EA Pulling Rock Band From App StoreBy: Richard Stalker - May 2, 2012
a lot a couple of people angry today at EA for announcing in an in app popup that the game will go offline on May 31st and will no longer be available to play, even to those people who payed $5.99 for the app. There are a ton of people pissed at EA for this practice in general because EA seems to be using the app store as a rental service.
This is not the first time that EA has pulled an app from the store. Earlier in the year they pulled Battlefield 3: Aftershock for being crappy, and they pulled “The Simpsons: Tapped Out” for basically being so popular that the servers were getting bogged down and no one could play the game.
There is no real word from EA as to why they are doing this, but they must know that this is why they were recently voted as the worst company in America. Right?
This is the photo I grabbed from Reddit, it goes without saying that they are pissed:
