Positioning SimCity as an MMO would've justified always-online: EA

In a bid to justify the always-online design of SimCity, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau has said that the game has always had an MMO feel to it, and that positioning it as an MMO would have made the always-online nature of the game easier for players to get behind. (EA, PC, SimCity)

Really because playing the old SimCity games made me feel I was investing my time in a fun, addictive single player game

Yeah, Sim City always had all the hallmarks of an MMO. What a perceptive statement from an industry leader.

Organizing raids with your guild, the separate origins and campaigns for classes/races, pvp, teamspeak, a subscription model and weekly content updates. Among all those other hallmarks.

Wait a minute.....

Maybe he meant - " if the servers break you're SOL" or " they're both played on computers, with a mouse and keyboard".
