I just don't know why they need a massive amount of the game to stream from their servers, which is something I didn't realize since I didn't follow the dev cycle of this game aside from watching maybe 1 trailer. There's no reason a Simcity game of all things needs that much reliance on a internet connection.
Because of DRM? They want something someone can't easily just patch out to play offline, so they leave a lot of the simulation on the game server end.

Also, it lets a wider range of people play the game, like using onlive or similar.

Perhaps thats why they didn't do larger cities, they weren't afraid of PC users not being able to run it, they were afraid their servers would crash and burn!
