To be honest, I'm super excited about this SP, if it's real. I love anything Katy Perry, and would defiantly buy :)

Personally, I'm all for this. Katy Perry, has actually been a long time contribute to the Sims Series, and I think I read somewhere she actually has played Sims for years on her own time. I still wish there was a Charlie Sheen themed EP/SP in the works though.  ;D

Something about KP's name being on it is putting me off.. I would have rather they just called it 'Sweet Treats'. Hmm.. Nevertheless, I'll be getting every SP so I suppose I'll be getting this too, if it's real. I would so have rathered a stuff pack based on celebrities in general, if they wanted to go down that route, then they could have got lots of different celebs involved in designing clothes and items. I'm not too big a fan of Katy Perry. Lady Gaga or Jessie J, please? :P Despite this, I think the stuff will be very cool-looking, Katy Perry is a stylish lady.

Maybe it will have Katy Perry act as an NPC? That's my personal guess. Either that, or she'll record her Teenage Dream album in Simlish! Like I said, for those of you who played TS2, remember this isn't the first time she didn't contribute to the Sims Series. She actually has a song in Simlish, for the last expansion pack Apartment Life.

I do agree with Fez. I, too as much as I love Katy Perry, would be more happier with Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, or Charlie Sheen!

Oh no.. Please, no Nicki Minaj. :P

Nah, I genuinely just think EA would have done better with using multiple artists instead of focusing on Katy all the time, not everyone likes her and having a larger range would make it more likely that there'd be something there for everyone. I'd happily buy a stuff pack that Nicki Minaj worked on, as much as I hate her, if Lady Gaga was also involved! :P I'm pretty sure there'd be loads of celebs willing to work on the Sims franchise, considering it's popularity.

I agree Katy Perry is stylish, and this is definitely a smart move on EA's part. But the long-time fan of sims in me feels a little betrayed. I know it's just a stuff pack, but because it's just a stuff pack, I wish EA would pay more attention to what they know will sell to die-hard, crazy, life-consuming, loyal fans (you know, the ones who buy all EPs and SPs and have been playing for a decade--guilty as charged). Instead they give us half of what we want (a new SP) and use the other half (Katy Perry) to attract new people. It feels like EA just expects us loyals to buy whatever they put out just because we don't have it instead of trying to give us what we really, really want. Like mid-range items, or hungry, hungry hobo clothing.

Oh, good point Moons! A part of me also feels that EA just lobs stuff at us, knowing we'll buy it anyway for the sake of having the whole collection. I mean, how many people here are going to get this SP despite it not appearing very appealing? *Puts hand up*

Actually, because it has Katy Perry's name on it, I don't know if I'm going to immediately buy it. I generally like what EA puts out, but if they try to make it too much like Katy Perry with the wild, showy outfits and the outlandish furniture, I just don't think I'll be able to find a place for it in my game. We have enough of that kind of thing with Late Night and Showtime. I'm not going to judge just yet, but I do hope it stays very close to what EA normally does and just has Katy Perry's name on it.

I'm guessing it'll be very quirky themed stuff, vibrant bright colours. Maybe fruity sort of themes, though that was featured in the KP version of Showtime and I wouldn't like to think that EA would be happy with releasing an SP that is just a follow-up of a previous EP.. And sorry for misunderstanding what you said. I still think what I said does apply though, in my case anyway. I'm the sort of person that likes a complete collection, lol. :P

Oh, I definitely like to have the complete set. That little faded icon is going to bug me if I don't get this SP lol. But I know what to expect from EA. I don't know what to expect when they start branding their stuff. I'm sure there will be enough screenshots and videos before it comes out for me to make my mind up, though.

Not that I have anything against Katy Perry. I personally love her songs and I think she has a very nice voice.

I like Katy Perry too, she is a great singer and general celebirty. She doesn't seem as fake as a lot of the others. But it really seems like I'll have to consider getting this. Phreakindee is my favorite TS3 reviewer and I'll probably take his input on it and take a look at the items myself before actually buying.
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

I kind of like quirky themed stuff. Sims was never about a challenge, and working my way up anyways, for me. It was about using cheats and getting that nice stuff. (I'm one of the longtime Simmers, and I never fully let go of TS1 or TS2.) The silly frivolous items are very exciting to me naturally, as it goes with my personality. I understand why people playing as long as me would be iffy about this SP, but as much as I love my classics, I love new ideas and concepts in Sim add-ons.

Technically Carl, Katy was a brand. ;) Now she's divorced, so, y'know. :P

Anywho, what I want to know is- when is the Lady Gaga EP/SP coming out?! I love, love, love, love Katy Perry, but I'm a huge Gaga fan. Though I don't know if her outifts would be considered T for Teen...

Bahaha! Sure, why not? It will absolutely fit the teen rating anyway. :P
On second thought... Wasnt Lady GaGa the one who dresses herself in meat once?
Imagine meating a bunch of vegetarian people in a dark alley while wearing that. :(

I fully agree, as a fellow huge Gaga fan. I wish Lady Gaga had her own set of items. I think they'd be too hard to mesh on lower end PC's though. I'm still bummed EA didn't fulfill my request for Charlie Sheen items in TS3! Would anyone want Charlie Sheen content? I don't think anyone where I live would. (I'm from Detroit, remember?)

LazyGameReviews quoted with his Master Suite Stuff Review:

 "And what's up with all the fancy expansions and stuff packs? I mean, we don't all want to live the big life. I want Lower Middle Class stuff, maybe Hungry Homeless Hobo stuff."


I'm with LGR! I want a slum living stuff pack. I love the patched couch in the TS3  store.

As always when I hear about something like this I'll wait and see. If it's just more stuff to enhance the performing part of Showtime I'll pass. It doesn't matter to me if KP is in the title or not. I didn't buy the KP Showtime edition, just not worth the money in my opinion. I'm getting tired of shiny, new, expensive toys,stuff and clothes for my Sims. Sometimes they are poor or even homeless. They need stuff too!

I guess we should be lobbying for a Tom Waits themed EP, then.  The kids probably wouldn't know who that is, but I'd buy it.   ;D

Another update from SimsVIP. Katy Perry Sweet Treats Pack has been listed elsewhere on the internet, and it's supposedly going to be $28.95. If that is the case, you can count me out unless I feel that they've included 45% more content than the usual SPs. I like Katy Perry, but I'm not going to pay an extra $9 bucks just because her name is on it.

It's not sounding interesting. If it's just random pieces of food transformed into furniture, there'll be no way I'll get it. I mean, how would that go well in a home ???

That price interests me. Not in my usual way of preordening it straight away, but I'm interested in getting to know why this expansion will be that expansive. What will we get for our money?

The KP Showtime version was 10.00 more than the regular limited edition. It's possible it's just another SP with the Katy Perry name on it. Master Suite was 19.99 here in the US, add 10.00 and you'd get 29.99.  Very close price range.

I highly bet that it's another "ONLY 60 Items included!" SP. Anyway, my theory on why the creators chose KP again is for sales/publicity boost. They, also quoted by LazyGameReviews, "needed to 'borrow' more 'lunch money' from us.". I'd die of happiness for an Alternative Genre SP.

Lady Gaga is too much for just a simple SP. She needs her own EP. It would probably be hard on the computer, especially people like me who run the game below specs (still well, mind you! :D) As for Charlie Sheen... not so much, sorry. :)
