games.on.net - The SimCity beta wonít help to win over the anti-DRM crowd.
I get that itís a beta. It has the word ĎBETAí stamped on it in about fifteen thousand different places. I understand that the multiplayer possibly ó almost definitely ó isnít ready for public consumption yet. Thatís fine. EAís server team were no doubt working overtime on ironing out the kinks in their connectivity, and a fine job they did too. But the damage, for many, was probably already done.

With its one hour time limit and non-existent online capabilities, the SimCity we saw on the weekend isnít the one that is going to help Maxis win over the anti-DRM crowd. If anything, itís just going to push them further into their holes.
