Well, unless when they sold the game they STATED CLEARLY that the game was not sold, but was an 18 month lease of service then YES WE DO.
You see, when you sell someone an item, YOU HAVE TO DAMN WELL STAND BEHIND IT!
Games aren't sold, they haven't been for a long while...they're LICENSED. Look at the back of the damn box, or the manual. And with most games the license notes clearly state the online multiplayer functionality can be discontinued at ANY time and isn't guaranteed to last forever.
Imagine if you bought a house and it started falling down after 18 months... perhaps that would also just be ok? after all, the seller got what they wanted..
Actually there are rules on that, and I do believe that it isn't the sellers responsibility, after a certain period of time. That's what the inspection is for, to catch things that need fixing. Now if something happens AFTER that, it's the new owners responsibility.
Still, I guess you will get your EA shill money no matter.. but then they dont pay you to be a moron do they, you do it voluntarily.
I actually don't play sports games. Are you an overly entitled whiny 12 year old? The reality is that software is licensed, it's that simple.
