EA is Cherry-Picking Who Gets Pre-Release Sims 4 Builds

In a development that can be seen as either a bit worrying or very funny, EA has given up all pretense of getting an even spread of release day reviews for The Sims 4 and is attempting to game the system entirely. We’d previously noted the assertion from IGN’s Dan Stapleton that EA would not be sending pre-release review copies of the game to reviewers. To date, we’ve not had one either.

It turns out that certain Sims 4-dedicated sites have been able to play the game prior to release, outside of dedicated preview events. The comments on this article from SimsVIP reveals the site has “had a playable version for a limited time.” Somebody took this information to the official EA forums, where the thread was subsequently deleted. Which is quite an interesting course of action. (PC, The Sims 4)
