So thanks to IGN, we now know that EA has released a statement on this and it turns out to be false. The message was sent by mistake… Sure it was. I smell damage control.
“Rock Band for iOS will remain live – the in-app message users received yesterday was sent in error. We apologize for the confusion this caused. We’re working to clarify the issue that caused the error and will share additional information as soon as possible.”
So the other day we told you how EA/Playfish was killing Restaurant City, now it’s Rock Band for iPhone reports MacRumors. Oh and if you still have the game on your iPhone and think you’ll still be able to play it, guess again. $$$ down the drain.
EA is telling owners of Rock Band for iPhone that as of May 31, the game will “no longer be playable on your device.” Most users probably expect that a game they paid $4.99 for — and that is still on sale, with no suggestion that the game will be useless in a month — wouldn’t suddenly stop working, especially when Rock Band offers a number of song packs as in-app purchases.
