    Server closure is inevitable and as long as the publisher/developer announces it at least a couple of months in advance, I have no issue with it happening.

    Even know a lot of us have a lot of complaints about EA you have to give them credit once again for giving us plenty of notice and not just pulling the plug.
    I have 9 usa 360`s set up, 4 pal 360`s, 3 japan 360`s and 2 xboxones set up and the girlfriend calls me crazy.

    EA closing servers should come as a surprise to no one.

    should be no such thing at all. The money they make and yet they turn off servers when they can keep them online, all companies who do this need to be lawsuited and call out.
    This is one of the most asinine things I've ever heard. You know who gets the thought "Oh I reeeaaalllyy wanna play some Tiger Woods 12 online right now"? No one other than achievement hunters who wasted 6 years of time not completing the game. Play your games or get over it.

    Not everyone has unlimited time. There are plenty of games I've never finished from the past 20 years and a lot that I have but haven't touched. I get your point, but you can't expect everyone to be done with every game from the past decade

    Well, there is a difference between going outside and being able to get 10-20 people together to play a game of your favourite sport. Not to mention the cost of equipment, the requirement of a location to play, and the need of physical prowess in some sports.

    Personally, I'd love to play a game of hockey every week or so but ignoring everything else the equipment alone would be $500+

    Most of these have discontinueds from ages a go, so not worth wasting time on most of them.

    Recommmend getting Burnout CRASH ASAP before it gets delisted.

    It's pretty cool that EA kept the servers up as long as they did, far too many other games shut down servers way quicker. Case in point WWE2k16 shut down servers as soon as 2k17 was released.
