Games So, SimCity has been released - the fifth instalment in this venerable series of fantastic games. However, just as everyone suspected, the game has been completely ruined by the always-online DRM. So much so, in fact, that Amazon has ceased selling the game. Update: and it's only getting worse - EA has suspended all marketing efforts for SimCity, and has asked third parties to do the same. Wow.

The only thing, and I mean the only thing, companies will listen to is people spending money elsewhere.

If people keep paying for it - they feel like the sh** it tolerable, live DVD region coding, or the CD I bought kwhich doesn't play on my kitchen cd player because of anti-piracy damage (looking at you Sony).
