When the new Sim City launched this past Tuesday, gamers waited anxiously to launch the new game and create their cities. They’re still waiting. The game’s much anticipated launch has been little more than a disaster, with servers crashing, features missing and even entire games from those who were able to get on to the game seeing their cities completely erased for no reason. Now, in what could be the biggest blow to EA, Amazon has stopped selling digital copies of the game.

The game’s Amazon page lists the PC download, which requires an always online internet connection as “Currently Unavailable: We don’t know when or if this item will be available again” with an additional disclaimer reading; “Many customers are having issues connecting to the “SimCity” servers. EA is actively working to resolve these issues, but at this time we do not know when the issue will be fixed. Please visit for more information.”

Earlier this week, EA began to remove features from the game in an effort to get the servers and thus the game online and working. Blast has reached out to both EA and Amazon for comment and will update when we hear back. We’re also attempting a review for you…as soon as we can get on…
