EA To Shut Down The Last of Playfish's Library

EA announced that it will be closing down the remaining Facebook titles on Playfish's roster, meaning that the likes of SimCity Social, The Sims Social, Pet Society, and more will be closing by mid-June.

A series of Playfish forum posts from one of EA's community managers has revealed that SimCity Social, The Sims Social, and Pet Society will all be shut down on June 14th.

Sports tie-ins Madden NFL Superstars 11 & 12 and NHL Superstars will both be closed down a month earlier on May 14th.

"We know that you may be disappointed by this," read part of the statement about SimCity Social. "Retiring games is never easy, we hope you've enjoyed playing SimCity Social as much as we enjoyed making it. Thank you to all of our passionate and dedicated players for supporting SimCity Social. We hope to see you in some of our other titles on Facebook and other platforms."

The reaction on the forums has not exactly been a happy one, with many disgruntled gamers unhappy having spent real money on these social games. [via GII]

I stand corrected, there are some really sad people out there who are now upset and sad. Real money on the sims? o_0
