Like Faith, I'd rather not have the bugs.


I agree. Besides the bugs, I want them to get as much in the game as possible so hopefully some EPs can be avoided (like Seasons could have been with TS2 had they waited to fix the weather bug).

Fall 09 would be ideal.

Though I admit I want a far away release date so the game is as good as can be, I also wouldn't mind some screenshots and teaser videos to come long before the game comes out.

I think there will be plenty of screenshots and teaser videos. Really, that's already started with the magazine. Also the website will be launched next week!

Only 7 more days for the site to be launched officially. So we shall see if a date will be provided.

If its not coming out for a WHOLE year, why put a site up now? And publish two magazine articles about it? Its being shown an awful lot for it to be coming out a whole year later. Everyone would have forgotton about it!
Most game sites are up at the most a few months before, maybe as much as half a year but I highly doubt a whole year and a bit. I know the sims is BIG, and has a huge fanbase. But seriously, a whole year in advance?! does anyone really care enough to stay stuck on that page for a whole year?

5 YEARS?! wow. Thats totally blown my idea out of the window.
AH. But was the spore website up for 5 years?
Is the internet even 5 years old? I can barely remember what happend yesterday.

Hehe, I've been on the interenet since 1998...
But yeah, the Spore webesite has been up for a few years. It's never had much info though. They just announced the release date on Feb 12. It's going to be out Sept 7th.

Ergh. Thats not good. I really can't wait to get done with the sims 2. I still love it, but im ready for something more indepth, more engaging. Im in a constant loop of meshing at the minute. I dont even play it anymore. merh.

Sentate, the Internet is a lot older than you think. It was released to the public in 1992 but was out before that.

Aww.. time was so much slower then. It seems like time is just flying by since i turned 20. Wow... that was 5 years ago. Looks like TS3 is just around the corner. I better watch out or it might just fly right by.

I also wonder if we are still going to get pre-order items this time. I hope not because then they end up for free later on and it's just pointless to create them.

The average for each expansion is about 6 months. It was 11 months from the last Sims 1 expansion pack to the Sims 2. If the same time frame is kept for the Sims 3, we would see it in January. However the only dates I have seen are this Dec., and Mar. 09. Whatever, I look for them to come out with a December release date, and then push it back to March of 09 if they have to many bugs.

The Sims came out February 4, 2000.
