Fan site SimOperations
has found the official Sims 3 soundtrack on EA Trax
. You can listen
to the 15 tracks online. With some tricks, you can get the playlist XML file
, which shows the locations of the original MP3 files - which you can download and play on any other player which supports MP3 (hint: view the source of the playlist file, if you don't immediately see the URLs). The playlist also shows there should be 16 tracks, but number 9 seems to be missing. It may be revealed with the release of the Sims 3. The music was composed by Steve Jablonsky.

TS3: Disc-based copy protection, no SecuROM
Written at 18:37 by ChEeTaH

EA has sent out a message today saying that The Sims 3 will use disc-based copy protection, just like the Sims 2. Online validation will not be included. Also, in a topic
on the BBS MaxoidHydra confirms the disc-based version of SecuROM will also not be on the Sims 3. The copy protection that is used, is not specified by EA, but it may be possible that EA steps back to SafeDisc, which was used with the Sims 2 until Seasons. Besides that, a serial number will, as usual, be required to install the game. Whether this new policy will be applied company-wide, over all new EA games, is also unsure. Read on for Rod Humble's letter
. Please note that the letter does not say no form of copy protection (DRM) will be used at all.
