In addition to shutting down a few older titles back in January, EA are now terminating the online portion of more recent PS3 and Xbox 360 games. When you control your own servers as a publisher, this is well within your rights, I’m sure.
On March 16, expect to lose online functionality for Def Jam, Godfather, Lord of the Rings: Conquest, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames (PC), Need for Speed: Carbon, Need for Speed: ProStreet (PSP), and The Simpsons Game. A month later sees the end of Burnout 3 (for PS2) and Army Of Two (in Asian regions).
Just about to buy Lord of The Rings Conquest, were you? You’d better be quick.
