Shutting down the 09 games is an absolute farce, I wouldnt expect anything less from EA though. Rip off merchants.

That is absolutely shocking!
What disgusting behaviour from a major video game developer!

Pr***s

Bovvered.

You say this whilst funding the company. This is why dedicated servers … You say this whilst funding the company. This is why dedicated servers are better. BF1942 is over 6 years old and still has servers.



True, I still play UT99 and still servers running.

Thats rubbish a playlist server is exactly that hardly any load
the reason 1942 is still up is due to dice not takeing any crap from
ea if ea had theyr way they would have been gone long ago

and ofc dice hosting the master server brower in sweden
and not on ea's servers

all servers register with a master server that hands you that list of servers
if they shut it down tomorrow it would be game over

on the 360 activision dont have a special agreement like ea does
so no servers will be shut down

May just send them back, cant believe nascar 09 server being dumped! Now i know why it was only a fiver! Op have you a link to verify this as have been on the EA site and cant see this mentioned.

is this confirmed? I find it hard to believe EA could get away with shutting down online servers for what were essentially the latest incarnations of some games only 5-6 months ago!

yep - thats why I'm doubting it. Surely people could return 09 versions to EA for a full refund as not fit for purpose under the SOGA.

I Really don't like this when people start doubting people, when all they gotta do is a little searching to see for themselves, i mean what do you expect from ea, a big fricking banner on their homepage saying we are tight wad tw*ts and are switching these games off!! no, they will do it as quiet as possible hoping that the game buying public don't notice......
