Today is the day, downloading it right now and it's slow! I'm at 19%...

Got the digital download Deluxe Edition.

I just hope that the servers are able to cope with the load!

While it's entertaining... it should be called Sim Ville or Sim Town, the cities are incredibly small.

sigh, stuck in europe, we have to wait until the 7th.... not counting the poor UK, 8th for them...

But then again, now our North American brothers can stress test the servers for us :)

I am going to love the micro transactions.

I think EA must get all the possible money through in app purchases. This will help them create even better games whose sole objective would be to engage us deeply into micro transactions. Ultimately we should not be able to tell whether we are playing the game or we are playing micro transactions.

It's going to be real fun.

I'm jealous, but the always-online is still a deal breaker for me. I guess I'll play some Simcity 4 this evening, maybe get hold of some more textures the increase the diversity.

Origin was falling down a bit under the load and the keys went out about fifteen mins late, but once I got the launcher installed it downloaded and played fine. I haven't noticed any problems at all.

Anyone know how to access the Sandbox mode that they showed off on their blog?

It's a checkbox when you make a new region.

Umm it was more like two and a half hours late...
