I'm hoping it's a typo on Madden 09, and they meant 08.

Madden 10 is the newer version...09 should be phased out. Plus, it's for XBOX 1, Wii, PC...not 360 or PS3
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

No, it is also PS3 and 360, look at the bottom of the Feb list. Madden 07 stays on until April for PS3.

And according to this list, Madden 08 stays on 360 and PS3. That's why I'm hoping its a typo. I know 10 is out, but would it really hurt them to keep the servers running for the current version and one before?

EA's games do state in the manual that online support could end at any time, unanounced or otherwise. At least they posted the news.

The fact that Madden 08 is still currently active online surprised me since there have been 2 iterations since.
