Gamers Turn To FTC With New SimCity Petition Aimed At Protecting Consumers

Forbes - In a story that continues to draw the ire of PC gamers, despite the positive reviews the game itself is getting from the media; there’s a new petition by gamers to help prevent future SimCity launch debacles from ever happening again. Care2.com, which has over 22 million active members, has stepped into the online game battle with a new petition that’s aimed at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

The petition has garnered over 21,000 signatures in just over a week and continues to gather grass roots support. Rather than just focusing on Electronic Arts and its botched launch of SimCity, this petition is taking a look at Digital Rights Management (DRM) from the perspective of paying gamers. (EA, Maxis, PC, SimCity)
