The SimCity launch has not been great for EA. Server issues have plagued the new game, creating mountains of frustration to players who can't even play what they've bought. EA is now offering those who purchase the game by March 25 a free game from their top hits lineup.
These are Battlefield 3, Bejeweled 3, Dead Space 3, Mass Effect 3, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Plants vs. Zombies and, hilariously enough, SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition.
This is actually a nice list of games, especially Dead Space 3 since it just released. Gamers will have until March 30 to redeem their free game. At least 1.1 million have the opportunity so far, since EA just announced that's how much the game sold in two weeks, making it the biggest SimCity launch ever.
