I only started playing online with Mario Kart Wii, and even then it took me until December 2009 to work out how to connect my Wii wirelessly to my internet. I've never been into that whole headset scene.

My fear is when publishers (like EA) start switching off servers for online games - all that data, lost!

It's a shame a lot of online games and/or modes tend to live or die by their communities. I never did get an online game of Perfect Dark XBLA going just because no one was playing the thing online by the time I got round to purchasing it. Same goes for Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts.

For an online gaming-related rant, Ridge Racer Vita certainly takes the biscuit - but I'll save that for a dedicated thread on that game over at the PS subsection forum.

It's pretty much a combination of how popular & the expense of running a server which determines if it stays on or not, sequels for games comes into as well which is why we are seeing the MH Tri servers close a month after MH3U's release.
