SimCity Finally Gets an Official Release Date

EA has officially announced SimCity will release on March 8, 2013 for PC and Mac. Though originally thought to be released in February, I’m quite happy with this news as I look forward to becoming overlord mayor of many “denisims of Atchville (trademark pending)”.
