The Katy Perry version of Showtime still isn't on sale.   :(   I just want the Katy Perry extras top go with my candy coated dynasty.  I don't even care that much about the EP itself. 

I bet there will be another big sale when University Life gets released.  Amazon had a big one when 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff came out, where all other stuff packs were $6.50 and EPs were between $10 and $20.  I'm hoping for another sale like that when University Life comes out next month.

Oh I'm so happy! Maybe my mum will let me buy Seasons and Showtime finally  ;D

EDIT: How do you change it for a digital disk?

They have the Sweet Treats Stuff Pack... if that helps at all and since you said you weren't big on the EP anyways.

I picked up 70's-90's and the Diesel packs.  I refuse to get the Katy Perry pack, even if it's free.

I said the same thing, Branr, then I got it anyway :o

I've actually found that some of the clothing options are actually pretty decent and doesn't have the candy/cupcakes/other ridiculous "additions" to them.

Bought the High End Loft... Now the only one that still interests me is the newest, which wasn't among the sales for me (prices are also not as low as 50% for the Dutch store.) I do get to the proper store from the link though, so I'm hoping it'll still count for the site.

What is this 'Origins' exactly?  I recently came back to S3 after a (very) long break and I found I had to create an Origins account.  Is it like Steam or something?

There is a thread started for this topic already, with a link to the origins site. I don't know if it is similar to Steam or not, since I haven't used Steam before.

Since there is already a topic about this, I'm going to go ahead and merge them.


Origin is EA's version of Steam except it's for only their games.   When you register a game, all of your EA games become available for download via Origin where your information is kept like the registration code.   It's helpful in case something happens to your discs.  It also has several options that are similar to steam including the ability to talk to friends.  I have it but I rarely use it and now it's fully available for Mac users as well and they are going to start offering Mac downloads of your content through that client.

This may be a silly question but someone has to ask it lol

If I order a physical copy to I have to wait until it has arrived until I can play with it or can I get a digital download before it arrives?

Many thanks
KJ
Everything happens for a reason, sometimes we have to wait a long time for the reason to become clear.

I've never gotten the physical copy so I don't know if it will automatically register.  However, the last couple of games I have bought through origin did auto register but they were all digitals.   I want to assume it would work the same but you know what they say about assuming.

I purchased a couple physical copies yesterday and I received the product code for the free items that came with them, but not for the games themselves. I do remember seeing something about being able to download them before the physical copies arrive, but now I can't seem to find where it said that. When and if I find it again I will let you know.

Jaymi - open origin itself and see if the cover pictures are there.  If you mouse over them, they should say "download".  That's how you'll know.

They aren't showing yet, but I purchased them last night and they say it may take 24 hours to appear on my list, so I'll keep checking. I'm going back over there via the link to pick up Monte Vista. With the sale price it's cheaper to get Monte Vista through Origin and then spend $20 getting 2,040 simpoints, so I only spend about $30 instead of $35. Plus I get more simpoints for less.  ;D
