you don't own the game u rent it... the games are stored in the cloud... simcity 4 will run without the internet. simcity requires internet with the online drm. sc 2013 has small tiles... resources run out.. yah i know that you can play it offline but ea is likely to sue you for that action.. btw ps4 and xbox 720 will require internet to function 100% of the time...

The real problem, and this is something that the video only briefly touches on, is the whole always-on requirement. I know they did it as a form of copy protection, but it's beyond stupid.

Sim City 2013 should have been created with a full offline mode that saves your progress locally, and the online multi-player portion should have been an OPTION!

Forget games with always-online requirements, what happens to software that needs to be activated with the company, a decade from now? Will they still be supporting it?

I was interested in the game Alice: Madness Returns, since I like the first game. It's over ten years old and I still enjoy playing it from time to time. A:MR requires online activation and it's limited to three activations. If I buy it, am I still going to be able to activate it a decade from now if I decide I want to replay it?

I buy games to own them, not to rent them, for however long the company decides to support them.
