EA Sports Server Shutdown Next Week Means NBA Live is Finished

kotaku.com: NBA Live 10 is one of six EA Sports titles that will lose online support on Jan. 11., according to a notice from Electronic Arts. While retiring online features for sports titles more than a year old is not uncommon for any sports publisher, killing multiplayer support for NBA Live 10, which released in 2009, is noteworthy as it symbolically means the end of any professional basketball simulation offered by EA Sports.
A scan of NBA Live's multiplayer community on PlayStation 3 just before publication showed 377 online and 36 playing a game in progress. (NBA Live, PS3)

I don't like this.. i rather have one shitty basketball game and one very good one. More competition = better games.

When one is too shitty to even be competition , it have as much bearing as the big game being alone on the market .

Have faith they'll probably just relaunch it on the next few consoles

Why can't EA just patch in a hosting ability with a P2P connection for users?

They are the worst for shutting down servers and forcing you to buy a new version just to play online >:(

Can't believe they have the balls to shut down servers while charging $10 to access their servers through Online Pass....
