Electronic Arts will not be happy to learn that Amazon has officially resorted to taking down the game off of their US section of the site. The reason is the constant complaints about the game and consistent negative reviews from angry buyers.
The SimCity game was launched in North America just c couple of days ago and has since been consistently slow for gamers. Download speeds have taken far too long leaving numerous fans fuming. We’ve been covering this story for a couple of days now, and things have just got a whole lot worse for EA after this revelation tonight.
The problem with having issues as soon as the video game is released, is the first destination gamers will go is Amazon. The negativity has just proved too much for the online retailer and now they’ve have to pull the plug on SimCity in the US.
The European version comes out in just under half an hours time, EA will hope that this type of impact does not repeat itself once again.
