EA Sports Putting the Shutdown on Their Servers

Well it looks like EA is tired of providing servers to those people who have yet to upgrade to their newer franchises as they have announced that they will be closing many of their servers on February 2nd across the PS3, 360 and PC.  Can’t really say that I blame them as it is expensive to maintain servers and if you don’t feel there is enough of a community to warrant it or your needing the resources for newer games, it makes sense.

Most of the games on the list I can agree with as they are 3 years old but the one that really jumps out at you is Madden 09 for both the PS3 and 360.  Usually support for these sports games last more than a year but EA has decided to go ahead and close it down.
