Open letter to Maxis regarding The Sims Deluxe
Written at 03:35 by the Webmaster
Last week Maxis released a press release about The Sims Deluxe. People who already have The Sims and Livin' Large are able to get a $10 rebate (on the total price of $40) if they still have a proof of purchase and live in the USA or Canada. We as Sim-fans of the first hour think that's a complete rip-off, and so we want Maxis to put the extras available as free download on the official site
. I've written an open letter on this site, and posted it on several forums including TheSimsResource
, the newsgroups alt.games.the-sims
, and the official site's BBS. To read the letter, please go to this page
. Comments appreciated!
