Online Service Shutdown of Carbon and ProStreet for PSP Wednesday, 17.02.2010
Electronic ArtsNeed for Speed is still being played over the internet. As long as enough players are online, EA keeps the multiplayer servers up and running, but for Need for Speed Carbon and Need for Speed ProStreet on Playstation Portable it'll come to an end: the shutdown for the online services of both games on PSP is scheduled for March 16th, 2010.

Another racing game, Burnout 3: Takedown, is going down too: on April 15th 2010 the online services for Playstation 2 and Xbox will be shut down.

For more information regarding the shutdowns, read this statement from EA:
As background information, the games scheduled for shutdown in March and April 2010 represent less than 0.3% of all peak online players across all EA titles. Despite some people's perception, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these older games up and running. We would rather our hard-working engineering and IT staff focus on keeping a positive experience for the other 99.7% of customers playing our more popular games. These decisions to retire games is never easy. The EA development teams and operational staff pour their hearts into these games almost as much as the customers playing them and it is hard to see one retired. We hope you have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of the games and we appreciate your ongoing patronage.
