The Sims is one of the most popular and persistent franchises in gaming, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that EA is already preparing for the next part.
Sweet so it is. Can't wait
The original Sims still gets it done for me.
Yea Sims 2 was the main one I got into. Then they just stripped all the stuff they put in Sims 2 when they went to Sims 3. Re-released pretty much the same expansion packs and added in microtransactions and called it a day. The Sims 4 can stay on the shelf for all I care, its turned into nothing but a cash in just like the terrible excuse for a Sim City.

It'll most likely have drm
I remember my sister getting me into the original Sims. I never could work up the patience for a day to day routine, so I just cheated using the rosebud code for money and spent time building a huge mansion. Then I'd inevitably get bored and either drown my sims in the pool by removing the ladder, or have them die in a fire by getting them to set off fireworks indoors when I'd removed all exit points. Frankly I'd argue it was natural selection. Then I'd repeat the process a month or two later. Good times.
sims 4 could be so great! o3o i was hoping ts3 would have better online features, so i'm hoping the next one delivers ^^
Ugh, the Sims 3 is a buggy enough mess. I can't even imagine how bad 4 will be. I wonder if they'll do like they did in the segue between 2 and 3, and strip 4 of all the actually useful content and pop it in over more than a dozen expansion packs.
Dear EA please get your servers ready and tested BEFORE you release this. Not my sort of thing anyway but it bugs me when people get burned a la the Sim City farce.
Well can't wait for EA and E3 :-D
So, anyone else planning on NOT buying another DRM filled festival of f$*^ery?
Hopefully the console version will be the same as PC and PS4 will make use of the touch pad.
Didn't even think of that. Woukd make the navigation in the building mode UI better. Keep forgetting about that touch pad and all the possibilities it could bring.
I'm still playing Sims 2.
