ahriirii replied to your post: Pet Society Closure?

WHAT. BUT I LOVE THAT GAME. I STILL PLAY IT. WHY

seems pretty crappy of them to me x_x. I was active on the official PS forums for awhile and there was -a lot- of Playfish Cash trading going on. I saw people spending -a lot- of money on certain things in -just that game-, and its not the only one they’re closing x_X.

I think things for Pet Society have slowed down a lot, but they didn’t manage development very well after EA purchased it and it started losing members i think. However I feel EA is making a bad move by pissing so many people off that -still play- and now wont want to play any of their other games in fear of the same thing occurring out of the blue.

I guess they have so much money and own so many things they just dont give a crap
