Hacker can edit, tweak or destroy anyone’s metropolis in SimCity

YouTube user UKAzzer has found a way to edit, tweak or destroy any user’s city in SimCity, effectively bypassing EA’s DRM and giving him the ability to wreak havoc on anyone’s saved city. (PC, SimCity)

How long has the game been out? How much more of a hit can EA take over this?

Sadly, for anyone who loves gaming and was a big fan of Sim City 4...
... this travesty of a release is still selling very very well.

So despite all the 'always online' crap, despite the DLC-milking that's already been announced, despite the smaller cities, and despite the horrible launch and other bugs and stuff that's just crap, EA can just shrug their shoulders, look at the sales, and say: "Hey, we did OK!"

.... which is ofcourse horrible.

More like rebuilding them into pornographic shapes.

ha ha, indeed

people will log in be like wtf how did that strip club get there

Thinking more of having buildings grouped into boobs or a face, the streets phallic so that traffic is - coming and going all over the place.

Really, your icon's the Joker and all you can come up with is dropping a strip club or two here or there?

Shame.

Game sounding a bit more interesting now oddly enough... where can I buy it?!

People are taking this the wrong way, this guy is finding out glitches, and not releasing them to people, because he is expecting EA/Maxis to fix it. Take it that way guys, not everyone's city is going to get destroyed over the next few days..

Uh, he's giving warning that the hack is easy to do. That others will do it.
