It seems like SimCity is just full of bad news. SimCity has received a lot of negative feedback for its ridiculous Always-On DRM feature. At first, EA stated that the Always-On DRM was added mainly because of security issues, but now its saying that it was added because the developers envisioned SimCity as "always-connected". Lucy Bradshaw, the General Manager of EA's Maxis label, stated that they had designed SimCity "with multiplayer in mind". By having the always-connected feature, they were able to create essentially an MMO.
