SimCity is finally returning to computers -- well, sort of. According to an article on MCV, it's actually being remodeled as a Facebook game. While no details have been announced yet, dollars to donuts says you'll have to add friends as neighboring cities in order to do anything meaningful.
You'll probably then bombard members of your social circle with messages like "Steve needs six bags of concrete for a statue, will you help him out?" All kidding aside, this is potentially great news. If people love the Facebook version, it will make it a lot easier to justify a full-fledged computer game release in the spirit of earlier titles in the city-building franchise.
