ok. some of you will not be happy. you get the disk for the console version and download vouchers for the iphone AND PC Version. they expire in april of next year.

still not bad for 35, eh?


Can you snap a picture? If the packaging looks like garbage and has Best Buy logos slathered about, I'll just cancel it and order the PC version from Amazon for $20.

regular retail disc in regular retail packaging. only difference is over the UPC there is a not for resale sticker over it. but it is on the cellophane. two paper inserts with redeemable download codes for pc version and iphone. all of it was bundled in a carboard box that is slightly larger then a ps3 game case. i can take a picture as soon as i charge the battery. or if my girlfriend comes home between now and then i cant as it is a gift for her.

Good to know. Can you tell - is the PC version PC/Mac - or just PC? Sims games are usually for Mac too, but if it's just a code then maybe not...

Was wondering the same thing, just got back from BBY though and nothing on the package says it is a good for a MAC download. It is just the digital download for PC, which is kind of weird since they are giving you an iphone download. Still a great deal though.

Torn between this and the 360 version alone for $30 on Amazon. Probably just better to save the money since I don't think anyone I know would be interested in the game.

360 version has a bug that will freeze your console when you try to save. After doing a marathon session several times, it will destroy your interest in the game.

Yeah, I heard that. Apparently EA is working on a patch for the problem so hopefully it will be out before I get around to playing the game. Probably would be a while anyway since my backlog is fairly large. :D

This is a great value, especially for anyone who was going to buy the standard version off Amazon or BB for $35. Some pics -

Sorry for the quality, iphone camera. Anyway, notice the plastic is sealed on the ps3 copy and the 2 cards have codes on the back. Great if you only want PC or PS3/360 and want to sell the other copy online.

So the PC one is a download code. Too bad my PC can't handle Sims 3. It can barely handle Sims 2.

Man, I just bought the Sims 3 for my girlfriend yesterday, so I guess I'll be exchanging it.

don't forget this is carried in the PC gaming area, not with the console games..I was torn about getting this b/c I really want to check out the Sims 3 on a console, but would not take advantage of the PC and iPod offerings..thus either having to give them away or sell the codes on here..which could work out..I just don't know! :roll:
