I can't wait! I actually enjoyed Societies. It wasn't the original SC formula, but the concept was great. I would love a mixture of the original SC and Societies.

Im exited too! The last good simcity was 4. I KIND OF, liked societies, but it lagged and crashed at random alot. If it comes to consoles, i will be happier, since the last cool console simcity was simcity 2000 and for PS1. (i like SC2000 on PS1. I have it on PS3 as a PSone classic, pretty good).

Console release? How the hell are they gonna make a game like that play and be fun on consoles without dumbing it down for everyone? I'm mildly interested, but skeptical.

They did not dumb down the console release of simcity 2000.
EDIT: No simcity console releases were dumbed down to be honest. Besides Simcity Creator and Creator 2, but they were meant for consoles.

Because of what i see in the game shot, i can see it uses the engine from the sims 3. Hope its made by EA or maxis, and not an external dev.,

Oh boy I sure hope this is true. Although the cross platform tid bit really makes me question it's validity.

This better not be like Simcity Societies, it sounds like they are "mainstreaming" it. I swear if this game is ruined there will be major hell to pay, and they better not push that Origin crap on us.

I'm going to play Simcity 4 now.

Origin is required for all EA games now to "try" to stop piracy.

Oddly enough I re-installed it just the other week. Sweet.

Also...couldn't agree with you more on the Societies pile of crap. After they knew it was going to be sh*t they tried to distance the name from SimCity - claiming Societies is just a new avenue or something asinine like that.

They already know TheSims didn't work out for the console. I sure hope they would stick to being smart and release it as it should be...just and updated SimCity for the PC like a bunch of us have been waiting for all these years. There is no need to change the formula. All they have to do is update some graphics and other basics and I'm pretty sure people will be happy. More than happy.

I thought player reviews were somewhat panning the console version(s). I've never played it on a console so I can't speak from my own experience or anything.

I probably wont be able to play 5, unless I get a new graphics card.

They sold on the name alone. Reviews were crap, both player and media.

I wish this ain't a joke! Sim City 4 was one of my favorite games and I've been waiting for Sim City 5 for quite a while now. tounge.gif It's good to hear that it's coming, I sure hope it's worth-it and not too boring. But I hope it would be like CitiesXL. notify.gif

SimCity 5 by Maxis and I'm buying this. Now I'm playing Mobility (best clone of SimCity).

is there official word? I loved 4, but only with sh*tloads of mods (NAM for example) The game lacked so much, such as dynamic road construction (able to make roads in ANY direction with intersections anywhere at any angle) and to zone at appropriate angles.

I'll be looking forward to it but... i doubt my PC would run it sad.gif

Nothing is official yet. Its just "accidental" leaked images from a maxis chairman. Here it? MAXIS CHAIRMAN! MAXIS! MAXIS IS MAKING THE GAME!

By the way... on EA`s and simcitys facebook page, this was there:

Hearing this literally made my day. There's only two things I want in SimCity 5, a jazz soundtrack and the humour that was all over SimCity 3000, like the wacky petitioners and the satirical style artwork for the characters. That's all I want, and maybe give us a chance to be really crooked and evil.

I love Sim City 4 but that isn't doing it for me. It looks miniature and cute, something like a console game.

The game should also have a building generator. I hate seeing cities that all look the same because there are only so many buildings in the game, a building generator would fix that.

That is all just concept art, the game itself will probably look like Cities XL.

I'm guessing (as with most Maxis games) there will be some sort of editor, modding tool, or some form of customization on release. (Hopefully)

It will be nice to see some new landmarks, like Southend Pier or the Gherkin. I always loved unlocking that kind of stuff.

As for people saying they hope to see things.

Remember, simcity 2000,3000 and 4 had all those things: Landmarks, Building editor programs, building generator programs, etc. But those tools were for the windows versions only.
