EA Shutting Down Video Game Servers Prematurely 341 341

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?"

Comment: Re:Another roommate prank... (Score 1) 282 282

A prank I played on my roommates (I had three of them at the time), was putting shaving cream in their towels (which were hanging up in the bathroom). However rather than not putting any in mine, I did mine and didn't do someone else's to make the illusion that he did the prank. It worked quite well. One roommate showered first, got full of shaving cream, noticed the one towel without shaving cream, got pissed, then went to that person's room and sprayed shaving cream all over the place. It was quite funny.
