You may have noticed that since the launch of SimCity in the U.S there has been nothing but problems, with people unable to connect to download, or people even being cut off mid-game.
Well if you are in the UK and watching this drama unfold then EA says you needn't worry as it is "working non-stop to resolve."
Indeed the Origin twitter account stated that EA is "making changes to prevent further issues and are confident that Origin will be stable for international launches later this week."
SimCity's is yet another DRM game which means that the only way to play is to connect online. It's not the first game to experience launch issues, which makes you wonder why publishers don't look at alternative solutions (such as a staggered release or pre-loading) in order to solve these problems which are no doubt caused by high demand.
