Total cost of all DLC and store content
I ran the numbers. I went to the Sims 3 store and searched for "*" and got 3190 results. I took the average of the first 50 results and it came to 233.5 simpoints. A simpoint is worth 10 cents. So everything on the Sims 3 store costs approximately $74,486.50. As for DLC/the game itself, the total is $439.81. So grand total, you're looking at $74,926.31 to own everything the Sims 3 has to offer. Start saving those pennies!

Oh they will! It is going to be horrible and horribly expensive.

The DLC's that offer content like furniture and more varied inventory to buy is something your sims can live without. There are maybe 2-4 additions to the base game that you'll enjoy seeing your sims have, like career choices and maybe pets.

The point was more to demonstrate the greedy nature of EA. Even with The Sims 3 and 4 addons though, you're still spending $150 on a 5 year old game.

true EA is greedy,but some of the dlcs add alot of content,besides i wait for sales,as for simpoints content i just try to wait for free simpoints from the officle sims 3 site,oh and the big furniture dlcs(diesel or whatever its called) i never buy since its truly a waste no gameplay content is added

Toddlers and Pool building have been removed from the Sims 4 main game.

Oh and they're talking about adding on a $100 monthly/yearly (I forget which) fee in order to get the expansion packs for it. So yeah, ♥♥♥♥ Sims 4, I'll stick with 3.

Thanks EA, you greedy ♥♥♥♥♥.

Wow I'm going to be honest I don't follow a lot of this sims related news other than watching Curtis Pardy (probably spelled that wrong) but that just sound like they're being money grubbing D-bags. I know this is on there forum and if I get banned I wouldn't give a ♥♥♥♥ but damn they love to ♥♥♥♥ on their customers.
MutatedNoob Jun 28 @ 5:19pm 
I have the game anyway and unless they block me from purchasing or some ♥♥♥♥ It really won't ♥♥♥♥ing matter. Wen't from being annoyed to proper ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ed.
