The lights are on
Maxis general manager Lucy Bradshaw says that SimCity's launch problems are close to being over.
In an email, Bradshaw says: "I had hoped
to issue an 'All-Clear' tonight, but there are still some elements coming
together. Tonight and tomorrow we'll be monitoring each server and gameplay
metrics to ensure that the service remains strong and game is playing great. We
need a few more days of data before we can assure you that the problem is
completely solved and the game is running at 100 percent."
Apart from working on the problem, Maxis and EA have been offering players a free downloadable game for their troubles.

I wonder how much the Add-Ons will cost to increase the size of the city?
I'm very happy I didn't buy it.
And to all of the people that bought it and were disappointed; I salute you, you brave gamer.
Your sacrifice will not be forgotten.
Its not in the clear until people can play the game offline. Until then the game will always be broken.
