FOUR content packs on SimCity release

It's like EA has a permanent ass-mode on. On top of the always online DRM we get stuff that could clearly already be in the game, but isn't. Instead we'll get The Sims style endless content packs.

French City Set, German City Set, British City Set and the Heroes and Villains set. Containing building sets, transportation modes, services, and missions.

Really I just hope this doesn't turn into another spore...

The extra stuff is bulls***, like you get a Big Ben (?) in the London one.... but why would you want your fictional city to have one iconic building from the real world? It's not what you want, unless you're an idiot.

Their website is all f***ed up atm too

So I found out you can upgrade your Limited Edtion to the Deluxe edition for $20 so which cdkey website do you recommend purchasing from??

Deluxe Edition Upgrade for $20: http://store.origin.com/store/eaapac/en_AU/pd/productID.260623100


I found it for $39 here http://cdkeyshere.com/simcity-limited-edition-cd-key.html

So for $39 I can buy this game with the extras?

The site tit linked doesn't mention the london/germany/paris stuff though? The stuff I said I didn't care about, yeah, but I'm curious anyway...

Correct Thermite, $39 doesnt come wit hthe london/germany/paris extra. but you can pre purchase the upgrade kit for $20
http://store.origin.com/store/eaapac/en_AU/pd/productID.260623100

so for $59 you can get the deluxe instead of paying $99.00.

Thats what im thinking of doing anyway

These packs aren't news at all, and on top of that they're totally insignificant.

The three city packs are completely cosmetic and the Heroes and Villains pack that I think maybe adds a little bit of gameplay is included in all release versions of SimCity (Limited, Collector's and Digital Deluxe Editions). I guess they'll start selling a non-Limited Edition version after release that doesn't include it but even then the H&V pack also seems pretty minor and insignificant.

I know EA are complete c**** but I don't really get what this thread is complaining about.

will we use this thread for b****ing on release day or start a new one?

Easy way to get another 100+ reply thread. Might start it now to ensure it's mine. Thinking: Sim City 4 ALL IN ONE THREAD, timeout/connection issues solved. FU EA!!

or you know... they happen to live in London or Germany or France and want to recreate their city how they think is should be.

f*** you are short sighted thermite, hardly anybody is as dumb and close minded as you. Only a REAL idiot, like you, would assume that anyone is like minded.

A single famous landmark is not the ticket to building a replica of a real city. If you really wanted to recreate a city with the correct buildings, you wouldn't be doing it in Sim City, and if you were, having that one building isn't really going to make a huge difference.

Your post is clearly just random abuse and I don't believe you honestly think you've found a problem with my post.

Totally agree with TotalBiscuit, why the f*** should I pay the exact same price for a preorder of something which I can pick up on release day at no financial benefit?
And the extras they're throwing in? Pft, why bother.

I bought it because I want to play it more than I hate EA and they sent me a beta key.

EB Games have a collectors edition pre-order for the same price as the normal edition - $78
