Friendly reminder that beginning in about 30 minutes, Xbox 360 Achievements.org is staging one last run on NBA Live 07's "Online with 1,000 People" achievement. This is the last chance to do it before EA shuts down the servers on Tuesday.
The boosting session starts at 1 p.m. U.S. Eastern/10 a.m. U.S. Pacific. Trueachievements.com said 217 people had joined the boosting session as of an hour ago. Basically, all you need to do is have a copy of NBA Live 07 and hang out in a lobby - not play an online game - the same time as 1,000 other people are signed in. Specific instructions on what is required may be found here.
They tried this back in October but it didn't work, so it's now or never. I'll update this post with news of whether they pulled it off.
[Update] I'm getting word they have more than 1,100 in the lobby. I'll try to confirm the final numbers. This event will be running for another 90 minutes, so if you have the game, it's an easy 100 Gamerscore, just sign in. [updated 11:30 am MST]
Final Update, 12:30 p.m. MST: Xbox360Achievements.org confirms that the boosting was indeed a success. "The achievement popped for everyone an hour early and the numbers were above 1,000 for a couple of hours then, so plenty of people got the chance to net it."
