    I want it, but not for 60 EUR or a long waiting time when ordering physical copy from somewhere outside of Germany.

    Will use try-before-buy :)

    If it ain't shit in the end, maybe we can form an empires region together? :|ove:

    I admit the digital versions are overpriced but for £34 with Amazon delivery on the day of release I found to be OK at least for an EA title

    But yeah I would like a region if possible, that is if anyone else has bought it

    34 GPB for standard edition.

    So where's the difference between standard edition and limited edition?

    I don't need germany/britain specific city sets.

    Edit: Standard will be missing the Heroes and Villains playset :headshot:

    I'll order overpriced german limited edition. double :headshot:

    Yes, that is a queue to join a single player game.

    Sim City is a game meant to be played when the internet doesn't work. therfore I do not foresee many sales due to the fact that you need an internet connection to play a game which has it's niche in the connection-is-down market.

    Yeah there were queues for the beta too I ended up waiting around 45mins but that's pretty much a game of DOTA.

    And I don't see how it's a single player game when you can play off of other users cities in the region. I was watching a guy on Twitch today and he and his buddy were both streaming and helping each other out with alloys, water and sewage etc.

    Of course it doesn't have to be just that way

    I don't know why people bother buying EA garbage.
    At-least ubisoft DRM isn't this bad.

    Fuck yeah brother, goty ftw.

    But it could be like civ5 and replace the goty edition with the gold edition after ALL the expansions are finally in.

    I would buy it, because I loved the Sim City series, but the whole "connect to the internet" thing to play really puts me off.

    I'd get it if I could play it offline.

    But then again, i'd buy a remake of sim tower.
