Meh, he dumps his sewage in your back yard; the acid rain from your factories can eat away at the facades of his buildings! An eye for an eye. Happy now?

Or maybe you can get big enough so that the two cities are forced to amalgamate under your control. Better?

When Sim City 4 first came out I thought the multiplayer would be somehow real-time or at least persistent, instead of just sending your buddy your map file. Hopefully the multiplayer in this is real-time somehow, that would be sweet. Did you guys see this though? Pre-order is already up, with deluxe edition that already has extra city sets only available with the deluxe and the game is not set to release until 2013...

Singleplayer is comfirmed to be in the game. The guys over at Maxis did an AMA on reddit yesterday. It's a good read

Personally I'm really excited.

Well if a game provides you with thousands of hours of entertainment why wouldn't it be worth $80?

Well another strike against this game. It is confirmed that it will required always on internet connection to play.

SimCity requires internet connection to play, will be sold outside of Origin | Joystiq
