Sims 3 Pictures and Information

Jordan Alexander shared some scans from UK magazine PC Gamer.

Snooty Sims is sharing pictures and discussing Sims 3, too.

Even Business Week is interested.

The biggest change to The Sims 3 is that it takes place in a wide-open, constantly changing neighborhood — a much bigger sandbox, if you will, and a much more complex simulation. The town and park you see on the cover image to the right (click to enlarge) exist in the same seamless space as your Sims’ household, and what you do outside your home now matters as much as what you do within. (Yes, previous expansion packs added out-and-about activities, but they were always separate sub-games. Here, everything’s completely integrated.) The game also sees a major shift in how Sims’ motives are handled: Individual meters indicating bladder and sleep-deprivation levels are replaced by a new system of discrete moods, the aim being to get players off the treadmill of fulfilling primal eat-sleep-pee-repeat requirements so they can focus more on, well, going out on the brand new town.

Interesting.

MATY is discussing it as well, so it is only a matter of time before Master Modder and Fat Obstreperous Jerk J M Pescado declares it is all "Lies & Propaganda" or acquires a working copy of Sims 3.

P.S. Sorry to be so quiet. Grad school has been SUPER BUSY the past few months.

FWIW, the SecuROM issues convinced me not to buy BV or FT so far.
