SimCity is now available on Amazon...again

Previously pulled game returns


SimCity is finally here, and to say EA has had a disastrous launch is an understatement. Among connection issues due to its always-on DRM scheme, EA has also reportedly denied customers refunds.

As a result of this maelstrom of madness, Amazon pulled SimCity from its storefront to account for the massive amount of refunds it was issuing.

Now, the game is back and ready to be purchased, with a giant warning below the product page, noting, "many customers are having issues connecting to the SimCity servers. EA is actively working to resolve these issues, but at this time we do not know when the issue will be fixed."

In case you hadn't heard, this game has issues.
