The only one question is: Will Cities XXL be able to use multicore and solve the big problem of this game or not? If not, i can only say do not buy this! At my system all games run fluent, only Cities XL don´t! Up to 150.000 people its ok no problems. Up to 500.000 people some tricks help, especially reload the city every half an hour. Over 500.000 it is not playable... Only becourse this game use only one core. And no i will not buy a new PC with a 4.5GHz single or dual core prozessor, becourse this is non commercial, actual standarts are quard core with about 3 GHz, and this i have, and there it do not run!!! And the newest have 6 to 12 core but not more GHz, on Single, becourse there is a temperature problem with more than 4 GHz it shorts the lifetime and it has higher risk of failure. And if Focus can´t fix this, they have to start from beginning! If someone gets more Infos about that, it would be nice to post it here, thanx!
