Hopefully other digital distributors will get this, don't want to pay tax on top of the 60$.

I can live with origin, just buying it directly through EA/Origin as opposed to GMG/GameFly/etc.. means you need to pay tax since EA has offices in Canada.

However rereading through this thread I saw a link mentioning that it would be available through other digital distributors.

Signup for Beta access is now available http://www.simcity.com/en_US/beta/eula

There's also this new disasters video, and there is a 20 minute Q&A video on their channel as well - Where they also said that max city size is about the same as a medium sized city in Sim City 4. Kinda lame.

What the hell? Hopefully that means more cities per region.

Another item I want is the sandbox feature from the previous title. People are still adding their own structures to that game!

Thanks for the link! Hopefully there will be enough micro management to make it so the medium sized city is hard enough to handle!

SimCity? | Deals and Promotions | GeForce

Nvidia giving away 5000 "beta" codes. I say beta because its a 1 hour timed demo basically, except it's exclusive. Get em while theyre hot.
