Happy 15th Anniversary to The Sims!

0

Can you believe it? 15 years ago, on the 4th February 2000, The Sims was released in North America and the world was never the same. Hard to believe that it’s been that long since Bob and Betty Newbie first moved into 7 Sim Lane.

The Sims, which was almost never made, exploded in the PC market and became the #1 Best Selling PC Game of all time! That caught everyone by surprise!

Since then we’ve had three sequels, several spin-offs, console ports, plenty of expansion packs and a wonderful community has formed who enjoy celebrating The Sims and sharing their creations.

Here’s to many more years of playing with life. Happy Birthday to The Sims, and a huge thank you to EA, Maxis and Will Wright!

Mac users can rejoice! Following Aspyr’s re-release of SimCity 4, it was only a matter of time until this happened. The Sims 2 is back and it’s available to download from the Mac App Store for £20.99.

Featuring the base game, 6 expansion packs and 3 stuff packs (which were the only Sims 2 games to be ported to Mac by Aspyr), the Super Collection is a must have… and saves going into Windows to play ;)

After almost 1 whole year without an episode, I’m excited to be able to say that Episode 3 of my Lets Play The Sims 2 series is now on YouTube!

With the arrival of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection and A Level exams finished, I have been able to revive the series as I can install Sims 2 once again (my computer doesn’t have a DVD drive).

How to get The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection

2

EA Help have posted an article on their website detailing how you can get The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection – even if you have the physical copies of The Sims 2.

At this time, all Origin customers who had previously registered their copy of The Sims 2 should now have the newly remastered The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection in their Origin My Games library.

We know that there are a lot of fans of The Sims who may not have had their copy of the game registered on Origin, and we want to reward The Sims fans for their incredible loyalty and commitment to the franchise.

As a result, we are developing an easy way for any eligible customer who owns a physical disc copy of The Sims 2 to upgrade easily to the new Ultimate Collection edition. We will update this article on or before Wednesday July 23 at 10am PT, with detailed instructions on what you need to do to get your own copy of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection.

As it currently stands, you need to contact EA Support through Live Chat or over the telephone until they have developed a way to easily upgrade. But EA will happily activate your physical copy on Origin so you can gain access to the Ultimate Collection.
