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.

Arenanet did exactly this with Guild Wars 2. People that pre-ordered the game got access to betas and server stress tests pre-launch, and then they got a 3 day head start to play before the "official" release date.

So how did that work out?
