    That and Battlefield 3 and Medal of Honor. I checked out Battlefield: Bad Company MP, it still active. Question is how long will that server stay open. I can understand why EA would shut these servers down, it's not like most people would play *insert EA Sports game* 2010 Multiplayer would last 5 years unlike Medal of Honor or Battlefield.

    EA Servers are crap. All that money they have can't they improve them. The amount of times I get kicked out of the server in FIFA 13. It's even more annoying in UT when I lose contracts for it

    As long as the NFS servers are still alive, I'm good.

    Woo! The longer I hold out on getting it the lower it'll drop in price.

    I don't own any of the games on the list, so I'm not worried about anything. The 2 EA games in my collection with online trophies (Spare Parts & Red Alert 3) were both platted ages ago. But still, that's a hell of a lot of servers to be shutting down. If this is the course of action that EA are so intent on pursuing, then they need to either stop making online trophies altogether, or just include a few short and easy ones that don't require countless hours to earn.

    Does anyone else see a problem with them shutting down servers that you're forced to either buy a brand new copy or pay extra for the online use? It's bad enough countless people buy cheaper games that say "online enabled" only to find out when they get home that the online features are shut down and they can't even earn a platinum. Not everyone frequents sites like these or is up to date with shut down lists, especially parents and other family buying games for their children.

Please send me a reply about Army of Two: The 40th Day and Brutal Legends since I don't check here that offten.
    Army of 2: 40th Day is impossible to plat unless you already have the DIY Trophy (the mask creator site is gone)

    and I see alot of hate about EA.....now I like to bash them all the same like you guys, but you have to give them thanks for atleast NOTIFYING YOU of upcoming server closures..... Atari, codemasters and a couple of others have shut down servers without any notice....
    WRC 1 & 2, SBK ,08,09, Ghostbusters, Operation Dragon Rising, Overlord, Dirt 2 and a few other games have had thier online servers stopped without any warning whatsoever(Dirt 2's online is fine, but DirtNet is gone so 2 trophies are impossible) and thats just been in the last couple of months.....

    So the games that servers are closing has been out for 2 years and people expect them to stay open longer? I really don't think it's EA fault if you can't achieve the because of servers being closed. I believe it's certain people fault who decided to keep buying games whenever something new comes out. Seems like people like to buy 5 or 6 games at a time. It's nothing wrong with that but when you have a big backlog of games to play and most of them require you to play online then who fault is it?

    I'm really glad to hear that Double Fine owns the Brutal Legend servers, I feel comfortable about re-platting it now Can't say I'm affected by all the server shutdowns b/c I don't play sports games but I feel for those who are. I don't care for EA much myself but I can understand why they shutdown servers for old games when they have annual installments. Games like those really shouldn't have any online trophies though, it's just a poor business practice to me.

    That's the problem itself lies in online tacked on games. Meaning you need to plat em now or pay for it later. Still at least EA and Deep Silver gives you a nice heads up on when their games are being shutdown for good. Yeah it's online tacked on and brings an grim future for when you guy an product that could be useless to plat afterwards still it's better than Atari and others just shutting things down without an notice.

    Agreed, if you are serious enough about Platinum hunting then you know the risks of online trophies, whether it be servers expiring or general lack of interest. It's not nice to be online if it's not your thing but then, no one is forcing that on you.
