Why don't they just get rid of the Limited Edition and just include the code with all the Pets expansions, it's just confusing people! I'm pretty sure these "exclusive items" are included in the non-Limited Edition anyway, just in Buy Debug mode or something. EA aren't very smart when it comes with pricing and free stuff...
The people who will only get into The Sims 3 after the release of Pets will definitely be the ones who will be ripped off the most. It's not their fault they didn't discover an interest in the game sooner.
One thing that needs to happen with this EP...there needs to be some kind of reference to LOLcats somewhere in the game, whether it be in the name of an object or some other method. I'm looking forward to seeing people's LOLcats in The Sims 3!
Even if the petshop stuff is just for the limited edition, i'm sure someone will make a mod or something and access it for all! i just hope you can ride side-saddle - my victorian women might miss out! i wonder if they will count as family members cause if so, then as i love playing families with 6 kids i might not be able to get pets hopefully it will be a seperate menu option, on the other side of the screen or something.
The first picture definitely reminds me of Riverview, especially with the dirt path leading to that barn in the background. The blue and brown building is most likely the new Equestrian centre. The alleyway where the boy gets beat up is definitely new to me. Maybe some shots were in a modified Riverview, and some were in a brand new place? Probably not the most organized way to make a trailer but it's possible. I'm hoping we do get a new rural town, horses alone would make a new world worth it. We'll need some nice dirt trails to go riding on! Huh...maybe ATV's could be another vehicle type to have in a future EP!
I missed the Pets EP in previous game, so I am no way going to miss this one. World Animal Day or not.
You didn't really miss much. The pets were disappointing, cute but disappointing. But they were all we had so we had to like them. I think, we will understand how below the bar EA performed with TS2 pets, when TS3 pets EP comes out, if TS3 pets are as awesome as seen on the trailer.
I so wish that there will be cows, goats, hens or sheeps that we can feed and take milk/wool from them and sell it. I want to have a farm with these animals. Just pets as we had in sims 2 is a bit repetitive, although you can give them traits now. Horses - ok, but more farm animals would really be a great addition to the game. But maybe they announce them at some point. Hope dies last.
They know very well with our response to Generations that people don't like being cut short on things like items and interactions - and their response is to leave out a critical element from the "main" game? EA's proving to be ridiculously greedy and the game isn't even out yet.
