Even though you couldn't have picked two more different games, I will be buying both of these. Cool stuff. :)

Sim City is perfect for the DS. Very cool that Will Wright is in the game, perhaps Mr. Miyamoto will be hidden somewhere.

you can already make these comments in the other RR7 thread - Jonnyram posted scans, and they load WAY faster than these.

consensus is 'looks slightly better' to 'wait for video'

Hmmmm. That really does look like a sequel to the SNES version of SimCity, not just a port. I wonder who the developer was? Couldn't be EA for something like that.
Yes, EA and it's based on Sim City 3000.

SimCity DS = DROOL

Looks a lot like SimCity 2000 which isn't necessarly a bad thing.

SimCity 4 > SimCity 2000 > SimCity 3000 > SimCity

The original Sim is set for DS release through Electronic Arts
Sim City DS is based on the PC Sim City 3000. This isn't just a port, though, as the game features full stylus-based controls, mini games and a new adviser character who helps you out when designing your city.

Who's the developer of Sim City (yes, we know EA will be the publisher, obviously)?

The style at least for the characters definitely suggests a Japanese developer.

Maxis? Has anyone but maxis ever done a simcity game?

EAD developed Sim City on SNES and the unreleased version on NES as well. Then HAL Labs developed Sim City 64DD.

So Nintendo developed 2/3 Sim City games.

I wonder if Nintendo/HAL might be developing Sim City DS for EA?

Because Dr. Wright was a character only in Sim City 64 for the 64DD, which was developed by HAL.

That isn't Dr. Wright, it's Will Wright. This is Dr. Wright:

I'm not sure Dr. Wright was in Sim City 64 at all. I know Mario was in Sim City 64. Dr. Wright was a cool creation by EAD paying hommage obviously to mr. Wright.

Hmm, RR7 looks pretty nice. Not the kind of jump I was hoping for, but that's Namco for ya this gen (the next gen). It looks rather similar to RR6, to be honest (though the environments seem a bit more Ridge Racer this time), but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The lighting seems better, though, and some of the details may be lost until viewed in person (RR6 could not be appreciated until that point).

Regardless, the game still has a very solid look and is 60 fps (no chance of anything else). It should look great.

I still don't "get" what's up with Namco, though. It's like they simply have no clue what to do with this new hardware. I appreciate the high framerates (seriously), but they are ignoring so many other features offered by these new machines.

rr7 doesn't look any better than rr6 from those scans -- rr6 looks much better than screens would lead you to expect, but i have to say i'm a little disappointed. i guess i should wait for bigger pics before i say too much. the environment shots we saw months ago were really nice, if they were real.
