Shove off if you're serious because I play PLENTY of games on my fucking MacBook Air. Goddamn. Get your head out of your ass.

Seriously. Uncalled for.

To clarify, I've played "latest iteration Source" games on my Air on high details and have absolutely no problems. On the OS X side even.

Wow, just hearing about this... Simcity is one of my all time favorite franchises.

The trailer scares me a bit though. I really hope the basics are in-tact - I want to various levels of residential, commercial, and industrial zoning; complete control over taxes, city ordinances, and government funding; I want a full transportation and traffic simulation with at least as much detail as SC4: Rush Hour had with various road types and public transport options. I think multiplayer could be interesting but it speaks to me like something a much shorter simpler game of simcity would have - spending hours upon hours laying out my city in real time synchronously with another player doesn't seem likely (especially when you start factoring in pausing and speeding up time).

Graphics look great though and I'm glad they're apparently keeping some of the zaniness that's always been in the games.

Should we take this into the new "Officially announced" thread?

I'm not sure why you would expect this to be on consoles given there hasn't beena real SimCity on consoles since .... 2000?

I doubt even 4 would control all that well on consoles...

I am so mad at the specs. They are way lower than I expected, but for integrated graphics it needs a minimum of Ivy Bridge and I have a Lenovo X220 with Sandy Bridge that I just bought this past summer. :(

Awesome! I holded out for Societies, because I knew a real SimCity would come along. Here's hoping it's worthy of having that name!

If you mean the Origin part of Steambox, then yes. Dammit, EA.

So is the Digital Delux version worth it? I rather buy a physical copy of the game but they are offering $20 off your next purchase on Origin so I'm not sure on what to do here.
