    Screw EA. Sega Sports has eclipsed them as far as sports games go, and if it wasn't for FIFA and BF1942, I wouldn't play any EA game. They can stay with the GC and PS2 for all I care.

    Honestly...I think Sony has their hands deep into EAs pockets. That is why they are only online with PS2.

    Don't even get me started on NCAA Football 2003. I play it a fair amount, but my roomate plays it like a junkie plays EverCrack.

    Great game though; Sega can definitely improve their college sports games.

    Somehow, in this case - I don't think a petition is going to work...
    But I'll sign it anyways [​IMG]

    It needs to be worded in a less hostile way. It simply needs to communicate that customers are not happy with EA's business decisions. That this affects their buying decisions to the detriment of EA's bottomline. The rant on the petition seems childish and detracts from what I feel like are the main points.

    I signed it. It isn't the Magna Carta, but every little bit of pressure helps. If it can get BF1942 back on the Xbox, I'd sign 20 petitions.

    I just signed it too. My comments were "support xbox live and I will support EA. If not, then I won't be buying your games." That's pretty much to the point I would say...

    I browze a couple of other forums and have the mushroom started there as well.

    The emails to EA can't hurt either.

    If the emails are worded in a similiar fashion to the petition, they might just.

    The only good thing Eidos does is publish Ion Storm games, which are mainly geared towards single player.

    Or is everyone supposed to be upset that we'll never see versions of Chicken Run and Eve of Extinction with XBL support?

    How much say does the publisher really have though? If Ion Storm decided that it REALLY wanted to put Deus Ex 2 on XBL, could Eidos say no?

    As Eidos own Ion Storm, I'd reckon they have final say... Someone has to pay the bills for the dev time it'd take to implement it. I'm sure Ion Storm have independence from Eidos, but how much?

    As JamesH mentioned, they're primarily (only) single player games - Eidos "dropping" XBL support isn't going to impact those two projects.
