EA is at it again ...

I don't know how many people saw this, but it was buried in the description of the game:

Quote:
EA MAY RETIRE ONLINE FEATURES AFTER 30 DAYS NOTICE POSTED ON www.ea.com OR 30 DAYS AFTER THE LAST DAY OF THE 2008- 2009 NHL SEASON.
(from here http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-CA/ga...=0&sb=1#offers)

So, 30 days after Lord Stanley's cup has been claimed by the winning team, online play for this game is potentially dead in the water.

Way to go EA, another title to add to your winning record of supporting online features in the games that you publish.

OK, I probably misunderstood the text in the description. When I first read it I thought "online features" meant online play (i.e. ranked matches, etc.). After another look, it probably means other stuff.

I just hope it doesn't bork achievements (like they have done in the past).

its just the point that they knew that the online was probably going to be shut off so they still made achievements for it anyway

I already have all the achievements, but the online multiplayer is fun. Damn you EA, for planning to remove it.

Even if they do take it off, I actually enjoy playing against my friend locally more than I do online. I love this game!
