    Why are all the idiots assuming the an unfinished version was leaked even though it’s the same copy that was send to the press? Are you really that stupid to think that they are gona sell us a beta version?? Besides, on the day of the release all you have to do is switch the cracked exe back to the original and use the game disc to get online. You don’t even need to uninstall the game -.-

  2. Srikandi says:

    A bit ironic that they’re touting the store as a good reason to get a legal copy, heh. Nice screens though :)

  3. J says:

    @ Kalan

    I think you don’t need to remove the crack, as it only gets you to play without the CD. But for better results uninstalling the whole game would be better.

    I don’t think they’re going to reconsider SecuROM. They should have seen this coming when making the preparations for the “serial key only” system. I don’t believe they just made the decision out of nothing, they must have thought about it for some time and actually consider a leak of the game. Which is what really happened.

  4. Jenn says:

    You all can stop with all the pirate talk. Good for you, you’re a theif! Nobody (as in real human beings that have patience) cares, so take your pirate talk to pirate websites. This is a Sims News site.

  5. Captain Jack Sparow says:

    Well piracy is bad:) but most of the wester folk don’t know is that 95% of the kids in easter europe, central asia and other undeveloped areas can’t buy this because of the price.It may lock small cash for some of you but in some of those places that money counts for about about 25% or evan half of a months pay.Piracy is like Robin Hood it takes from the rich it gives to the poor.

  6. Nenito says:

    Captain Jack Sparow, you took the words right out of my mouth, don’t forget other places like south America too, I have family there, and I know for a fact that the price of the game is over 75% of there pay check, which really sucks, and well for people here, with the economy is horrible and so many businesses closed, there are a lot of people who have no jobs and can’t afford things now, so think of it just like Captain Jack Sparow said, Robin Hood takes from the rich and gives to the poor. now your lucky you can afford the game, because I know many can’t

    Its possible to be a pirate AND a paying fan.

    Im enjoying my 2 week “unrestricted trial” of the game while I wait to be able to actually buy it on release day.

    It just makes me an impatient fan.

  8. jonas says:

    i hate the store though… i mean, if you buy the game you should get the game. And not waste more money on extra content. And if they want to counter the piracy, then they should just enable the people who bought the game to download the extra content. I mean, eventually the pirates will pirate the seperate objects too… so yeah..

  9. Pirates Rule says:

    as of May 26 the Pirates are playing a final release version of the Sims 3. And do you really think the downloadable content is pirate proof? I guarantee that after 1 week of release there will be torrents for all the extra content that paying customer have access to. The only thing a paying customer is gonna get is a reoccuring bill for SIMPOINTS yay! EA’s new method of monthly subscription fee. You have to buy simpoints from them to download the new content each month. Why release an item and texture creator when you can get one guy to make 5-10 new items per month taking him a total of 3 hours per month to do so then charging the loyal customers $10 worth of sim points to download this content. Paying customers are clueless
