In response to a comment from a CCP staffer, PCGamesN has put together a petition calling for the release of EVR, the Oculus Rift-enabled dogfighting sim demonstrated at EVE FanFest this year. All signs indicate EVR is nearly as sweet as the throes of first love, so get on that. Check out a trailer for the 6v6 title through the break.

Over 58,000 signatures have been added to a Change.org petition calling for the removal of DRM from SimCity. “Remove ‘Always Online’ DRM from SimCity and future games,” is the movement’s simple request, along with a comment about how “millions” of players expect single-player games to work when they want them to work. I’m not sure how efficacious the petition will be in this era of connected, social-heavy games, but it’s worth remembering that noisy fans convinced BioWare to issue an extended ending for Mass Effect 3, and Maxis has said it’s “definitely looking into” the possibility of an offline mode.

Japanese Xbox 360 owners have started a petition over arguments that they were test subjects in a 360 “beta release” of Tales of Vesperia: once a 360 exclusive, but now is coming to the PlayStation 3 in Japan very soon.
Some of the the demands of the petition, already signed by 550 out of a targeted 1,000, are:
“The games should not be dispersed across multiple platforms, they should be consolidated onto one platform [i.e. Xbox 360].
The games should be complete and properly made.
From now on, the porting of titles like Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Vesperia should be abolished.
An official apology should be made to Xbox 360 users for the abnormal number of additions made to Vesperia only a year after its Xbox 360 release.
That’ll be nothing compared to the PS3 fanboys lining up outside Square, when they announce FFXV as a 360 exclusive.

Here’s what they’re putting their name to. Translation supplied to VG247 by EG.de:
The German Bundestag should decide against the decision of the interior minister conference from the 5th of June, that aims for a [banning] of action computer games.
As an adult citizen and a person eligible to vote, I beg your firmly…
- to erase the irritating and discriminating term of “killerspiele” [killer game] from political discussion.
- to strengthen the trust of the public in existing national youth protection mechanics.
- to improve and warrant the execution of existing laws, that ensure kids and the youth only get access to videogames and computer games rating according the USK.
- to support parents and educationally responsible persons in the advancement of media competence.
- to promote the computer games and videogames industry in Germany and especially the training of these promising professions.
A ban on the production and distribution of “killer games” in Germany is looking very real, with the country’s 16 Interior Ministers now asking the Bundestag to put the move into effect before elections on September 27.
