After being a little annoyed at buying NBA 2K8 Brand New, and then not being able to play half the game i decided to Email 2K Sports Tech Support,

** 1st Email **

I explained my disapointment about the servers being down and asked why "older" servers to less popular games were still up for NBA 2k8 being taken down,

-- 2k Sports Responce --

Dear SCOTT,


All legacy 2K8 games and previous are shut down due to the server migration and a change in code. This is a rare occurrence and will not happen again in the immediate future.

Kind regards,

Technical Support

** 2nd Email to 2k Sports **

I said this does not help my problem, and asked to be more to the point on why the servers were taken down, and that i paid for "half" a game, and that the game was no longer a 1000/1000 Gamerscore game because of it..

Dear SCOTT,

You can play the single player mode in the game and can still connect directly to another player

Kind regards,

** 3rd Email To 2k Sports **

Dear SCOTT,

Unfortunatly there is no way around this.

Kind regards,

Technical Support

** 4th Email to 2k Sports **

I said that the customer services were poor, and said about fellow xbox360achievement.org members getting there game swapped as a replacement, and that i will be following this email up with advice from CB and hope to hear from them (2k sports) with a result to the problem....

Dear SCOTT,

All online features in the game may be changed at anytime

Kind regards,

Technical Support

**Edit**

DAMN! I never finished getting my online achievements.... wait you can still directly connect to another player, does that mean you can get the achievements at all?

you can't get the online stuff anymore, as the servers aren't there same goes for stuff like NHL 2k7 and things of that sort anything requiring online stuff for achievements won't work on the older titles.

Can we still directly connect to another person though to get the online ranked achievements?

No, it's not possible to get the online chieves as they require the matches to be ranked. If you connect directly to another player, the games are not ranked.

this is ridiculous with 2K games, i won't be buying them at all, at least ea sports keep theirs up for a little bit, 2K takes them down after like 6 months it is stupid. lets boycott the games so they will change

I got all the online achieves, except the ones that needed lobbies, in the beginning of September. I'm pretty sure you can still get the streak related and win related achievements.

Not sure what possessed me to buy this game other than maybe a $14 price tag but I never got around to playing it. after reading this thread, looks like I won't bother and will be trading it in at gamestop along with NBA 07. Oh well.

Thanks for posting this.

(edit)

Since these are not achieveable, I think the guide needs to be updated to indicate which 2k8 achievements can't be achieved

I agree. I would like some of the older games to be edited, especially sports games since they are the first to go (servers). I was excited for it and then I saw this. Disappointing :(
