Last week we asked our readers if they believed that it really took EA Maxis six months of development time to change SimCity from an online-only game to an offline game that supported modding. The majority of you weren't buying EA's claim.
Around 79 percent of the 204 votes cast said that they did not believe that it took EA six months to develop SimCity to run in an offline mode. Only around 21 percent said that they believed the statement.
Personally, we're not sure what the truth really is, but we do applaud EA for finally acknowledging that offline play is a very important part of the SimCity experience.
Hopefully EA has learned a lesson and the next SimCity title – whenever it comes – will just skip the always-on requirement altogether.
Thanks to everyone who voted in last week's poll. Look for a new one later this week.
