EA Retires Online Services For Its '11 Sports Lineup
If you are the kind of gamer that likes to wait a year or two to buy your sports games then you might want to know that EA will soon be shutting down it's online servers for many of the games it released a couple years ago.
On January 11, EA will be retiring the online service for the following titles:
- FIFA Soccer 11 for PC, PS3, Wii & Xbox 360
- FIFA Soccer 11 Ultimate Team for PS3 & Xbox 360
- Madden NFL 11 for PS3, Wii & Xbox 360
- Madden NFL 11 Ultimate Team for PS3 & Xbox 360
- NBA JAM for PS3 & Xbox 360
- NBA LIVE 10 for PS3 & Xbox 360
- NCAA Football 11 for PS3 & Xbox 360
- NHL 11 for PS3 & Xbox 360
- NHL 11 Ultimate Team for PS3 & Xbox 360
But that's not all. On January 14, EA will also be shutting down The Sims 2 (PC/Mac, and TheSims2.com) and then January 19 Trenches II for iOS gets the axe.
Considering that NBA Live 10 was the last game release for that series, this means that EA Sports will no longer have any NBA games that feature online play. You'll still be able to play these games offline, but if you're looking to do anymore online play with these titles then you better get your game on now. We mean right meow!
