impossible to play online

21 posts in this topic

Hello, i can't play online, It says that it is trying to retrieve the EA Terms and Conditions. But then it tells me it's unable to retrieve the EA Terms and Conditions. I can't go online without accepting the terms and conditions! What do I do?

I guess the game is giving you a last chance before you try to start it and sync an unobtainable game on your list. It is unobtainable because of belt trophy blockers right now, so save yourself the trouble and avoid the game now.

And anyone who calls it OCD is disrespecting the struggles a person who really has OCD is facing.

The real answer to this issue might be that you have to accept EA's old terms on a different game. Mercenaries 2 has an issue similar to this and the way you can fix that is to play an old EA game and accept the terms on that one. Games such as Battlefield Bad Company and Medal of Honor: Airborne allow you to accept EA's old terms, so if you have those games try to accept the old terms on them and see if FNR4 works after that.

THANK YOU.

 

Wanting to plat a game and not being able to function are two entirely different things.

EA was one of the first companies to implement forced DRM bullshit.

 

The Sims, the original game, is one of my all time favorite titles. Spent countless hours on it. However EA, being the publisher, made it so you were required to input a long code in order to even install the game. Didn't have that code? You were fucked. So not only did you have to accept terms, you had to input what was considered back then a form of copyright protection, since it was a time when people burned music CDs and DVDs from their friends so they wouldn't have to pay the products.

 

I recall a number of other games from the 2000s that had this crap as well. EA has been a pile of shit for 15 years now. Activision, Ubisoft, Bethesda and others basically followed in EA's footsteps, which has lead to the crap you see today.

@PLATINIUMGAMEUR I think I've found the solution to your problem with this game... The solution is for you to the game: SSX online and accept the terms on that game, they are the same terms as Fight Night Round 4 and do load up on that game, once you do that then Fight Night Round 4 should work.

Are people really complaining about a game that was released TEN years ago? Why do you even bother?

I mean, NES Tetris is over 30 years old and gets people hyped up for a tournament and that gets millions of views every year. People can enjoy old games and there was no official announcement given for this game shutting down, when you pay for a product and it says "Online multiplayer" there should always be a warning prior to it being fucked. I hate seeing this kind of response because you're neglecting the fact that people can enjoy old games if they want to and a lot of old games still get attention from die-hard fans in the community.

  1. Tetris is not an online game
  2. Tetris is not an EA game
  3. You cannot expect a game from 2009 still have working online functions.

EA did develop a Tetris game in 2008 <3! There are many online iterations of Tetris and when a game has never had an announcement for its shutdown, someone can go online on the game and see if it works online, but maybe they shouldn't be surprised if the game isn't how it used to be. However, I don't see why you had to come here and bitch about someone asking a question about this game when it has nothing to do with you. You only came here to rub salt in the wound because they're having trouble getting online by giving the generic killjoy response that I've seen hundreds of times before. And there are plenty of old games that have communities who play it online together, World of Warcraft is a game that was released in 2004 and still has working online functions, so you can expect some games from 2009 to have working online functions.

It was 2006. The PS3 version - which I happen to own -  came out in 2010 and cannot be played online anymore since 2012. Because that's what this shithole of a company does: Shut down servers less than two years after a game's release. That's my whole point here. You should be very glad that the mighty masters at EA obviously forgot that they ever published some boxing games and subsequently forgot to turn off that servers as well.

Until 2018, EA had gone over 5 years without shutting a server on PSN. But instead of pissing people off with server shutdowns, they went ahead and added microtransactions that were absurdly expensive for a lot of their games and broke features that were tied to trophies such as live events or uploading media to the servers. Sony should be your example of mass server shutdowns since they've had an itchy trigger finger regarding their shutdown habits. Regardless, people could also post about games that don't work as a heads-up to people who may be interested in buying the game. But until it is confirmed by the community people can assume the online still works. Fight Night Round 4 doesn't affect me, I have had the platinum for over 5 years now and the online still works on my main account. The issue the game has right now is that it fails to load up the ToS for new players, but for people who already played the game in the past it works perfectly fine and the solution for someone to fix this issue is to accept the terms on SSX.

The OP doesn't even own that game. And if he'd buy this game used, the exact same problem would occur there as well. Great solution. ;)

The game has been used as a solution for people who have this exact problem with Fight Night Champion. EA doesn't use online passes anymore so the game would work online, not to mention that they might own it because it was on PS+ a few years ago. Just because a game isn't on someone's trophy list doesn't mean they don't have it.

Please stay on topic.

 

The topic was started because the OP wanted to play this title online but couldn’t.


An on-topic solution was provided: accept the online terms in SSX. The OP has been provided a possible solution.
