June 27thOk. It's been a month now, and there's been no new information about The Sims 3. The official EA site has not been updated, and there have been no new articles written about the game. For now, iSims3 will be temporarily inactive until more information is released on the subject at hand. Thanks for coming to the site, and we'll be returning as soon as The Sims 3 becomes more widely announced.
Sorry it's been so long. The site was experiencing some technical difficulties.
You've probably all already seen the new screenshot from The Sims 3, but I've posted it below for anyone who hasn't. Click here for a bigger picture.

GamesIndustry.biz released an interesting article about The Sims 3 prototype:
"You're in charge of the second most popular videogames franchise in the western world in recent years. Your studio produces a game so big - both in terms of sales and in terms of cachet - that it's actually become a label in its own right within the world's biggest third-party publisher. In total, it's sold 95 million pieces of software in twenty-two languages since its inception, and come to think of it, it's the only PC gaming property that's actually bigger than Blizzard's Warcraft juggernaut."

We've added a new page: 1Up Q & A

Well, not much happened over there at the main site. In fact, nothing happened at all. It doesn't really surprise me though. We probably won't find out a whole lot more for at least a month at the rate we're going.
Our What We Already Know page has been updated with information from Gamestar, courtesty of InfiniteSims.
There really haven't been any Sims 3 updates in the past week. Hopefully EAxis will update the main Sims 3 site on Thursday, like they do to the Sims 2 site every Thursday. Tomorrow may bring new information, or it could just be yet another disappointment from EAxis.
A new wallpaper has been found on the BBS. Click here for the link.

Gamestop has also announced a pre-order release. Their's is set for April 7th, 2009, and that date is also quite likely to change. It has been priced at $49.99, which could actually be true. The Sims and The Sims 2 were both sold at the same price upon release.
Amazon has released a pre-order for The Sims 3. It is set for January 1st, 2009, but that date is quite unlikely, as it is hard to know so far in advance what the release date actually will be. There is no price included.

The release of much anticipated The Sims 3 is said to be in early 2009. If this holds true, than we're less than a year from the release of what could possibly be the most amazing game in the history of gaming altogether. Not much is known yet about this amazing game, except for everything listed on the "What We Already Know" page found to the left of this column. We will work to keep you updated on new and exciting information about The Sims 3, along with TheSims3.com and other various fansites.
The Sims 2 was released approximately four years ago, on September 17th, 2004. This game was revolutionary to the way our sims live their lives. It add a TON more features than had been included in The Sims. It was a dramatic step forward, and the game entertained thousands for hours on end. Then came the release of the first expansion pack: University. This game added a new age group called "Young Adults" who would then attend the newest element to the game: college. After another six months or so, Nightlife was released, adding downtown and cars to the game. Open for Business added the most unique element to the game: owning business of all kinds, from toy shops to real estate offices to beauty salons, this game was definitely the most innovative in the way we play the game.
