Alongside Killzone 2, MotorStorm was the second game that Sony used to overhype PS3. At E3 2005, Sony showed a CGI trailer for it, claiming that it was an in-engine trailer. And while the final product never came close to that CGI trailer, MotorStorm was a fun arcade racing game.
Now as with most PS3 games, Sony has already closed the servers for MotorStorm. However, a team of dedicated fans has found a workaround so that you can, once again, play it online. Not only that, but PC gamers can use the Playstation 3 emulator, RPCS3, in order to join the fun.
As the PSONE team stated:
“Welcome back to the trail Motorstorm fans, drive, taunt, slap, and punch your way to victory in this unique fan-favorite PlayStation 3 title again available in 2021 to play online through PlayStation Online Network Emulated servers DNS, available to play now on PS3 & RPCS3.”
PSONE or PlayStation online emulated is a team dedicated to reviving certain Sony games that uses Sony’s Medius server. PSONE currently supports numerous PS3 games. By using it, players can enjoy Warhawk, Socom Confrontation, Killzone 2 and Twisted Metal Black.
In order to use PSONE, you’ll need a copy of Motorstorm, a PlayStation 3 or RPCS3, a PlayStation Network Account, and an active internet connection (to connect to PSONE DNS Servers). Then, you’ll have to use 22.214.171.124 as your Primary DNS and 126.96.36.199 (or 188.8.131.52) as your Secondary DNS.
