SimCity Online Requirement Clarified/Corrected

An edit to GameSpy's New SimCity Preview backtracks from the statement that the upcoming return of the urban planning series will only be playable while online. The preview originally confirmed this now-debunked report before being fixed: "Yes, you will have to register an Origin account in order to play, and yes, you must be online at all times while playing in order to start playing. EA has confirmed that you will not be kicked out if your connection is interrupted."

How does requiring an internet connection every single time you play lead to better info to sell to third parties?


very simple, the level of authority they ask for while maintaining the connection allows them to harvest nearly everything they can scan. hell you don't even need to be attached to a computer to harvest a password, you can just be plugged into the same power bar at the time of login. what makes you think the dickless cowards at EA won't abuse whatever power they're given within your system? you're more of a conspiracy nut to think they won't as past evidence suggests they clearly will. companies like ea are the reason business ethics is an oxy moron.
