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.

I can confirm that I have first hand experience of companies doing this kind of online "influencing" .. be it in forums, shopoing site reviews, etc ...

Seriously - it happens. For real.
