Well I was reading the forums and I saw an award that supported the 1000 on live 07. I was thinking that us members could contact EA and ask them to open up and rerun the servers for a day so that people could get the online match avhievement.
I put this in the games thread because I figured no one would look in NBA Live 06 one.

Getting EA to support the 07 one is hard enough. The cost involved to them in setting up the servers for this would be huge.

Thats true minty. But it's a pretty awesome game (even though i suck at it XD). It would be great if they could open up the servers.

Maybe we should all pay using microsoft points. possibly 400-800.

Ok thats going a bit too far, especially for one day. I would only pay that if they kept the serves open for me forever.

You realise it would cost them 10s of thousands of dollars to set it up??

And they'd probably get under 100 people use it.

Pick ya battles ;)

i'd be desperate for this as im missing a few online achievements, but like Minty said, i can't see it happening.. And i can't see people paying 200+ ms points just for what.. 75G

Yes, but we should sign a petition for all people who need it and send it to them and see what they say.
It would be for one day.

Thats the point. You're really pissing into the wind with this one....

you could always try i guess, can't see it happening though..

And you know what happens when you do that?! lol.

I don't think many people would care about it. Like you said, it's 75GS, that's not going to make or break someones completion percentage.

It'd be a waste of time, tbh.

Screw the servers. Patch the damn games they decide to stop supporting to bypass their server and just use Live. Besides if I am not mistaken the games are still peer based and only the matchmaking goes through server.

I believe they made an announcement which warned people that they were taking down the servers for the old games before they did it. So if they let you know when they were going to do it, and you didn't get the online achievements done before then, then it's just tough shit. They shouldn't be expected to put the servers back up because some people were late in getting the game. To the guy who said that he wanted them back up so he could still play the game online, get rid of 06 and get 08, either that or wait for the new one this year.

Take it easy up there. I was j ust suggesting it as an idea as I just got the game and noticed they were shut. Relax.

You would be surprised at the amount of people who would pay EA just to get this achievement unlocked (in MS points of course). EA would make a bigger fortune and achievement getters would be 60GS richer and have that coveted 1000. Whether LIVE would let them do something like that is another story...

There would be better things for me to petition than this tired old stuff... Like the fact that the Tiger Woods 07 servers are still up, and you can play online, but you can't play online tournaments? WHAT THE F? It is there, just let us use it!

This is why I hate these servers. Bring them back.

Every person that proposed giving EA money to bring back something that EA is responsible for taking offline needs to stop. Don't you realize the terrible floodgates you'd be opening?

It's ashame that a game with online achievements gets its servers shutdown but let that be a lesson to you achievement whores out there. Whore early and whore often, haha!

I understand though it would suck though for those who just recently got a 360 or anytime after it was that the servers were shutdown.

As much as you'd like to have some fun and play the game, I can guarantee you that this has absolutely zero chance of working.

Jesus, that is a bit harsh toward someone who is just suggesting something. It could work, it could not, no one can really know anything until its tried. So go for it if you really want to and good luck.

wait are the 07 servers down then too? i was hoping to get that 1000 online before they shut them down, but i guess it went unnoticed?

I seriously doubt EA would bother opening servers again for an old game like this. I think it would be easier for them to just release a title update that automatically gave you the achievements when you tried to access the Online mode and it tells you that the servers are down. I really think Microsoft should have made a policy about this to publishers that use outside servers. Don't make achievements that will be disabled!

And for those of you saying it would cost EA ten grand or whatever, you're crazy. It would cost them nothing, the server software could run side by side on the current servers, its not like they take extra processing power if nobody is using them. They really just turn off online support to old games to encourage people to buy the game next year.
