They say all marketing is good, but too many dissappointed costumers and you're bound to lose some cred. Not that EA has that much left lol

Per a tweet just posted minutes ago SimGuruGrant has verified there will be a Create A Sim demo. And we will be able to save our creations to share in the gallery later when the game goes live.

Amazon Link *Added link
Had a link just as power went out.
SimsVIP posted that Amazon.ca is offering Sims 4 at $30. Off. It is only good if shipped to a Canada address.

Power went out and shut down computer.  Power is back but not going to tempt fate.

I read somewhere there are only 60 days to release and the playable Demo will be FREE. It is supposed to be available in about two weeks.

I assumed it would be free...... Rolling Eyes I don't think I'd pay for an early look.

LOL  Rolling Eyes 
Better be Free!  rant    Whistle 
It also pays to shop around if anyone decides to get this game. The Premium Edition is a Retail only edition.
Example from:
Best Buy wrote:
Premium Edition includes The Sims 4: Life of the Party Digital Content, which features the Flaming Tiki Bar and stylish outfits to spice up your Sims' social life
Also includes The Sims 4: Up All Night Digital Content, which includes the Laser Light Show, new fun decorations and outrageous party costumes to add even more fun to the festivities
Also includes The Sims 4: Awesome Animal Hats Digital Content that features a variety of fun animal hats for your Sims to wear and show off.  Also includes the Creator's Guide hardcover book, full of art from The Sims 4 and pages of tips on how to become a Sims master creator.

SimsVIP posted info on the different versions back in August 2013.
The Sims 4: Pre Order Bundle Types
I just posted a question there to see if any changes have been verified.

I just read SimGuruRachel's post on Sims 4. It would appear that this game is based purely on the sims themselves, everything else was just patch work quilted in held together by loading screens, in my opinion.

I had to when I saw this:

I wonder who those "selected" simmers will be????

I also have to wonder if this demo they will be releasing is a last ditch effort to try to sway simmers back who have dropped their pre-orders and those who have lit the forums up by saying they aren't going to waste their money on it. But releasing a demo on just CAS isn't going to win them back, to do that they need to release a demo of the actual game itself. To me I am really impressed with the new advanced options for CAS and when I saw the video done on all the building options I was pretty much sold. Then they started with "Oh we took this out..and we had to take that out to give you this...and yeah well that's not available anymore...but you'll be able to make some awesome fountains!  thumbs up "  

No I'm not thrilled that they took out; toddlers, cars, story progression, pools, rabbit holes, grocery stores, schools or career locations, etc. I'm not thrilled that they add those awful loading screens, although they claim that they will only be 30 seconds, but that's with just the base game. What about once you start adding more to it.  BUT...and there's always one of those 'eh? Being the sims addict I am and because I just can't help myself...I'll probably....most likely...about 90% sure, run right out and buy it. Just so I can maybe sit back after I rush home, install it, launch it and then kick myself in the...keester. But I'm 90% sure I'm going to take the gamble and risk that maybe, just maybe it won't be all that bad.  Smile

I hate to say it but if they think the pirating of 3 was bad I think it will be far worse for 4. At the prices they want with so little content I suspect a lot of folks will want to try a free copy before deciding if to buy it or not. I still am leaning on waiting for a sale, after I have read reviews when people actually have their hands on the game, to decide if I even want it or not.

I have a feeling it will be on sale soon. Oh that's right, it already is in some places.

EA really has made a royal mess of this.

And those masks!!!!!! If all over the game I will scream. Worse than the Hetty hat showing up everywhere.
Yikes.

Great news! I am one of the lucky ones that got the early release of the Sims 4 CAS Demo. I have installed it and played around a bit. I will be spending a lot of my day tomorrow finding my way around in it and I will post pictures here.

Pinstar posted a video about planning your legacy founder. He goes through all of the aspirations and traits and his take on them. He also shows the Sim he is going to be using as his legacy founder.

We got something free to download and play with before either TS2 or TS3. I don't feel like thinking hard enough to remember right now. Whatever it was it was interesting and fun.

Sims VIP has the CAS Demo too. Here is her first video.



I forgot that today is shopping day so I didn't have much time to play around this morning. I did create two Sims and shared them to the gallery. Also to Facebook. If you are friends with me you can go to my page and see them, however, if you click on them, you are taken to an advertisement.
