that's a pretty long list but they should clean it up. Also they shouldn't shut down the servers for 360 games or PS3 just not right.. wait till the next generation of consoles

Why not load it up and see if it works. Only thing I am curious about on that list is, NHL 07. I think i'm going to buy that game soon to get the ranked win done just in case.

It says they're only shutting down the NHL 07 Xbox servers, not the 360 servers. At least that's the way I read it.

Could some one give some more info on this. I just found out about them shutting down the severs for Def Jam and other Xbox360 games. Does this mean there is no way of ever getting those online achievements once they shut the serves down? Can someone put a list of Xbox360 games that servers have been shut down or will be shut and has online achievements that won't be able to be gotten anymore. I find this a very curious thing and would like more info on it. I did check the EA link at top but I was wondering if there was more games then that that have been shut down. I think it would be a good idea of keeping a running list of these games that won't be able to have the online achievements unlocked.

Thats just complete BS, like it just isnt right. If im playing $60 now for games, i should be rested assured that ill still have what i paid for. I dont see why if they dont wanna run the servers anymore, why not just hand those down to Microsoft's servers like how it SHOULDVE been.

You are right but they didn't and now we have to deal with it.

Thank you for the link Slim Pizza Boy :) It really sucks about these games and the serves being shut down. Is it possible to patch these games and change the requirement for the achievement so it can be gotten?...

Wait a minute, they did do something like this before, but back ass-wards, they took Crystal Quest and changed the requirements for the achievements because...well I don't know why, to make it harder I guess. As far as I know that's the only game to ever be changed. Anyone know if any other games had this done? This should be done for games that have the servers shut down, it would be only fair, but of course things with Microsoft are not always fair. o_O

Weak sauce...major weak sauce. Definitely not going to put something on my card that I cannot 1000. Losing revenue...why not just shut all the regular Xbox servers but leave the 360 ones? I guess I don't know how much it costs to run a server...if anyone can answer this that would be great!

I don't know if anybody has noticed this but the list has been updated.

Def jam: icon is no longer on it.

Maybe they decided to let people get their achievements with all the added traffic the servers are likely seeing now.

Well I just bought this game tonight from best buy and I was going to rush to try and get all the online achieves done but now I'm not so sure I need to. Can anyone actually confirm this to be 100% true? They took the other 360 games off except for fifa 06. Maybe they are waiting until the normal september 1 shut down?

If it makes you feel better, boosting 200 matches can take 2 hours per person if you're efficient.

I picked both TI songs "What You Know" and "Top Back", on the executive level, and it just takes two throws. When the match starts, second player takes two steps backwards and the first player throws second player into the elevator to crack it. If it's "Top Back" then spin the turntable once. Then if your timing is down, you can toss the second player in on the next bass beat.

It averaged me about 17 seconds a match, not including time to rematch. But it came out to 15 games every 10 minutes.

I suggest you still get the online achievements while you can. I was just trying to give hope to those of us who can't get the game till after july 1st.

Yeah it looks hopefully because they are not listed on the site anymore to be shut down, I was going to buy it off e-bay last weekend but I known there was no way to get it here in time, if they keep the serves up longer I will for sure buy it. I know a lot of people have been upset about the server shut downs and maybe they are listening to the people finally. If they could just turn the servers on for a week once a year or something, it be great promotion for EA, call it EA week and turn on the servers for all the games they shut down, that way they could shut down servers for more games and be able to turn them back on during that week. At least they should patch the games for the achievements if nothing else, it would be good PR on their part.

Good thing I was in a hurry to boost my 200 wins :) I only need like 2 achievements for my 1000.. Its still pretty gay that they are closing 360 Servers. Theres still Xbox servers up and I know those servers are dead so wtf..

They need to shut down every server except Halo 2, and leave the 360 servers alone..
