Just got on.

I just got online today to get my achievements in case it does go down. I could get the "Win an online race" but it looks like the EA Locker has been disabled...damn...there goes ten points I'll never see...

The online isn't shut down, but this game is garbage because before NASCAR 09, the Locker achievement still couldn't be unlocked. What do you know, EA has a glitched achievement because their online doesn't work anymore?

RETAIL 100%: 183

ARCADE 100%: 101

Having fun ...

Rhis is bullshit. I just rented the game from Gamefly last week. I hate EA and having to have thier own fucking server system.

the game's not even 2 years old and they're not coming out with a 2010 version so what's the point?

WHAT THE FUCK IS EA'S PROBLEM?!? This isnt the first game they've done this on. It really makes me not want to buy there fucking games anymore. Cause lets see: 1st I was gonna buy NBA Live 06' for a easy 1000 GS, but NOOOOOO they close the server to save "MONEY" like they're fucking hurting for it. 2nd Me and my friend just bought Nascar 08' like a week ago so we could play online together and I started playing "Chase" mode about 25% into it so I figured hey lets get some of those easy 10 point achievements. I work my way to the "Trade Your Setup" bullshit and see what I hope was wrong. Come on here and find out that I not only cant get "Trade Your Setup" , "Online Horsepower" , but I FUCKING ALSO CANT GET "All Or Nothing" according to some of the other forums. THAT IS 135 GAMERSCORE!! All I want to know is WHY DOESNT MICROSOFT DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS? Also if any members read this I have a idea that may help some "achievement whores" (like myself ), why not make a kind of list of games that has there online servers shut down? So that people who complete games 1000/1000 will no to stay away. Just an idea. Sorry for the language im just REALLLLY PISSED OFF at EA.

How do you know that there is no 2010 version?

EDIT: I just read about the license expiration in 2010 and now joining with GT5.

There really needs to be a rule about not allowing online only achievements under these circumstances.
