"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."

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. --- It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. ...one begins to twist facts to suit theories.... Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
