How is it that Gamespy is able to keep the server for the much older Hot Pursuit 2 still running, but EA has to shut down it's servers for the older games?
Surely they don't have to shut them down for money reasons. They just don't care to keep them up. It's really sad but EA just doesn't give a fuck about their older games once a newer part is released in the same series, even if some people still love the old ones.
Thanksfully ProStreet has a lan mode (like Most Wanted does), so there are still ways to play it online if you really want to. Most Wanted is still played quite a bit these days by people using virtual lan tools like GameRanger, Tunngle and Hamachi.
What bothers me much more is Carbon because there will be no way at all to play that one without the official EA servers, so I will be really sad when they decide to put these ones down.
I only played it very recently and it's still a great game and a lot of fun to play online with other people of your skill level. I hope I can still create some videos of awesome online races before EA kills the game.
Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.

Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:

Tonnzzaah (PC/PS4/SoonPS5&XSX): Welp. My Xbox 360 quit (well, the laser head quit), so I guess I need to start saving for XSX, so I can keep playing the 360 games I have, plus finally get some newer Xbox exclusives...
