EA shutting down the leaderboards/online multiplayer of many games
Including EA Active Sports 2.0 which only came out a year ago. I am not buying another EA game because of this.

Change in virtual currencies

On January 18, 2012, EA switched users from game-specific virtual currencies to a common currency in four Play4Free games. Existing balances in the current currencies were converted into the new common currency - called “Play4Free Funds” - without loss for the customer. Affected games and currencies are:
• Lord of Ultima - diamonds
• Battlefield Heroes - battlefunds
• Battlefield Play4Free - battlefunds

From January 18, 2012 all games will use Play4Free Funds as the virtual currency. More information has been posted on the respective games' websites at the time of change.

I wish, I was thinking of buying NFS the Run for a good online multiplayer racing game with at least moderate traffic & that's the only game I see that comes close lately, but God knows when they will shut that down depending on sales. Sad

Yeah, I've heard stuff about EA shutting down servers before, which led me to sell my Burnout: Revenge game for XBOX 360. Dodgy

EA put the servers back for Burnout Revenge only becausof a facebook page petition or this site: http://www.burnoutaholics.com/?q=node/2186#comments had a fit. For how long is anyone's guess.

RE: EA shutting down the leaderboards/online multiplayer of many games
By the way, EA Sports Active 2 had barely been out 17 months when EA shut down the website for leaderboards, goals & multiplayer (I assume like sessions on Your Shape). When it first came out, EA charged $100 for the EA Active Sports 2 & EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp for Wii because of the heart monitor & "extensive online support". Some users on the facebook page EA maintained http://www.facebook.com/EASPORTSActive complained they weren't given the choice to play a monthly subscription.
