Ordered it through Russia... Should take a day or two to get from Russia to England if the Royal Mail isn't being completely incompetent..

24 hours to go!   I will name the region I make for us Airwaysim.  There will ne 10 to 14 unique cities.  It will require me to invite/allow you in the region to build.   I will post screenshots.

I just ordered SimCity Digital Deluxe Edition for NOK 599,- and got a NOK 179,- discount on the next purchase. Norway is always expensive.. let's hope the game is worth it. Is release date tomorrow?

If that was on Origin, be warned. At least in the UK, the small print said that the discount was only valid until March 31st.

Still again I gotta wonder, why buy it for 80 (nok 599) when you can get it for 40 :P

Anyways, I need to install Origin game client software too?

You must have an origin account running folks....must must must must....

You can't play sandbox or offline or you won't be able to save your cities.   EA is the ones doing this.

Well I am Russian so that shouldn't be a problem but I think the game is just in English. Just 20 Euro's cheaper where I bought it. They don't deliver in the UK though so my friend will send it to me :)

It seems that there is no precise UTC time of this Sim City thing...  Sami could teach them a lesson... 

March 5 is here and nothing...  I was expecting midnight, either Eastern or Pacific...

From where? And cheaper than what? :) Hotel, camping, hostel? Plane, car, train?

Haters...  So I woke up at 1:30am and I was able to start the download thru Origin.  It is 521am here now and I'm gonna go play if I can.

UPDATE:  I am downloading the now-expected first day patch

first shot at a city took me 2 hours to cover the whole map... a little bit disappointed on some of the features.
