'm pretty sure that they'll come back, give 'em time for maintenance, there's a lot of nasty glitches with Universe.

Keep in mind you can install the portal driver on your pc and get the code from an unopened box--no need to key it in from the card. The code on the card matches the same code that comes from the figure.

The social interaction of Universe was about as in depth as the social interaction of Spyro's Lair. Who knows, they might be taking away the only online aspect of Skylanders so they can introduce a new online aspect in 'Swap Force'?

The mini-games are fun, but they don't replace Universe. Who knows. Maybe this will be a good change. Maybe the games will be fun. I'd like a co-op Skylanders Online Game with web-codes. It could use the Unity Plug-in.

Even though I never really liked SSU, I have to admit that this is a mistake. People liked this game. Even though there was lots of lagging, I thought it was kinda cool and fun. I would like to atleast see it get out of beta. I think this is costomers down the drain. They are gonna lose lots of costomers for the figures because some people bought them just to play online. Activision or VV, if you are reading this, think about what you are doing. Dont you realize whats gonna happen? You are losing money and support! You really should think about this one more time. And I sign the petition for not closing it.

This is dumb why make an online game and then throw it away many people actually liked this game. replacing it with some sorta puzzle game? wow go figure. I know many people will miss it but i see no point in ruining a game that was in beta and they could have just added new stuff and not replace it but that is activision for you smilie

I agree with this. Many people dont have iphones and yes it is a bad mistake. i mean really its cool u can make ur own skyland and build up the skylander list. They also are cute to dance. I mean who wants to see these guys to keep on fighting? You want to have more fun with these things. Instead of having them just on consoles. smilie

Best news ever. The best thing about it was cataloging your figures. It was a flawed and poor entity anyways. Though I'm not happy about the minigames website. Just save the minigames for iOS/Android systems.

I don't see people cry about this. The thing was already abandonned for years. And even if they didn't destroy it. I wouldn't touch it. A change with something new look promising. The only thing is I didn't capture all the ruby in fortress defense ho wait they have this game

The problem is that they don't want to put effort into it.

The fact that they're closing it instead of fixing all the issues it has is a huge indication of such.

Well, I'm off to sell all of my Giants stuff now. I'm bloody mad about this. I loved Skylanders Universe. It had so much potential. Above all it was just a good time waster. I'm sure Acti make more than enough money to have had it stay up. This just shows how lazy they're being, since they aren't even bothering to fix their biggest online component, and delete it instead. One should try to fix what's broken, not destroy it.

I remember when they said Giants would have more integration with Universe... Pff, yeah right.

Then again, tomorrow is April Fool's. But I doubt this is a joke. Nobody ever even gave the game a chance.

Read what I said. I didn't say you couldn't sue. Anyone can. But it's hard to win a court case without proving damages, which there are none.

There are some great take aways from Universe. It had a lot of things that could've been improved on, in tandem with the releases. It was discerning not to see any improvements. Now I feel a little LESS urgency to get all of the characters, because there's no where I can key in the codes and see my inventory grow---and of course share with others.

Replacing what they had with mini games is just cheap. It actually looks like they are spending less on Skylanders. Wow guys. Don't come crying to us when the game starts flopping, as you continue to bring less value to the table.
