    Thought this thread might be handy, given some people still play older EA games online or might want to get an older version of an EA Sports title for example.

    Vast majority of people won't be affected but this time I actually will, as I still play FIFA 11 and never saw the need to upgrade to 12/13 when 11 still plays a decent game. Still got an active online community too, never had a problem finding a game.

    So, bit annoyed really. I might buy 12 or 13 on the cheap so I can play with friends as well, but I was perfectly happy with the odd game on 11.

    I'm dreading the day they decide to turn off the bfbc2 servers.

    It really is a shitty practise to do this, especially with relatively new games

    Doesn't the 360 use peer to peer, so there's very little cost to the companies of doing online. Seems a bit shitty, especially when I pay for live.
