EA shutting down 50 titles including classic Battlefield, Medal of Honor, Crysis, Star Wars
GameSpy announced earlier this month that they would be ending all hosted services for games, which impacts the online capabilities of a number of older titles, including some from EA.
Since GameSpy’s announcement, our teams have been working to evaluate options to keep services up and running.  Unfortunately, due to technical challenges and concerns about the player experience, we do not have a solution at this time. Online services for EA games on the GameSpy platform will be closed down at the end of June.
We know some of these games are still fan favorites, including Battlefield 2, Battlefield 1942, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and Command & Conquer games. We are still investigating community-supported options to preserve online functionality for these titles, such as multiplayer. Significant technical hurdles remain, and at this time we don’t have anything to announce.

Disney Abandons Star Wars 1313 Trademark
Disney failed to renew the title’s trademark, which officially asphyxiates any remaining hope.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office currently classifies Star Wars 1313 as “Abandoned because no Statement of Use or Extension Request timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued.”
Obviously, Disney and EA could revive the trademark, but the fact that they let it expire proves that the game isn’t on the radar. Last June, EA teased a brand new Battlefront sequel, which is scheduled to hit the market in 2015, and the publisher is already handling Star Wars: The Old Republic. So, it’s probably safe to assume that EA isn’t going to throw 1313 back into the mix.

Al Pacino Almost Played Han Solo in Star Wars
The actor said he revealed that he was first offered the part before it went to Harrison Ford. So why didn’t he take it? Here’s what he said.
"It was mine for the taking, but I didn’t understand the script."
Pacino also said that he turned down leading roles in Pretty Woman and Apocalypse Now. He also went on to describe the Godfather trilogy as “a long, awful, tiring story.”
