I Kinda want, but I know there's also that game corrupting glitch that I don't think was ever patched. I'll wait and see what the Gamefly deals are tonight before making my purchase.

If your PC can run it well, that's absolutely the definitive version and you have the option of adding on more with the expansions that interest you the most (they'll probably get some sort of discount before the year is done as well). Apparently there are occasional server issues with the console versions, but overall it's just far more restricted.

decided to get the PS3 version. I'll wait for a bundle or a bigger discount for the PC version, would love to get all those add-ons at a discounted price.

Surprisingly, it actually ended up getting patched, after months and months of people e-mailing EA to complain.

It's a 14-meg patch file on the 360, IIRC.

Details about the patch are here:

Not worth getting the console version unless the save glitch was fixed

Sweet and goddamn all at once. Now I gotta seriously considering getting this or not, but got to wait on Gamefly deals and then see.

I Got to admit these days majority of my game collection 3rd party disc wise seems to be EA games.

Not on 360 or PS3, you just upload and download skins/costumes and other template sims people have created.

Personally I still think $15 is still to much as I'm on the edge. Even with the $0.90 knocked off with that 6% is too much. I'd jump on it for sure for if it was $10 as I'm not a major Sims fan but I would like it to play on my PS3. This is more of a deal for big fans and flippers I feel.

I tried playing this on my 360, it doesn't feel good, at all. If you game on PC; get it there.

I actually just got my birthday code a couple of days ago and it does stack. It takes it down to $11.80 w/tax for me but I still can't decide if I really want this. It's been quite some time since I've played a Sims game.

That's what I did, as Steam had everything at the time (4 expansions, 3 stuff packs, and the base game) for either $80 or $90 during the Summer sale.

My birthday isn't until the 17th. I got this on the 1st (along with various other companies' birthday promo coupons) so I figured everyone would get them on the 1st day of their birthday month but I guess that's not the case.

After being registered so long, I think this is one of my first posts. I should really get in the habit of thanking the posters who save me so much money (see: buying games I'd never have bought just because they're cheap so I probably spend more money in the long run... >> <<).

In for one on PS3! Thanks to everyone here and especially you CheapyD!

Damn, mine's on the 8th. Guess I maybe screwed. We'll see come Wednesday if I should get it normal sale price or not then probably.

Hmmm. I'm really tempted here. Considering getting the PC one but really all I want is the Pets expansion. (I know, I know...) How do the expansions play on consoles? Are t hey stand alone and just overly emphasized on whatever the content for the expansion is?

Awesome. I saw this for 19.99 a while back on Amazon and regreted not getting it. So I jumped on this earlier.
