As you can see, a very large number of games on many platforms will be losing online support, this is very disheartening news to many gamers.
 
EA has released an official statement along with the announcement of this list saying:
 
"Since GameSpy’s announcement, our teams have been working to evaluate options to keep services up and running. Unfortunately, due to technical challenges and concerns about the player experience, we do not have a solution at this time. Online services for EA games on the GameSpy platform will be closed down at the end of June."
 
You can see from this statement that EA is indeed working hard to keep at least some of these games online. Though some of these games were already set to lose their online support due to Nintendo discontinuing their Wi-Fi connection services
 
What do you think of this News? Will this change in service affect you? Leave us your thoughts in the comment section below.
 
Special thanks to @Zelda for showing me this news!

They already took Burnout Paradise's online servers down without any notice whatsoever... was so disappointed to find that out when I re-purchased the game last weekend after taking a two year break from it. That used to be my favorite game... I played it every day for something like 2 years before I got into Halo 3.

 

Also, I had a mini heart attack when I saw Green Day Rockband on that list. Luckily, it looks like they're only taking the Wii's servers down! Thank jeebus :D

A good chunk of those games are better SP than MP anyway.
