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.
Wow, cheers for this, I almost bought The Sims 2 recently too
