    :lol: I was actually looking on Wikipedia a few weeks ago to see if there was a new Simcity game in the works and didn't see anything, so ended up installing Railroads instead.

    would this be only a pc platform? Or would it come to PS3 as well? I don't think my laptops can handle high quality graphics.

    They would miss out on a lot of possible customers by not making it console friendly. They've done it with other games I figured wouldn't play nice on a console (Civ).

    yup. i just hope they stay away from all the extra bullshit that drug the last one down. i don't want to name my people, etc etc. just build and manage.

    Simcity is one of my favorite games, goes all the way back to grade 7 when we use to play it in computer class. with the big square R,C,I blocks.

    Never played any of the sims games. With the lack of gratuitous violence, I just figured it was for kids and girls. Go figure.

    Looks good I'll probably play it. I was playing a bit of Cities xl 2012 a while back which is a knock off but pretty good.

    Last bit of the clip..."Images not representative of actual game play"

    I was thinking it would be cool if it played like that. I wasn't really into the other versions of the game but it looks pretty good.

    most commercials are like that (show things that are not representative of actual game play)

    its more for functionality than graphics. thats what I take away from it, anyway.
