SimCity™ Is On The iPhone!

The first of Electronic Arts major franchises is now on the iPhone! "SimCity™" is now available in the App Store for $9.99. The only Sim games I have played are the early incarnations of "The Sims" and "SimCity 4." I liked "The Sims." "SimCity 4" bored me.

Here's a video demo of the game from

I don't think I'll be getting "SimCity" at $9.99. Let's look at the price point per megabyte with games that cost about $10.

  • SimCity - $0.32/MB

  • Hero Of Sparta - $0.124/MB

  • Ferrari GT: Evolution - $0.123/MB

  • Brothers In Arms® Hour of Heroes - $0.122/MB

  • Spore™ Origins - $0.10/MB

I just threw in Spore just to be fair to EA Mobile. I'd rather buy "SimCity" at the $7.99 price point or less since it's a 31MB game.
