Eager fans who want to get an advance look at SimCity have a limited time to sign up at www.simcity.com/beta before the application process ends at 2am, GMT on January 21. Developed by Maxis, SimCity will be available March 8 and is available for pre-order right now.

“It is always an exciting moment to share a game that is still in development with its biggest fans prior to launch,” said Lucy Bradshaw, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA’s Maxis Label. “This beta will help the team improve the live service aspects of SimCity to ensure a smooth and user-friendly experience at launch. I want to thank everyone for signing up - we are excited to share one of our most beloved franchises with our fans.”

temped to sign up and then keep submitting reports it doesnt work due to internet issues, or how do i reload or save.

It would be funny if a ton of people do that, but I'm sure they'll vet their beta testers to make sure it's only the biggest EA nutslurpers fanboys around.

Bonus points if they used Diablo 3 error codes!

same here, but it opened a popup which then redirected to the previous tab and closed the popup.. wtf? I think most cross-site scripting protections would block this even if it was legit. I had 6 tabs open and that was a pretty weird login... I basically couldn't even tell where it logged me in among the 6 tabs... weird ;/

It seems to dislike any sort of ad blockers. I was able to sign up using chrome with no plugins.
