well, there is a game launcher with Sims 2 but people bypass it and still play the game OK - hopefully that will be the same for sims 3

the screenshot I linked to looked like someone being online and needing to be able to push that big 'play' button in the middle to go into the game through the internet, I hope thats not what it really is but it sure does look like it..but who knows

From Snootysims

Fansite event reports
Here's another English report from the Dutch fanevent; Patricia made a detailed report about the fanday where she writes about making a Sim and what she did with it.
Find it here: http://sims3nieuws.blogspot.com/2009/05/sims-3-english-fanfest-report-patricia.html

There was a fanevent in Brazil as well and O Sim BR was invited to that one. A long report was written with info about CAS, the Neighborhood and Build&Buy mode.
Check it here: http://www.osimbr.net/homets3.php?pagina=thesims3/evento_en

New Sims 3 site II
There's a new link found for the upcoming new Sims3.com. It's this one: http://llnw.thesims3.com/

SimPrograms managed to get several movies from that site and posted them here: http://www.simprograms.com/a-few-more-videos-on-youtube-from-the-sims-3-website/#more-6479

Site update
And lastly, another info-update from the Dutch fanevent. Today, a list of all the ingredients and their price.

Thanks to Sim Times for the find.

TheSims3.com updated with the news that there's a CAS demo available but only in Apple Stores.

Snootysims update:



German site PC Games again posted some more Sims 3 pictures which you can find here: http://www.pcgames.de/aid,684838/Die-Sims-3-Mehr-als-30-neue-Screenshots-zeigen-zum-Beispiel-das-Tutorial/PC/News/

CAS demo?
For some reason, EA has removed any signs of a CAS demo (as reported yesterday) from their sites. It's an odd move but we'll keep an eye on any new info about this.

Site update
The last part of the Dutch Sims 3 event has been posted in the form of a small preview.
Check it here: http://www.snootysims.com/thesims3index.php?id=fanday



Gamespot posted a few Sims 3 updates; 13 screenshots from the Riverview neighborhood and a new movie starring Susan Boyle. Check the links here:

Highly doubtful, but those who buy or pirate the bloody thing can always hope.

Not to get personal, but you are beginning to sound like a feedback loop or a broken record... Cheesy
