EA’s free game may not make everything better for SimCity players

From the article, "SimCity is a level 5 disaster. Demand has overtaxed servers, keeping people from playing and causing multiple errors. Fans are displeased with the smaller city sizes, focus on region development and inability to make a megalopolis. There are a lot of hurt feelings, and you can't blame the gamers who are upset. They just spent $59.99 on a broken game, they have a right to be mad. EA's attempting to make things better by adding more servers and now by offering people a free game. On March 18, 2013, a mass email is going to be sent out giving people a PC game from Origin. But is that enough?" (PC, SimCity)

EA will only learn if you boycott their products... Or sue for bait and switch.

This is a lesson to the companies that wants block second hand games and require permanent internet connection. Always-online DRM SUCKS¡

Such a disaster.

I'm sorry but the people who were pro-microtransactions and other B.S. tactics like this deserve this. This is why you should be opposed to everything EA is doing. You don't have a right to be mad if the only thing you're going to complain about is that you can't play a game after you SHOULD have been complaining about the existence of always-on DRM to begin with. People who support this garbage have no right to whine about it after EA's tactics work against you as a consumer. Quite frankly, everyone should have seen this coming.

Is it going to be a free game that everyone WANTS?

make it free to play seen like the only way for them to get their consumers faith back, and for those who bought the game. Give them a free game.
