SimCity’s vice president says the servers are improving, and offers a free game for our troubles


The vice president of SimCity claims that the reasoning behind the server issues for the latest SimCity game is because “a lot more people logged on than expected”. While she also claims that the servers have improved “120%”, she also admits that people are still having server issues.

While the option for refunds have not been mentioned, vice president Lucy Bradshaw tells us that people who have activated their game before March 18th will receive an email on how to redeem a free EA game, for their troubles.


I was five years old when I played my very first videogame: 'Super Mario All Stars + Super Mario World' (on the Super Nintendo.) Although, that was back in 1996, during the beginning of the Nintendo 64 timeline. Thus began my trend of always being one console behind. I owned a Nintendo 64 during the days of Xbox and PlayStation 2; and I owned a Game Boy Color during the prime of the Game Boy Advance. It was only until recently that I have started keeping up to date with the current console timeline. I bought an Xbox 360 during it's launch, and it is my gaming platform to this very day. Now hoping to someday own a PlayStation Vita, and a non-craptastic PC, I am also hoping to keep up with the gaming industry from this point forward. That is, until I become too old to care to keep up with technology. Or until I'm too old to remember my name, or something like that. You know, looking on the bright side of things.
