Online Services End for 'Burnout Revenge,' 'MMA' and More EA Titles on April 13th

EA says the games they're discontinuing support for make up less than 1% of online players.

"As games get replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the older games dwindles to a level," says EA in a statement explaining the decision to end online services for some of their older titles. "it's no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running."

The full list is below. As EA said, there aren't really any huge losses here – just games that people don't really play anymore.

• 'BOOM BLOX Bash Party' (Wii)
• 'Burnout Revenge' (Xbox 360)
• 'EA Create' (PC, PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360)
• 'EA Sports Active 2.0' (PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360)
• 'EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp' (Wii)
• 'FIFA 10' (PlayStation Portable and Wii)
• 'The Godfather II' (PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360)
• 'EA Sports MMA' (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360)
• 'Need for Speed ProStreet' (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360)
• 'The Saboteur' - Midnight Club access (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360)
• 'Spare Parts' (PlayStation 3 Xbox 360)
