ATTENTION PLUS TEAM

It has been revealed today that EA will be shutting down a handful of their sports games servers. 

 

Games that will say goodbye to online play are as follows:

 

FIFA 11

NHL 11

Madden 11

NBA Live 10

NCAA 11

 

and 

 

 

NBA Jam!

 

If this is offered to plus members tomorrow you may want to rethink the strategy there. That is kind of a **bleep** move on their part and it's probably all finalized for plus but I thought you should know! Smiley Very Happy My time travelling PS3 says it will be free to plus members tomorrow but who knows. Smiley Happy

 

Whoops. Forgot link!

Looks like they have under 24 hours to fix this.

Of course everyone is going to **bleep** on here and the PS blog, but this has nothing to do with Sony, it's all on EA.

It is all on EA. Pretty shady if they finalized this without letting Sony know the shutdown was coming. If Sony did know, then shame on them I guess. Smiley Very Happy

Or maybe that's why it's becoming free...EA went to Sony and was like, "Hey, we're shutting down our servers for NBA Jam, so if you want to include it as a IGC, go ahead"

It's not like these games were any good to begin with.

Unfortunately it looks like the PS3 and the 360 versions are the only ones getting shut down. I guess the Wii is staying up? Say wha?!...

 

Straight from the source. Smiley Sad
