    Hilarious that SC4 is in there.

     

    Don't count on this calming the majority, it might have worked if the only issues were the server outages the first week, but the problems have been shown to go far beyond that.

    I see what they did there, offer standart editions only while those games have moved on forcing the owners to get DLC...

    discusting! Atleast offer BF3 premium

    What is hilarious about that? It is a pretty reasonable offer for people who bought the limited edition.

     

    edit: Oh, SC4... That is pretty funny!

    get the SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition send it to EA with a letter stating how good that game is and how many people still play it.

     

    in the old days you could buy a game and take it back within 30 days if you are dissatisfied with it. I once bought a game and it sucked so bad I took it back, they said whats up with it I answered its sucks, they agreed and gave me the money back.

     

    if you could have done this with simcity 2013 I could have said at least I tried. To have simcity 4 deluxe edtion in there is adding insult to injury, why? erm because you can get a copy off that game for peanuts now.

     

    I'm curious is it free postage for this free game?

    Really? they must be on some sort of completely different internet, because the one I'm on I cannot find this so called great feedback, unless they really are being litteral here: "we got ONE great feadback bladiebla"

    Hasn't it stroke you that they are offering a free copy of SC4 Deluxe when they could have offered a free copy of SC Societies?

    Oh sorry, maybe this one was also too dodgy to be given out for free!

    they only gave you the standard edition so that you would buy the dlc.

     

    in effect, the free game isn't free at all as you're probably gonna get the dlc which costs the same as the game. not saying it's the same for all titles, but i mean battlefield 3 standard edition costs the same as the premium edition. and the latest bf3 'patch' was 6gb and over!
