EA Takes Nine More Games Offline

Achievement hunters, beware! Electronic Arts is pulling the plug on nine more games with online components, titles like The Godfather, Def Jam: Icon and The Simpsons Game, which will go offline forever starting in March.

Some of those titles are going offline in certain regions only—Asia loses Army of Two on the PS3 in April—and for certain platforms—Mercenaries 2: World in Flames online support goes bye-bye in March. And three more of the games on this list are original Xbox titles, all of which are going offline in April. In some cases, that won't affect more than your leaderboards showing, but if you're still looking for online dependent achievements in Lord of the Rings: Conquest, you'd better make haste.

For the bad news, read on, Need for Speed: Carbon PSP players.
