Due to lack of activity, there are quite a few game servers shutting down on April 13th. EA Sports MMA is one of the games included on the list, which might raise a few eyebrows.
The game has been out for roughly a year and a half and required an Online Pass for multiplayer. Anyone buying a used copy, had to cough up another $10.00 to access the feature.
Is it fair to the consumer to shut down online services for a game that is roughly 18 months old?
Below is a list of games that will be affected.
