Hey! Why don't you make it online only. We see how well that worked out for you! Pfft jackasses!
The disastrous launch of SimCity is over and done with. Emerging from the wreckage with two million sales and counting, Electronic Arts is considering allowing the game to be played offline like many of us originally wanted. Speaking to GamesBeat, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said what we were thinking: that the backlash resulted, at least partially, in The Sims 4 being announced as a "single-player, offline experience."
"In the last few months, we have started making changes to the business practices that gamers clearly don't like," said Gibeau. "In the spring, we dropped our online pass program for consoles -- both next-generation and current-generation. We listened to the feedback on SimCity and decided that The Sims 4 would be built as a single-player, offline experience."
Christ what a tool, SimCity was a clusterfuck of huge epic proportions and their business practices were only half the reason why. The other half being that the game sucked fat smelly donkey balls.
Even now (I sadly own it) the traffic simulation is completely fucked up because of the highway and the way they implemented it. Doesn't help that dump trucks can hold up entire city worth of traffic because of their stop-and-go-over-taking dance.
As you say, a clusterfuck of epic proportions.. ;/
