I think they just need to flush out all of those glitches & bugs. This one seems a little fun, it just seems like they're re-hashing some of the older expansion packs of the Sims 3.
Sim porting sounds absolutly worthless. I have no interest in a new Sims Online by sharing my sim with others. My game is intended to be played by me on my computer not sent out.
The reason why they haven't released Open for Business or Seasons for the Sims 3 is because they wanted to do some newer things, they probably released the let down Pets because people wouldn't stop asking and complaining for one. I wouldn't mind having Seasons or Open for Business again. I like owning stores and such.
I think EA's extortionate greed will backfire on them soon. If they keep putting less and less content in the EPs they churn out that no one asked for (and keep ignoring calls for ones like seasons etc), then we'll just stop buying them! I for one have no interest in SHT.
Nobody really minds the expansions, or that they have little true content in them. What people mind, is that EA is asking half the price of a complete game for each one, and there is a new expansion every few months. Quite obviously one of the worst cash grabs in the history of gaming. I used to enjoy the Sims when expansions meant something. Now I won't go near them.
Thank g o d people give their tit for squeezing. It is with their money that I can buy smile price other EA titles. Go buy them all!
