I would think it was Maxis' decision, not EAs. Maxis makes craploads of money and is allowed to operate however they feel is appropriate.

I'm not sure that I agree. EA is larger and also are known for their "always on" DRM habits. Granted, it could be that the "always on" DRM worked nicely in to Maxis's plan for a Sim City MMO, but I'm not so sure.

This is kinday fishy.

16 per post and this guy alone has made 780 posts which comes in total over 12k? Don't really buy it.

That's $0.16 not $16. So $0.16 * 780 = $124.80

A lot cheaper than creating a decent product.

How are you guys missing that the first post was edited to mention it's a satire website?
