EA cancelled.

Last week the senior Vice President of internal sales and marketing had a cardiac arrest when he learned of this promotion. He was kept stable in intensive care this past week but has unfortunately relapsed and passed away today.

Out of respect, EA cancelled their plans.

I would totally take Sim City for a friend. Is this real?^^

Can you gift the games? Get SimCity and gift it to a friend to share the pain.

Where did you get that picture from?

I'd have laughed if they were gifting you SWTOR as a free to play.

Wouldn't "...fully honor our commitment to you..." mean "offer full refunds"? If you have to go to your credit card company to dispute the charge as a last resort then the customer has not been fully honored by the commitment to the transaction.

FOR OUR PATIENT AND AMAZING MAYORS - A FREE PC DOWNLOAD FROM ORIGIN

Our SimCity Mayors are incredibly important to the team at Maxis. We sincerely apologize for the difficulties at launch and hope to make it up to you with a free PC game download from Origin.

Starting today, every player that has activated their copy of SimCity will receive an email that will give directions on how to redeem this offer, and you can also find more information on our FAQ here:

https://help.ea.com/article/simcity-something-extra

We’ll be opening up the redemption portal country-by-country so some of you may see it a little sooner than others. The portal will be live worldwide for everyone to select their game by March 22. We don’t want any of you to miss out on your free game, so please note that you must register your copy of SimCity before March 25, 2013 at 11:59 PM PDT and you must claim your free game by March 30, 2013 at 11:59 PM PDT.

At Maxis, our studio values dictate that we innovate and create something that is quirky, complex and challenging. Sometimes this bites us in the butt, but our servers are green and we’re seeing record numbers of players all online and having a great time.

Here is the list of games that you will be able to choose from once you are able to redeem. It’s a great list of games across the whole EA portfolio, so pick one and add it to your Origin library on us!

We’re getting great feedback from our fans and know that many of you are having fun and exploring this whole new expression of SimCity. We’re humbled by your patience and passion for the game. Thanks for building something very special with us, together.

SimCity 4 hahaha. Buy it, mod it, enjoy a proper SimCity game.

And Dead Space 3? Already?!

#112 Posted by Akyho (1713 posts) -

Sim City 4, so you can play Sim City even when Sim City is down!

Everybody wins!

Wow. Dead Space 3...I am shocked. Glad I purchased and activated SimCity last week despite the server mess.

#114 Posted by probablytuna (3893 posts) -

Huh, looks like I was wrong after all.

#115 Posted by Scotto (1231 posts) -

That's actually a pretty decent list of games - too bad I own all them already, except MOHW and DS3 (neither of which I'm interested in).

Maybe if it's possible to gift the game, I'll give DS3 to my friend.

#116 Posted by Fattony12000 (7632 posts) -

Jeff will be so sad that it isn't Syndicate.

#117 Edited by Glottery (1414 posts) -

Colour me surprised, they *did* include Dead Space 3! I'm very willing to give it a try as a "free" game!

...though I could've gone with Syndicate as well...

I’m an underage user, how do I get my game?

Users who are beneath the minimum age required to access interactive online services will automatically be granted a copy of

SimCity 4

: Deluxe Edition and

Bejeweled 3

instead. These games will be added directly to your My Games library over the coming days. You do not need to take any action. If you do not see these games in your My Games library by March 31, 2013

How do I know that I am marked as underaged? I dont want to end up with Sim City 4 and bejeweled in the end just because I am German. And yes I am over 18^^

#119 Posted by Scotto (1231 posts) -

I assume at some point in your Origin profile you put in your date of birth. Don't know what being German has to do with it, though?

In Germany we have stupid laws about not being able to buy or even look at 18 video material between 7 and 22 o clock. And I never remember to type in a birthday that is why I am asking^^

What is the cost right now to go from BF3 standard to all the DLC?

Just root around your Origin settings and stuff, to see if you can find somewhere that you've indicated your age or date of birth. As for being German - you redeem the game at a time of your choosing, so I'd hope it would work as long as you redeemed at a time between those hours?

Can't imagine they'd stick everyone in Germany with Bejeweled as a general policy.
