Sorry, there isn't much news about right now.. hence not many updates. Then again, maybe I'm just very rusty. Still, today the European release dates for the Sims Unleashed add-on and the Sims Deluxe Edition have been announced. You should be able to pick both of them up from your local games store on the 4th October. This date is currently confirmed for Germany and England, and is almost certain to be correct for all of Europe.
