Games "Why has the SimCity story gone away? It's a good question. And the answer for it reveals much about how both the games industry, and the games journalism industry, work." Telling - not just for the game journalism, but all of it. As a sidenote, you can always rely on Rock Paper Shotgun to bring the best gaming news. Under-appreciated gem of online news reporting.

You know what? It is a call to arms. There's an abysmal difference between being an earlier adopter and expecting a few bugs in the game and being lied to your face. The worst part is that this is not the first time this fiasco happens. EA should have learned with what happened with Diablo III, for example.
EA had a rough estimate on the number of players based on the number of pre-orders. But why should they care? They already have the customers money on their pocket.
When I buy something I expected it delivered as advertised, the moment I bought it, not months later.
