For some reason I think it was the other way around. I think Katy Perry approached EA saying she liked the game and offered to add publicity. Not only would it help gain a few extra bucks for EA but it wouldn't be a sour deal for Perry either. I'm saying this because she used to be kinda big a year or two ago but now I think she's slipping a bit.  :-\ I like her music though, the style and stuff.

Working with a game like the sims does give an artist a boost. It's one of the best games sold world wide, so there have to be people that see her in game or in trailers and think: "why not buy an album?"

I just find Katy trying too hard to be young. But well, if this boosts her career then good for her. =D But I would've really liked to see Lady Gaga's bubble dress sims version.

There is a new video on Simprograms, it's a short producers' walkthrough.

And I had said I wouldn't buy this one... it's getting harder and harder to resist!

Bella, you'll give in. ;)

I agree that Katy went up to EA and asked them to feature, but I don't necessarily think that's something to look down on. At least she's not trying to boost her music sales by doing anything stupid or outrageous like most celebs these days. :)

It's ok Bella, I had also said in the past I wasn't that excited about it and wasn't sure if I would get it. I've also recently given in and said I'm getting it lol. I mean if we didn't our sims collection would be incomplete!  ;D Also, the new skills and objects make it cool, we can opt out of simport if we don't want it! I know if I share memories I could get free things but I have yet to share a single memory lol.

I think Katie Perry is a good choice, she always remind me a little off a sim. I think lady Gaga costumes is a little daring lol. :P

I really want to see the new townies more than anything. I need to start preparing my DecaDynasty early!

I wonder what new recipes and ingredients they will add. I think there will be a fruit as one of them.

Guys you do realize this isn't the first time she had anything to do with EA or the Sims Series, right? If you remember back in Sims 2, she recorded her song, "Hot n Cold" in Simlish for the last Sims 2 EP, Apartment Life.

How much time do I have to preorder the Katy Perry Version? I want to wait, and try to get my free SP with it.  :)

Never got into sims 1 or 2 so I had no idea! Probably til the day before it comes out I would think.

You know, I said I'd never get Late Night.  I also said I'd never get Pets.  Yep, have them both now.   :P

In Katy Perry's defense, the Sims 1 version of Superstar had celebrities like Avril Lange, Christina Aguilera and Freddy Prinze Jr.  All three of them were barely famous at the time.  It did have Marylin Monroe, too, but she doesn't count:  she wasn't exactly in a position to say no.

Marian, you just put a huge smile on my face, with that link, and the excitement, of tofu! As a fellow vegetarian, I couldn't be more excited that EA is finally putting proper use in the veggie trait!  ;D

Sounds awesome! My favorite statement was "But beware – if you send your magician to your friend’s game, they might come back a little bit more dead than they were when you sent them." Hehe that's hilarious!! I can wait for it though, my graphic card comes before Showtime!  ;D

Wowza! In the section about Genies...

Quote
10. Free the Genie. If you have a high relationship with the genie, you can try to free it from its lamp. But wishing alone won’t do the trick… you’ll go through a process of 4 different opportunities to complete this. First, you put the lamp in the fridge to “freeze the lamp”. Next, you put it in the oven to “heat the lamp”. Thirdly, you go and explore the catacombs (at the graveyard) with the lamp. Finally, you just summon the genie one more time and they are released from the lamp forever.
A freed genie is a full member of your household, and like the other supernaturals has some special powers. They can magically clean Sims, which not only puts the hygiene bar right up but also gives a special moodlet from being so clean. They can banish Sims, which randomly sends the Sim to a point really far away on the map. My favourite power is that they can summon food. You can choose what to summon from a list of almost every food in the game (except Ambrosia), and the food they summon is always perfect quality.

I love this EP already!
