New SimCity Only Playable Online

The upcoming continuation of the SimCity series will require a constant internet connection to play, reports Joystiq. They have confirmed that the game will be sold through digital distributors other than Origin, but lead designer Stone Librande tells them players will need to be connected to EA's online service to play, even in single-player. Word is: "The always-on connection becomes necessary with the game's emphasis on multiplayer and regional impact, and the use of a global economy that all players can influence."

I think the corporations are just going to say "our lack of vision is not the cause in the rise of piracy." and therefore simply piracy itself gets even more heat, and then nothing changes except for the fact of the rise in piracy, and thus the Mark of The Beast arrives in several years.
