No, once they turn them off, it's off, meaning you will never be able to get the online achievements for those games.

It sucks doesn't it? You have to dedicate to each game really if you wanna get them.

They urge you buy the most up-to-date version instead of buying the old ones.

yea thats because they want 2 save money on the old servers and make more money with every1 buying the new games

Yeah, they make you buy them brand new as well, thanks to their online pass.

it really is ***

Great business plan....

Servers cost money to run and its not worth running a server for the handful of people still playing an old game.

But that is not the ethos of xbox live is it, Xbox live worked so well when it started because us the players were the servers that the others played on. Yet here we are now still paying for xbox live and yet we are using EA servers to play our games on? What do we pay for to MS then if they are only letting us connect to the internet and play on servers from game manufacturers I mean its not bad work if you can get it is it.

 

What is EAs problem with letting us host games as live should be? Why the need to ring fence them so they can and do stop the ability to use the games you bought online (Oh yea its so you will buy fifa 705 or whatever its at now). You are getting ripped of and you seem to be not only saying its fine but making excuses up for them it beggers belief it really does.

 

MS stopped the ability of the old xbox joining live and in one go stopped people playing it any more, I can to a degree understand that I dont like it though but for EA to stop you from being able to play a game online just so you buy the next in line of the same crappy game just to carry on is rubbish to say the least.

 

Fight me on xbox live RTCW :) you know you want to...

I do understand what you mean, but forgive me if I'm wrong, but I don't see many people playing FIFA 09 now that FIFA 11 is out. I am against it, but I do see where they're coming from.
