Hello All,

Just wanted to update any EA sports fan that the online servers for the 07 games that traditionally close September 1st will not be closing "anytime soon" according to EA. I've been asking them for an answer on this do to some current unattainable/impossible except for 1 last ditch attempt achievements, ie. NBA Live 07(1000 online) and Tiger Woods 07(Play 5 Daily Tournaments). This was the latest response from them to me dated August 25th, 2008...

Hello there,

According to what my sources told me, the servers wont be closed anytime
soon. So I would say you all should be able to get this going and get those
achievements.

Thanks for being patient with us.

Well they have to keep those open since xbox rules state each game must have 1000 points and if the online ones come invalid it wil break rules

What? Wrong!

The NBA Live 06 servers have been shut down for a while now. So the max you can get in that game is only 960GS.

But this is good news as I need the 5 Daily Tournaments achievement in Tiger Woods 07. Don't know how in the world I'm gonna get that achievement though.

You really didn't know that? That's a decent suggestion though, lol.

That will prob never happen. We all have enough trouble trying to get them to do stuff for the 07 games!

So this means I can still get the Online Achievements on Def Jam Icon? Awesome, but I can't find it anywhere, just my luck!

Wait so I don't really need to worry about this if I've yet to get the achievements for NHL 08?

You've got about 1-1 1/2 more years until they close the servers for NHL 08.

Im pretty sure that achievement in Tiger is glitched and unattainable.

Yes. They'll be up for a few more months. They'll close the servers for NBA Live 07 a few months after NBA Live 09 is released.

Online isn't needed for the achievements, apparently it doen't even count towards 300 win achievement. I got my 1000 gamerscore on it from not even playing an online game. :)
