EA to stop online support for six PSP games

Starting September 1st, EA will officially shut down servers for the following online-enabled PSP titles:

  • FIFA Soccer 06

  • FIFA World Cup 2006

  • Fight Night Round 3

  • Madden NFL 06

  • NBA Live 06

In addition, Need for Speed Most Wanted will go offline starting November 1st. It looks like those of you that need an online racing fix might need to consider an alternative (like Test Drive Unlimited?). Unfortunately, it's commonplace for games to lose online support after a few years. Considering EA's love of making their franchises annual, it seems like they're really urging you to buy a new version of one of their products.
