Online support for a number of 2010 EA Sports titles is set to end next month.
NBA Jam ? w00t 0_o Thankfully I don't buy any sports games. I hope they are talking about NBA Jam disc based version not the On fire downloadable one
I can understand the need to shut down servers. But doing it for games that only came out last year is a bit ridiculous. I normally try and defend EA on here because I don't think they are as bad as many people make them out to be but but this would annoy me if I owned any of these games.
"EA Sports Server Shutdowns" ... and that is why I don't buy EA sports games.
They're probably following 2k's lead. 2k has already shut down nba 2k12 servers. Which means the average life expectancy u can get from playing nba 2k13 (if u were to buy it now) would be about 10 months. Don't expect to play online longer than that. That means there product is a NO buy for me. If they offered LAN option on the pc side u could always use Tunngle to play online, but they don't so there's no way to play online.
wow they shut down 2K12 servers already??? at least EA gives people 2-3 years to play online, wow. nobody can complain about EA now and to be fair to EA they shut servers down based on what percentage of people still play online. I remember them saying that they shut servers down which make up less than 1% of traffic across all EA servers, at least that's what they say.
"nobody can complain about EA now" - torchic Yes we can. 2k sports are also on my "no buy" list.
They better not mean On Fire Edition.
"The decision to retire older EA titles is never easy." That's also what they said when they shut down the servers for BF2: MC.
I think maybe with the release of pay for your own server on BF3 this is what EA might continue to use for all games giving an option for people who want to play it online. I'm so sick of EA and all the BS, i'm sick of a lot of publishers anymore.
Isn't online gaming wonderful?
It is, actually.
It is, its just EA that sucks. Look at a game like Call of Duty 4, still up and running and that came out like in 2007. If Activision was greedy they could shut down these servers and force people to buy the newer games....but they don't. Expect Battlefield 3 servers to be shut down by 2014. At least on consoles.
Because COD 4 doesn't use servers its P2p
You say that now... but one day... one day...
I just logged in to Resistance: FOM on Friday and those servers are still up and running after 6 years. EA is full of bullshit.
Fight Night Round 2's servers are still up if I'm not mistaken. That's the only sports game I could bring myself to care about anyways.
Ea sports has fallen apart over the years.I hope 2k gets the nfl license back.
