    This just made my day...no, my whole week! I still play SimCity 4 on a regular basis. I really hope that EA doesn't mess this up.

    Pretty cool that they revealed SimCity 5 in a german magazine. Not too surprising though considering that Germany has a very strong pc gaming market and games like SimCity or Anno sell very well.

    Mine are scratched to shit, but they still work thankfully.

    I remember playing this for hours upon hours on end way back in 2005. On a Pentium III with integrated graphics and 256 MB of RAM, it was slow, and not pretty, but the game was just so damn GOOD.

    Except for random bugs and the most nightmarish one of them all. The game hanging when you click "save". And your last save was two hours ago.

    Is it considered piracy when you just download the iso and install it with a legitimate key?

    I would think no. Since you do own a legitimate key so you do have proof of purchase.

    I just realized this but the original site for Simcity 4 isn't up anymore. Simcity.ea.com just redirects to the Facebook page.That sucks.

    By using torrents you almost always automatically upload, which remains illegal since you're not the copyright holder. So yes, you're wrong.

    Considering EA no longer directly sell or support the game they can kindly go and fuck themselves, they get exactly 0 from 2nd hand copies so it makes no difference to them anyway.

    I'm sure David Braben is really pissed that I torrented one of his games for my old Amiga... oh wait.

    Simcity 4 is fun, but I still find it really hard.

    I'll probably get this, depending on how it turns out to be like.

    I think the pics on page one are concepts, rather than any sort of experimental alpha. If they do make the game, I hope it looks like the 3rd picture.

    This better be a sequel to Sim City 4 and not another Sim City Societies, with the ability to make mods.

    Otherwise I'll just stick to my Sim City 4.

    Also, Multiplayer..? I hope this is something to do with regions (If there even IS regions in SC5..)

    Those were all core parts of the games, you can't just remove them.
