The Sims 3 - Check this out!
Written at 16:05 by Andy - 0 comments.

On the official website for The Sims 3 , a trailer video has been released and there are also some new screenshots in the different sections.

Also, recently, a fan event was held at EA in California and Josh from Worldsims, which is one of our affiliate sites, was able to attend. While he was there, he held a live blogging session, which me, ChEeTaH and Rosana were part of. I took the transcript and tidied it up so click here to read about what looks like it could be a great game.
