dailygamesnews.com - EA has announced The Sims 3 World Adventures, the first expansion pack to The Sims 3, is in development and will ship to retailers worldwide the week of November 16th, 2009.
and the expansions begin...
Damn already Yet people complain about DLC. Whats the difference besides pc expansions cost more money? @below I dont play the sims. Im very familiar with EA milking used to be a die hard madden fan.
Besides more money from ea? Loads of differences... Less money in your wallet than you previously had. A total sense of feeling ripped off once you install it and realise its just the holiday expansion the last 2 games had. Erm and... I guess a new sense of wonderment as to what the next expansion will be, and how you already plan to buy it anyways, even though the last one sucked becaaause... I guess because you can't help it, its a damn addictive game. Those are a few of the differences you'll notice once you buy this expansion.
If it's a problem for you guys, just wait until they release the inevitable bundles. Patience is a virtue. Guaranteed to give a hell of a lot more value for the money than buying the expansions separately.
of a probable 30
EA has a cash cow here and it's time for a milkin, again!
Sims 1 on holiday part 3: bon voyage 2 - World adventures. I love how they recycle old expansion packs as if they were new ideas. Although I wouldn't mind going to those pyramids... or buyin stuff at those cools stalls... I think I will do that, when I'm IN actual Egypt. The missus will love this though. So I'll be picking it up for her I guess at some point.
I think we should have an official franchise-milking showdown between EA and Activision-Blizzard. EA for The Sims series and Activision for COD: Modern Warfare series, see who can squeeze the most out of their customers. Now THAT would make a great Reality TV show.
my wife LOVES Sims3. How many people do you think there are in my position? We know that we are getting ripped off with all this expansions, YET, they do keep the wife busy for hours, upon hours on end. And that my friends... is simply priceless.
Not the wife per say, prossibley future wife, but who knows what'll happen. Anyways, yeah, the sims are a blessing. I get my quiet game time, she gets hers. All is well and good in the world. I'll be buying this for her so yeah, I'm going to feel ripped off. so yeah, I'm in the same position :P
If it adds more content to the game, where's the problem?
the problem is that so soon after release they have enough content for an expansion pack, meaning this sh!t was already being worked on when the game was released aka they purposely release a version of the game, without features so they can charge for it later (see: extortion)
You, my friend, are under the deadly spell of the money-sucking vampire that we like to call, 'Electronic Arts'. You need to bathe in the holy-waters of the n4g-forums to be fully cleansed. <- Sorry 'bout this, couldn't help it. :)
I am keeping my distance from EA games.
I'm all against leaving content out of a retail release only to sell it later However, with games like the Sims 3 I think it's fair for them to release all kinds of new directions to the game post-release If the game is a complete package to start with, there's no problem.
