For those expecting the newest version of The Sims to be here in under a month, it seems to be that this will not be the case. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but that is how things look.
EA has issued the following statement.
"We are evaluating the launch window. The game looks great and in the near future we'll have more information."
How late it is going to be delayed is anyone's guess at this time and at TSZ, we will be keeping track and informing you of what is going on. The general concensus appears to be that EA/Maxis would rather delay the release of TS3 in order to iron things out as well as they can rather than release a product that will have a lot of disappointed gamers up in arms over bugs and other issues.
