EA’s acceptance of SimCity situation includes free download of one of these games

The end is near for the SimCity launch debacle as Electronic Arts has finally worked their way through the five stages of grief:

  • First came denial… “There’s nothing wrong with our game, it’s just too popular!”
  • Then the anger… “No, you can’t have a refund.”
  • This was followed by the bargaining… “What if we add more servers?”
  • Then wallowing in depression… “It’s supposed to be an MMO!”
  • Finally, acceptance and the promise of a free game for all of our troubles.

If you’ve purchased SimCity or plan to activate it by March 25 (that’s right, this offer is good even if you haven’t bought the game yet), you’ll also be given the opportunity to select one of eight games as a free download from EA’s Origin service. Your selection must by made by March 30 and the selection page will open by March 22. The eight games are:

  • Battlefield 3
  • Bejeweled 3
  • Dead Space 3
  • Mass Effect 3
  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter
  • Need For Speed: Most Wanted
  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • SimCity 4: Deluxe Edition

If you’re on the fence about SimCity, perhaps a free game to go with it could sweeten the deal. But I guess that means EA has slipped back to the bargaining stage.
