Small TSO Play Test Update
Until recently, it wasn't possible for Europeans to select their country after being invited for the TSO play test. The problem was that you had to select a US state, but couldn't select a country. However, the state list has been updated and now includes Canada (split up in its states), the countries Australia, the UK (split up into England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), Ireland, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and other (South-American) countries. For German people there is a different rule, which you can read about here. The other European countries where The Sims has been released (like the Netherlands, Belgium and others), as well as for the Asian countries, cannot be selected. This might change however, if there's news we'll let you know. Note that shipping costs to these countries are $10 and not $5 as told by Maxis before! The $5 only applies to citizens of the USA, not even Canada. The play test will probably run until the end of November (included 2 weeks play time after the release), so that's just a bit more than a month left. If the play test lasts longer for Europeans (where the game is released a month later) is yet unknown.
