The SimCity Box starts construction in June for $40

EA announced today that it'll release The SimCity Box in June, which includes SimCity Societies, SimCity Societies Destinations, SimCity 4, SimCity 4 Rush Hour and The Sims Carnival SnapCity. The best part of the bundle is the very friendly $40 price tag; however, the only real draw inside the box is SimCity 4 and its expansion Rush Hour, which are available bundled for $15 - $20 at most retailers.

SimCity Societies, which was not developed by Maxis, stumbled on release for various reasons. The SimCity Box might be worth it to those who missed out on the last half-decade of the series and are looking to test out its traditional and more casual incarnations over the summer.
