Sims4 right now? Are you all crazy? I was one that warned that it was too soon for Sims3, anyway who cares? I don't know how far the "future" is, I always lived at least 20 years ahead of my own time. Investing on whatever right now is a flop for both producers and consumers. We are (don't know how far) getting closer and closer to the new technology that will change the face of the electronic world. Soon, personal computers will be history, computers self will be museum object. I'm waiting for the technology I call "Transmission of Sensorial Impulses" (It's not invented yet, so probably it will be called differently) and this will place as "Dinossaur Age" all the present knowledgements. Companies are just slurving around because they probably know that no matter how they try to please their buyers, they are just investing on nothing, so nothing is important. Simmers are soooo worried about the puppets they got to play with. They are just that, liveless puppets struggling to mean something. No matter if you are a teen or 100 years old, use your brain to sniff a little the "future". Unfortunately human beings thing too slow (when they eventually Think!). Sorry, just venting out a bit.  Grin

If there if there is a Sims 4, it's at least 5 more EP's away from Sims 3 and it's going to take a lot more money to convince EA that they want to do it.
More like wishful thinking on the part of those who don't like their Sims 3 right now. I think EA will probably end up ending the series at 3 because they've just about worn out the entire premise.
They've done everything possible except fix the game.

I suspect the sim franchise's fate was sealed way back when Will Wright left.

Hi Nonni, I've not heard that particular rumor as yet. Another stuff pack comes out next week, but 4 might be too much to hope for at this point. Three still needs a lot of work from what we've seen so far.

At this point, anything you read about Sims 4 should be considered rumour, unless it comes directly from EA.

Yup, EAxis is pretty good about advance announcements (are they ever!, complete with sales pitch). I think Will Wright's departure is somewhagt like Sid Mieir's departure from developing at Fireaxis would be. However, the new programmers on the project will continue to gain experience and, hopefully, develop steady improvements to three. If so, it would be a good launching platform for a new version later.

Thanks for the input.

A friend of mine is a programmer and she says technology changes so fast there is no keeping up. My son is also a programmer but he doesn't develop for computers or PC and he absolutely and vehemently refuses to use any Microsoft product unless it is the only platform available for a project requested by his employer.

Sadly, I sometimes have to agree.

You are right, Joy. *sigh*

Aww, why shucks, m'aam. Seriously, after 44 years of programming computers, I've learned to cut folks some slack. However, there is no excuse for releasing some of the code they do without adequate testing, particularly retro-testing to make sure the new stuff doesn't break the old. And yeah, I'm really, really old. I was there when they drew up the specs for dirt.

I think we may be from the same Triassic Period. lol

Actually, the long-awaited Sims Medieval (uses Sims 3 engine) is announced for release next month (I think). Try http://www.ea.com/the-sims-medieval and http://www.ea.com/news/get-medieval-with-new-series-from-the-sims-studio and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sims_Medieval . It has possibilities and appears to re-institute magic (wizards, witches, and such). Also knights and, apparently, combat. It bills itself as a whole new game, perhaps this is the source of the Sims 4 rumor?

I think the medieval theme is laughable.

Nah, go ahead and see if you can install it. If it installs, then have fun with it.
