^^ I think you could add Los Angeles to that list too, it's HUGE and well, it has almost 20 million inhabitants as well.

I think hypercities are cities who are energetic, modern, vibrant, have a lot of people, lot of shopping /nightlife, and are well known around the world.

Well, if the definition of a hypercity is solely based on population, then there are 4 or 5 hypercities: Tokyo, Mexico City, Seoul, New York, and maybe Sao Paulo.

Why would you call this "hypercities" and not "gigacities" ? Well, anyway, all those words are rather empty to me.

I would replace Shanghai with London in your list. (It's not only the sheer number of residents that makes a city "hyper" IMO).

Tokyo is the only hypercity. It is the only urbanized area in the World with over 20 million. New York will be a hypercity in 2014.
