prob not enough people playing those games online. but yeah still imagine f someone was to just buy MPV 07 lol they better pull thses games off the rack soon, and it will be false advertising if they dont.. Im sure they wont tell people before they buy the game that online play is going to be discontinued... theses game show be seeing a huge pricce drop soon and pulled off the shelfs September 1st otherwise everyone should go buy one and sue for false advertising.

edit: damm u quick typers dippy you beat me by 3 mins lol.

Most games have a disclaimer on the online component saying online support may be removed at any point in time.
