Sydney: EA locks gamers in fish tank to play SimCity

If you’re in or around Sydney today, head down to Circular Quay. Kotaku reports EA has cleverly trapped six gamers dressed as construction workers with the lure of six hours uninterrupted play time on SimCity. The competitors are battling to build the largest population by 2:00 PM, at which point the winner will be awarded a helicopter ride, boat tour, and Harbour Bridge climb. Unfortunately nobody’s yet figured out how to get into the tank and leg it with a copy of the game. SimCity is due in early March.
