"I know that's a little contrived -- kind of like buying a present for a friend after you did something crummy. But we feel bad about what happened. We're hoping you won't stay mad and that we'll be friends again when SimCity is running at 100 percent," wrote Lucy Bradshaw, general manager of the Maxis label, a division of EA, in a blog post.
