Sims2 Ultimate Collection
Just keep on working it, EA. Just pretend we didn't just catch you with your nickers on your ankles, and your spyware in our files.
It's a classic, we're migrating everyone to the easiest one for us to support.
Given that Origin doesn't give game support, they support the digital marketing of the game - it's about purchase support, not game support.
My guess is that if you have any digital expansions - this is going to be the only way you keep them.

Indeed, that is exactly what I think. If I know a bit about the way the guys at EA think, at the very least you can be sure that this "ultimate collection" requires that Origin is installed and active on your system. Otherwise it will most likely not play. Secondly, it may mean that parts of the game can only be accessed while online, and it may even result in many of he old mods and other custom content to become invalid/incompatible.
How, I ask you, can ANY of that be a good thing?
I have a couple of games from Origin (Peggle and Plants vs Zombies) and neither of them need Origin started to play the game or to save. I had to start Origin to download them, and that is it.
I do agree that its a worry about SimPE and any mods using the AL engine; we have no idea if the engine has been updated.
