    I do like the idea of the multiplayer aspect.

    I can imagine this eating my time..

    EA announces SimCity reboot

    New FPS to be based in a very generic simulation of a city...


    How i read the headline. The article has cheered me though.

    WTB Cities XL + SimCity Events + Much needed multi core support

    And it will be Origin only, so they can force it down the throats of those PC gamers who aren't in to Battlefield or Mass Effect...

    I've love another SimCity game. :) I'm equally sure I won't love the multiple stings in the tail, though. :(

    I think the platforms they are talking about are more likely to be smartphones and tablet rather than pure consoles - at least I hope so.

    I never liked sim city tbh. It always felt out of control like you just sat an watched as smeg happened. Anno is far better.

    Those are silly prices. I'm interested, but I'm still happy with simcity 4.

    I'd love a new SimCity game but not at that price, would happily wait for sales on it

    I have high hopes for this, but at the same time I am not getting my hopes up.

    First of its being done by Maxis/EA which means overpriced, lacking features needing DLC, likely to be closed no modding, and if the internet is true probably ported to consoles which will also reduce the PC version to no doubt something akin to the sims on an iphone.

    Of course I may be proved wrong and EA wont stuff it up lol who am I kidding its EA :)

    Good idea putting it on something like the DS - perfect for city sim stuff.

    Anyone remember SimAnt? That was the best Simxx tbh. :D

    As long as it is better than sim societies......Although I know Maxis was not involved in that one....

    I liked sim tower as well that kept me entertained on the work laptop.....was the last game I purchased on floppy disk.

    I was playing Sim Tower last week! Last Sim City I properly enjoyed was 2000, I'll have to give this one a go if it's any good. I can do all my Urban Design projects in it for massive amounts of extra credit.
