Amazon Stops Selling Digital SimCity

Amazon.com has suspended sales of the downloadable version of SimCity due to connectivity issues with the game. The page carries the following note: "Many customers are having issues connecting to the "SimCity" servers. EA is actively working to resolve these issues, but at this time we do not know when the issue will be fixed. Please visit https://help.ea.com/en/simcity/simcity for more information." This note is also on the page for the boxed version, but this remains available for purchase. EA has announced they are adding servers to address connectivity and authentication issues that have plagued the game since launch, and the downloadable version currently has a one-star rating on Amazon based on 929 customer reviews. Thanks Ant via Geek.com via Slashdot.

Interesting. Did they stop selling WoW when it was blowing up after the launch?

Actually didn't WOW put a temporary hold on new accounts, when it first launched, due to huge demand? I thought they did, but I'm not finding the Blue's article on it...

They did stop selling the retail box for a short period of time, but that wasn't until a few months after it actually released (~3 if I recall, I forget). Guild Wars 2 did the same thing last year.
