I didn't buy Sim City because it had always online DRM and a complete mess of a launch which still isn't resolved today.

There was also the fact that Sim City is £40+ and most PC games from most PC devs/publishers are £25-30. Only the greedy few are pricing PC games at console prices.

The most popular future franchises will start using it, because despite our whining, we'll still day-one the crap out of them.
