EA's "We're Sorry About SimCity" Games Announced
We just got an interesting E-mail from EA, announcing the list of games those unfortunate enough to buy SimCity, will get as a token of gratitude and apology. You bought the game (before Mach 26), you endured the torture, so you get a free game of your choice.
"Our SimCity Mayors are incredibly important to the team at Maxis. We sincerely apologize for the difficulties at launch and hope to make it up to you with a free PC game download from Origin. We'll be opening up the redemption portal country-by-country so some of you may see it a little sooner than others. The portal will be live worldwide for everyone to select their game by March 22."
The list of games you can choose ONE from, contains the following titles:
- Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
- Bejeweled 3
- Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition)
- Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition)
- Medal of Honor Warfighter (Standard Edition)
- Need For Speed Most Wanted (Standard Edition)
- Plants vs. Zombies
- SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition
"We're humbled by your patience and passion for the game. Thanks for building something very special with us, together."
So does this seem like a befitting band-aid to your hurt feelings? Will one of these games cover the damages caused? Either way, be sure to redeem the title of your choice before 07.00 GMT on March 31, 2013. Because after that, it's time to stop weeping over the issues SimCity has caused you, according to EA.
