SimCity Launch A Natural Disaster

SimCity 5 - or as Electronic Arts likes to call it, "SimCity" is out.  In that you can buy it; it's far less certain that you'll be able to play it, or even that you'll want to.

All of which was predicted by everyone, and was entirely avoidable.  And happened anyway, because people are dumb.

1 By the way, good job! I haven't seen a single spam since you made your fix!

2 Also, the limits mentioned in your second comment sound HORRIBLE, and like it's not even worth looking for a warezed version, which I wasn't going to do anyway.

3 I enjoyed the heck out of earlier games, but eh, I have no desire to try this one.

EA made a lot of money from The Sims, probably more than anyone ever made on SimCity proper. So instead of making SimCity, they made SimsCity, thinking that people really wanted the latter instead of the former. They are being... disabused (hopefully - after all, "severs are so busy that people can't play" can also be spun internally as "sales exceeding all expectations", and it's not like it's easy to get a bloody refund.)

Seriously, it doesn't pay to get games on release these days.
