How Far is too Far? I Gamers Association

Are gamers holding hardware and software developers to a high enough standard?

As midnight approached Monday night, many gamers waited in anticipation for the release of the new SimCity. When midnight struck, excited gamers started downloading and installing SimCity with the hope of many hours of city building over then next several hours and days. As many started playing, heavy traffic to EA’s servers caused many connectivity issues. Since SimCity has on-line all the time DRM, this locked a lot of players out, even in single player mode.
