Sims 3 Gets Dated: February 20th

The Electronic Arts (EA) game most people are focused on right now is Spore, which ships Sept. 7th. But there's this other game some may recall, which was also designed by that Will Wright guy: The Sims. And on Wednesday, EA announced at the Leipzig Games Convention that The Sims 3 will be available at retailers worldwide and also via digital download on February 20th, 2009.

In their press release, EA said:
The feature-set includes a new seamless, open neighborhood, new Create-a-Sim, new unique personality traits, new unlimited customization and new gameplay that's quick and rewarding.

The Sims 3 Collector's Edition will also be in stores on February 20, 2009. The Sims 3 Collector's Edition will include the full game along with additional collectable The Sims merchandise and a bonus in-game Italian-Style Sports Car unavailable elsewhere. A limited number of copies of The Sims 3 Collector's Edition will be available worldwide, and those who pre-order the product from select retailers will receive an additional exclusive in-game vintage sports car and a collectible poster that is a first look at the neighborhood, all available while supplies last.


We've never really understood The Sims; performing real-life tasks in a virtual world just doesn't feel fun to us. Yet another reason we haven't tried Second Life.

Still, The Sims is so popular that EA has devoted an entire division (or "label") to it, so who are we to talk?

I'm right there with you warlord. The custom content is crazy. I had to get my girl a 160GB HD just for the sims 2. She has every expantion pack. So looks like I'll have some free time as well.
