EA Shutting Down Several Game Servers

Posted on Monday, March 19 @ 10:55:08 Eastern by Keri_Honea
Electronic Arts announced today that they will be shutting down online servers for several console titles, starting next month. One of these titles is part of the Online Pass program.

Game servers for the following console games will be shut down on April 13, 2012:
  • Boom Blox Bash Party for Wii 
  • Burnout Revenge for Xbox 360 
  • EA Create for PC, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 
  • EA Sports Active 2.0 for PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 
  • EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp for Wii 
  • FIFA 10 for PlayStation Portable and Wii 
  • The Godfather II for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360
  • EA Sports MMA for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
  • Need for Speed ProStreet for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
  • The Saboteur (loss of The Midnight Club access) for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
  • Spare Parts for PlayStation 3 Xbox 360
The following iOS games will be shut off on March 31st:
  • Battlefield 3: Aftershock
  • Fantasy Safari
  • Ghost Harvester
EA's policy states that they only shut down game servers for games that represent less than 1 percent of all peak online activity across all of EA's games. Obviously, there's no point in spending the money in maintaining servers if no one is using them, but the fact that EA Sports MMA is an online pass game and will be turned off stirs up all kinds of conflicting feelings. On the one hand, it sucks for anyone who did spend that extra $10 to access online content, but on the other hand, it seems like there aren't very many of them anyway.
