The SimCity beta won’t help to win over the anti-DRM crowd

For some people, being always-online is basically the worst thing since sliced Hitler. Worse, even. And so, the SimCity beta was Maxis’ big chance to win over these people. To show them exactly why their vision for a persistently-connective shared sim space was a good one.

Crucially, Maxis missed that opportunity. (PC, SimCity)

I will never buy anything that is always online as a matter of principle!
