The original story follows below
Amazon has stopped selling digital copies of SimCity. As spotted by GameSpot sister site Giant Bomb, the online retailer is no longer allowing consumers to purchase the digital version of Electronic Arts' just-released city-building PC game.
"Many customers are having issues connecting to the SimCity servers," Amazon said on its website. "EA is actively working to resolve these issues, but at this time we do not know when the issue will be fixed."
The boxed version of SimCity remains available for purchase through Amazon.
SimCity launched Tuesday in North America and was beset by various server issues that in some instances have kept gamers from logging in. EA said yesterday that it is "confident" that such issues will be resolved for the game's United Kingdom launch tomorrow.
EA announced today that it had disabled "non-critical" SimCity features to address server woes.
