SimCity: Proving Always-Online DRM Doesn’t Work

"People knew a problem would arise even before the game released, but SimCity still managed to cause a big ruckus when it launched due in large part to requiring gamers to be always connected online while playing. " | Explosion.com (EA, PC, SimCity, Wii)

i agree i never will either some people just dont have any control over themselves and will anyways. remind me of all the sheep who followed hitler or allowed slavery. oh i just couldnt help myself i needed slaves man. or its so cool to be part of this and fun lets turn a blind eye to the killing so we can sleep at night. where i grow up you dont do things that in the long run will screw you and other over its pretty simple concept to apply to everything and not just for real life death.

Comparing DRM to Hitler to and or slavery!?! So you think if you don't buy into DRM you'll get a visit from the SS and or lose your freedom and forced to pick cotton?

DRM will be the norm in a few years. Either go with the flow, pirate or walk away from gaming. If it works what's the problem?

And this didn't work with one of the most respected Series in all of gaming...

Imagine what will happen with lesser titles.
