The question is, is 4.0 ready for it?

If I already own some or all of these games, what's new about these?
The 17 titles have been updated to work for Windows 7 and Windows Vista. In addition, since they are now playable via Origin, you will be able to utilize many of the Origin features such as cloud saves.



lol.

I don't understand how they can ethically sell this product considering they took the online servers off for some of those games years ago (Ra2 and YR)...

your buying half a product and they aren't informing you.

It said on first decade that on-line play wasn't available for all games.

xwis manage the servers for TS, ra2 and yuri's. Another company manages ra. All are playable online.

I'll probably buy this, even though I have the first decade Razz

Well, they do still have single player, but yeah, the dumbass would be the people buying it if it were anyone's fault. Because all EA is going to do off of this deal is make money (unless they actually put an effort into "Updated for Windows 7 and Windows Vista" which would most certainly cost some money to go back though all that old code and figure out how it all worked, get it to use TCP instead of IPX etc.).

Not that I won't be one of those dumbasses buying the games I already own over again. Another CD key can never hurt.
