"I feel bad for the team," Wright said when asked about the troubled launch by GamesIndustry.biz following a lecture at the University of California Santa Cruz. "I could have predicted—I kind of did predict there'd be a big backlash about the DRM stuff. It's a good game; I enjoy playing it a lot... [but] that was basically inexcusable, that you charge somebody $60 for a game and they can't play it. I can understand the outrage. If I was a consumer buying the game and that happened to me, I'd feel the same."

EA's response - "But its not DRM, it's a feature."

It's too bad that EA didn't listen to him. It's not as if he knows what he's doing or anything.

I'm sure there was a reason why Will Wright jumped ship when he did to go off on his own adventure.

Will Wright works with EA in running Stupid Fun Club. Who do you think funds that think tank? EA is a major shareholder.

What I thought is much more striking about that article is Will Wright saying it's a good game that he enjoys playing.

Of course he's going to say that, since EA is a major owner of his new project. Whether it's true or not is anyone's guess. I will say that it is tiring to see so much blind worship of Will. He's just a guy who basically made two good games.
