At this point, Electronic Arts’ problems with SimCity don’t stop in the technical realm, but have now spread into the world of public relations. EA has told its partners to stop advertising the game, which is reminiscent of World of Warcraft‘s earliest days, and Amazon even stopped selling the game for a number of hours today. The less new people trying to buy or play SimCity at this point, the better. Kalypso is taking advantage of the situation by taking a whopping 75% off their Tropico 4 Collector’s Bundle, a plethora of content to satisfy any urban planning maniac until SimCity‘s servers decide to behave. For those unaware, Tropico 4 places you as the benevolent – or cruel – dictator of a fictional banana republic. Not only will you be laying down roads and infrastructure, but you’ll also be making clever social decisions that will make your people swoon over your visage or fear your very name. Like any Steam sale though, you might be spending the whopping $9.99 to not play the game, which is probably not much of a different fate than SimCity at the moment.
