If for some reason you’re still playing SimCity then you might be glad to hear about the latest bit of DLC coming to the game. Called the “Amusement Park Pack”, this bit of DLC will allow you to build a park and lay it out as you wish. In other words, it’s like adding Roller Coaster Tycoon to the game, except that Roller Coaster Tycoon has bigger parks than SimCity’s cities.
EA seems to think that the DLC will do well, saying that “we think you’ll be amused”. The game may have sold 1.6 million copies, but when you take into account the fact that they’ve had to dish out a ton of free games, not to mention having to deal with fixing the servers as they went down, the profit margin can’t be that great. EA had better hope that people go ahead and buy this pack.
At this time there is no price listed for the DLC. If I had it my way, they should really be giving it out for free to everybody for the pure cluster f*** that SimCity has become. As it is, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see them sell it for $9.99.
