It costs money to keep a game's online modes operational, which is why every so often a publisher pulls the plug on the servers. And when a publisher is as large as EA with such a large portfolio of titles, server shutdowns are a lot more noticeable.
Here's a list of the latest games to have their online modes put to sleep:
- ARMY OF TWO for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
- Battlefield 2: Modern Combat for Xbox 360
- Medal of Honor Airborne for PlayStation Portable
- Medal of Honor Heroes 2 for PlayStation Portable and Wii
- NASCAR 09 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (North America)
- NCAA Basketball 10 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
- NCAA Football 10 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
- Need for Speed Most Wanted for PC and Xbox 360
- Need for Speed Undercover for PlayStation Portable
- SKATE for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
- Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 10 for PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii
- Madden NFL 10 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
- NHL 10 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
If you play any of these titles online, you might want to begin weaning yourself off them, because starting in August, the online modes will cease to exist. Seriously though, if you're still playing these games, buy some fucking new ones for god's sake!
