Awesome. It's great to see games with online passes get their online services shut down. F*** EA.

I wish people would stop defending this type of idiocy (nothing here... yet) by saying they have to shut down the servers in order to save money.

I wonder if people actually think that there's this HUGE server farm just sitting there for each of these games when in reality they're probably running on a single system along with several other titles.

There is no reason to be shutting down these servers other than that they can.

And if online passes are involved, they shouldn't be able to shut them down... EVER. People paid extra for that feature because your company complained and said that they couldn't afford to run the servers without it. Well, now you're shutting it down anyway. Where did all that money go?

This is one of the reasons I don't play games online. It's too easy for companies to screw you over.

This really makes hard to choose EA's counterparts against the rival offerings. Really, online servers lasting two years really is horrible, even though offline is more important to me in these games.
