Yeah, I am working on my last achievement for Dirt1 (drive 1000 miles in career) and tried online for the heck of it and there was noone on at all. Course it had poor structure for head2head racing.

My favorite EA closing servers moment is when they got control of NFL2k5's servers when they got the ESPN deal and immediately shut them down. Bet they were itching for that as there was still alot of activity on the PS2 and xbox servers even though it was 3-4 years later.

There's 1000+ in NBA 07 lobbies. Get there quick if you need that achievement. I still need the other three NBA 07 online achievements and about thirty wins in Facebreaker if anyone needs those and wants to play/boost. Not a big booster, but since they're shutting down the servers before I got around to playing these (FB & NBA HC, I got NBA 07 to help reach 1,000) I'm down with it.

Update: Microsoft has announced that Xbox Live support for ALL original Xbox games will end on April 15. I take it that this includes the ability to download DLC so I for one will have to redownload the DLC for Splinter Cell onto my newly acquired OG Xbox. This shutdown is for all original xbox games including BC games playable on 360s AND Xbox Originals purchased on 360s. Reminds me that I still haven't played Doom 3 co-op.

Just to clarify, you can still play your BC XBox 1 games on the 360, but their Live functionality will be gone.

I bet you'll also be signed out of Live when you start one up.

Did I read right that original xbox titles that were bought on the 360 marketplace ie fable, halo will lose support? That doesn't seem right. I understand ending BC support by not bringing on new games but games purchased on the 360 still should be supported.

Right, sorry if that was unclear, but when I typed Xbox Live support I was referring to being able to play online and download DLC (most likely).

Once again sorry if that was unclear. No more online play for BC or originals or on the original xbox and most likely no more DLC downloading ability. I would think that BC game updates to enable BC compatability on the 360 would still work, but this has not been addressed yet.

The following is an important update regarding online service for Skate...aka OG Skate or Skate 1.
Servers for the skate.Reel feature will be shut down on March 1st, 2010. After this date, you may continue to play the game online but no longer able to capture video clips and upload them to the skate.Reel galleries, both in-game and on the skate website.
All of us at EA would like to thank you for your valued participation in our online gaming community and hope that your enthusiasm for Skate extends to Skate 2 and the upcoming Skate 3.
If you have further questions about your account or the shut down of these services, please visit http://support.ea.com.

Here we go again. So if anone needs help on skate Celebrity (the onlne achievement that really needs boosting at this point) I will help out and hopefully get the favor returned.

More EA servers going down! Like I posted earlier in the thread, they are shutting down games left and right in 2010:

March 16, 2010 Online Service Shutdown

Def Jam for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
Godfather for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
Lord of the Rings: Conquest for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
Simpsons for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360



Online Achievement info:
Def Jam - 8 for 315gs (an additional 15 for 185gs can be done solo or online, but are alot easier to just boost while you are going for your 200 wins)
Godfather - None
LotR Conquest - 10 for 310gs
Simpsons - None

Hail to Pitt!

I knew that if NBA Street was going down that Def Jam: ICON was going down. Hopefully I can start boosting Def Jam and the skate achievements this weekend so I can focus on other games that I know won't go offline anytime soon.

Thanks, Glock. Added to the OP. Bad time for me to be missing my 360 with an e74. Hopefully, it comes back soon. Seems like the choices of which game to play in my backlog is starting to get decided for me by EA.

Damn, LotR was just a little over a year old. I know it sucked, but still.

Wasn't Facebreaker just a little over a year old? And Def Jam isn't that old is it? What sucked about LoTR? I played the first three levels solo and it seemed ok, but not as epic as it should be since it was mp style of play.

Don't give up on Def Jam. If anything, it's making me go buy it as soon as possible. I'm willing to boost. Although I want to finish up on skate since we have two weeks vs. having a month for Def Jam.

Def Jam is pretty old - I waited years before buying it used, very cheaply. That said, it doesn't appear that I ever got around to playing it. I'll be in for the online stuff with anyone interested.

Got my 360 back and am looking to play Def Jam and LOTRC online. Also down for Dark Corners. I love hoarde mode, but haven't met the threshold for achievements on all maps yet. Some bc of my level.

Also, I edited this because it turns out I don't have skate after all. Guess I just have too many games. I remember getting it cheap at blockbuster awhile ago and checking it out and liking it, but that was around the time I had some games I wanted to unload to GS during a trade X get X and I probably used skate to get to the highest tier on a trade.

The only threatened skate achievement is the Celebrity one right? And maybe the post one reel and post six reels. Or did I miss something?

Hope eveybody finished up DJ and LOTRC as needed. I knocked out LOTRC, but didn't have it in me to go for 200 wins in DJ. Tried it out tonight and got beat down 5 out of 5 times by people who play a decent amount. The single player seemed better to me when I tried it and I liked it somewhat. Guess I shoulda started working on DJI sooner. no biggie. Not sure if servers close at the start of the day or end of the day or somewhere in between.

Any guesses for the next round of closures? I'm gonna guess that Burnout Revenge (old and well received sequel), Battlefield 2 (old), LOTR BFME (old), Bad Company 1 (well received sequel may make it unnecessary), and Army of Two (already closed in Japan) will be sooner than later. I haven't tried any of these online yet, so for all I know they have decent followings still. Just guesses.

Battlefield Modern Combat is definitely a no-brainer. I'm surprised it's not gone already. The community for Bad Company is still pretty active. I play everyday, and there are always a bunch of games going on with 20+ people in them.

Glad to hear BC1 is still active as that game's on my to play soon list, hopefully, that will keep it off the chopping block for a bit.

Didn't know you were looking to play LOTRC, or I woulda recruited you when we were playing this. Just so you know, I was gonna recruit Kefka, but he's got all 1000 points on this. If the servers aren't closed tonite I may be able to help you out.

BTW, we played this with a full room or two thru several matches and all types and it was a pretty fun game. Too bad as it's not like there's another similar game out there. I get the feeling that most people who didn't like it were disappointed that the single player felt more like mp with bots than a true epic battle.

This is kinda why I hesitate slightly about buying EA games because I know eventually the games servers will be closed. Although I don't own any of them games, but I would of maybe picked up LOTR sometime in the future when its super cheap.
