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."

They haven't spelled out all the details for the online component, but I fail to put any stock in your conspiracy theory that it's all bullshit.

Good thing I didn't post a conspiracy theory then, although EA is nearly as well known as Ubisoft for experimenting with various anti-piracy methods. It's either a poll at runtime to populate some MP related data or its a piracy check. There is very little in between that would require that functionality. It's bullshit because they could very easily let the player just say "no thanks I dont want MP data in my game" and be done with it.

I don't think its the end of the universe like some people but I agree that its just another example of pirates likely getting a more hassle free experience than paying customers.
