Sims2 Ultimate Collection
#11 15-07-2014 
I don't mind trying it out - I have all the disks (apart from the mini-holiday, and holiday pack), so if it stuffs me up I can always uninstall it and reinstall my games.

However. They haven't sent me the email.

BO - I doubt they will require Origin and online to play - they don't with Sims3 or other games. They like Origin to be up - but you can still play with no internet access (and I uninstalled Origin because of this).

Kiri, I applaud your trust in the good intentions of EA. However, I do not share it because I believe it would be misguided. Maybe so far Origin wasn't required to run during TS3 play, but who guarantees that it will stay this way?

No, I don't trust those guys any further than a baby can throw 'em. I've seen enough proof of their evil ways, thank-you-very-much.

I haven't gotten an eMAIL, and I can't find anything at Origen for Sims 2 at all. Ginnie <muttering nasty words about Origen under her breath>

I just got it on Origin. *downloading* I took the opportunity to delete and reinstall Windows 8 on my laptop. Thus, everything is all clean again! Big Grin

Hope this Ultimate Collection will work fine; but I bet that I will still be obliged to go through the usual process discussed here on LeeFish. Wink

LMAO Lee'! Tinfoil hat! xD

It's been confirmed that this collection plays without being connected to Origin and offline. Really I think it's a marketing ploy to make themselves look good. So while it is EA I don't think the intent here is to be evil, I think they are just trying to rally good feeling in the hope we all buy sims 4.

You're certainly right, jo&sarah.

Aaargh, I won't be able to resist to the purchase of The Sims 4, even if that game doesn't delight me that much a priori.

I got it earlier today. But like I said elsewhere, I don't plan on downloading. My nice, shiny new Ultimate Collection will be sitting there gathering dust.. until the day I can't use my discs at all anymore.

* mustluvcatz admits she caved in and submitted her email for the CAS demo though
(That I'd actually kind of like to get.)

I got the eMAIL (finally), reved up Origen, but only see Sims 2 Store version, not Ultimate. Back to EA's chat room. Sigh. Ginnie


Sorry, that is a members only option
