EA Shutting Down Video Game Servers Prematurely 341

Posted by Soulskill
from the sixty-dollar-yearly-fee dept.
Spacezilla writes "EA is dropping the bomb on a number of their video game servers, shutting down the online fun for many of their Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 games. Not only is the inclusion of PS3 and Xbox 360 titles odd, the date the games were released is even more surprising. Yes, Madden 07 and 08 are included in the shutdown... but Madden 09 on all consoles as well?"

Well, if you had reading comprehension, you would understand from my Parent post that I was complaining about it. Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't that be "Somebody". Should I just say instead of Google, imagine it's "Big Oil" that seems to be the only thing that gets you slashKOS kiddies attention.... "The polar bears Daddy, the polar bears!"

I don't think you get my point, I could care less about your information, I'm not a thief/hacker and am not evil. What I was referring to was that GOOGLE has access to all this information (by design) and they don't seem to give a crap about you, thus your information could be sold to the highest bidder (or just a good hacker) Or the Government, or a foreign Government, or a Political Party that doesn't like you, etc, etc... - getting the picture now?

I stopped using Google when they jumped the shark with China. I also don't like their attitude with not keeping things private for their users. They should make their new motto: "Do know Evil (until we get caught) - then screw you". And to think the founders were Democrat's, that just makes me sick! Does absolute power really corrupt?
