Sticky Trigger Entertainment's Twin writes: "Now first things first let’s get this clear, this is not a DLC, and this is not a whole new game. This is an expansion. The way developers used to expand on games after their release, you don’t pay big money for a few minutes of extra gaming or a couple of costumes. With an expansion you pay decent money for 100’s of costumes and add-ons that can bring an old game back to life. That is exactly the case with The Sims 3 Showtime."
