(and I'm garenteed in as I played beta1) :)

correct.

This quote below from their official FAQ would seem to indicate that you are not actually guaranteed to get into the second beta just because you got into the first... I've highlighted the "if you are selected" part.

Q: I played the first beta, can I play again?

A: You will need a brand new code to play, but it is possible to play again if you are selected.

Bata?

It's beta.

Bee-ta. It's things like that which make me dislike Americans :p

In US English (at least from where I am), it is pronounced bay-tah

I was in the first beta and I didn't even know there was a second beta until stumbling upon this thread.

It's EA. It wouldn't matter if it was the best game ever made, there'd still be a lot of hate going on.

Maybe it's just because its a demo/beta? Maybe in final there will be bigger maps.

from what i hear they are all going to be that size, they know that people want bigger maps so i wouldnt be surprised if the next DLC for has bigger maps

Disappointed I didn't get in, EA guys on twitter gave out a few codes but they went instantly.

Where did you preorder? I preordered the dvd version from amazon and they automatically sent me the key for the second beta. They sent me a code for the first beta before that one happened also.

The map sizes are perfect for NYC. I live on long island. NYC is a bunch of boroughs . Each city you build would technically be a borough of NYC. Manhattan would mostly be Commercial and sky scrapers, Westchester would mostly be residential, queens could be industrial.

That is true for sim city 4 but the map is different now there is now big green areas between each city in the region so that cant be done

I know I was in the first beta. Why cant it be done? The first beta limited it to medium and low density. I had apartment buildings and multi level stores being built in my city. High density brings the skyscrapers and tall commercial . The game also lets you spread out things to other cities so that one region can take care of anothers garbage.

I lol'd at all the people who pre-ordered via Origin... you have more money than sense.

Amazon has the limited edition (Origin key) version for half the price of what it is on Origin.

I preordered the dvd version of the game from amazon. I figured once the servers get shutdown it will be easier to make it not depend on the servers if you have an actual dvd.

Origin - ?65 - http://store.origin....ctID.246949500/

Sucks that you live in a country that's in debt and wants more of your money.

There was a listing on Amazon for the digital version (Origin key) 2 weeks ago that was at ?30 and I'm sure play-sc will have it for ?25 a week after release. Just like they did with Battlefail 3.
