Submission + - EA admits SimCity launch was dumb, offers players a free game (geek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The SimCity launch earlier this week was a complete disaster. Single player games that require an Internet connection to enable forced multiplayer features (as well as acting as a form of DRM) is bad enough, but then to not be prepared for the demand such a popular franchise has, well, that’s just dumb, and Lucy Bradshaw, EA’s general manager for the Maxis Label, has admitted exactly that.

A also thinks, quite rightly, that they need to apologize to players. So, anyone who activates a copy of SimCity by March 18 will be entitled to a free game from EA’s portfolio.
