EA Shutting Down Servers on Older Online Titles

on January 4, 2010 8:19 AM

Sports video game giant EA has announced that some of its older titles will have its online servers shut down pretty soon. On February 2, 2009 titles on Xbox, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii and PC, will no longer have dedicated online servers. For those of you who think that it’s unfair it gets better. Titles as recent as their 2009 iterations will be shut down as well. It seems as if this may be a ploy to get you even harder to buy the most recent title every year, but it’s just my hunch. Here is the list of titles:

UEFA Champions League 07 PC and x360
Facebreaker x360 and PS3
Fantasy Football 09 x360 and PS3
FIFA 07 PSP, PS2, PC
Fight Night Round 3 PS2
Madden 08 Wii
Madden 08 PC
Madden 09 Xbox1
Madden 09 Wii and PSP
March Madness 07 x360
NBA 07 PSP, x360
NBA 08 PS2, PSP, Wii
NBA 09 Wii – Europe only
NBA Street (2007) PS3 and x360
NCAA Football 08 PS2
NCAA Football 09 PS2
NASCAR 08 PS2
NASCAR 09 PS2

NFL Tour PS3 and x360
NHL 07 PSP and x360
NHL 08 PC
Tiger Woods 07 PC
Madden 09 x360 and PS3
Madden 07 Xbox 360

So… what were we paying Xbox Live for again?
