I'd say its pretty good that it will be happening, in my opinion people have been asking so many times to have pets in their games and I don't blame anyone for that, they are the best household campanion and not only that imagine the possibilities what you can do with stories and movies if it does go to plan.

Its too awesome to think of...

I dont know somehow it just doesn't interest me that much, I seem to want spore so much more than Pets maybe if EA did something special with the trailer and the dog looks odd and out of place not simmish, but hey I'll get it if my PC can manage it with Spore installed

i cant post a pic so go to my website :) T.H.C.G.

I hope there's more than just dogs and cats, though. I want my sims to have more of a variety of choices, like ferrets, hamsters, birds, and monkeys! And what about zoos? Zoos would be totally awesome!

Also, I really hope "The Sims 2 Pets" is only a working title. Maxis usually comes up with such clever names.

Are you guys as excited as I am? I can't possibly wait until they officially announce it. I want to see more! "Teaser" trailer is such an appropriate name. It's like letting you smell a fresh batch of cookies, and then yanking them away!

I think the Animal Kingdom would be a very good expansion pack name to include all those hopeful zoo, pets and farm animals too, I wouldn't mind a couple of mystic and forest animals too, monkeys, tigers and lions and even the unicorn and pegasus would be cool for movies and stories etc.

Now were talking a good expansion pack.

I have to agree with you there, even pets on sims1 were at least part of an expansion and not THE expansion itself.

All of you need to calm down. Those are pre-renders, meant to look better than what they are going to look like. Compare the sims on your game box to the ones in your game, the ones on the box are smooth looking with soft hair, but the ones in the game are not very smooth at all. You also need to take into their track record of including game stopping glitches with it and not fixing them until 4 weeks later or in the next booster pack. I wouldn't start talking about your sims owning their very own guinea pig either, their idea of pets is only dogs and cats and other animals might be tossed in as a poorly made object. Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

Probably because of your (and mine aswell) graphic's card. You have to have a good graphics card and set everything on high, and set the "smooth edges" on all the way to "smooth."

I guess a ATI Radeon X1600 MB256 isn't good these days. If you look at them you will notice that shoulders are rounder and faces are softer on the box art than in game.

Oh.....sorry. Actually I looked on the package and the sims look pretty much just as crappy as they are in the game.

... I'm rather disappointed, those aren't very cute at all. They look so blocky! And the cats' eyes look like they are bugging out of their head.

Heh, I'm so picky :P

Sorry if I came across as rude, I am tired because I need sleep and am annoyed at how the bbs users are fawning over them. Anyways, is it just me or does the orange cat look like it was made out of rubber?

I'm in the camp with the folks that want more than just pets, and I do love animals - but if I'm going to invest in a new expansion my Sims are going to have to have more to do than play with/train/breed pets. I'm always hoping for new building options, interactions, and things like that. I would really love to be able to choose a lifetime aspiration for Sims, for example, instead of having them randomly assigned lifetime goals that don't match my concept of them.

Hmm, this sounds interesting, I just hope we have more with the birds then just play and such. I liked the cockatoo and other parrot in The Sims 1, they were cool, I also hope this doesn't conflict with the Insim and the Inteen.

I'm looking forward to this. I've wanted my Sims to have pets ever since I got the original Sims 2, if only to terrorise my Sims with the great black psycho barky-beast that is my dog.

Although, you have to remember that these people are game-designers, not bloody miracle workers.

And if there are werewolves or werecats or whatever included, I'm going to jump up and run around the house in glee. I remember wanted werewolves to be in Nightlife.

I would like to clear up the little matter of my sanity as it has come into question. I am not in any way, shape, or form, sane. Insane? Hell yes!

People keep calling me 'evil.' I must be doing something right.

Yeah, I'm not completely happy with their looks. In one way, they look very realistic, but in another way, they look like overly-exaggerated 3d stock clip art. And their movements are very stiff and unrealistic. However, I have no doubt that they'll fine tune the animals beyond what we saw in the video today.

As for the bbs, I hardly go there anymore, since everyone on it seems to be ten years old. If I want to listen to a slightly more intelligent conversation, I come here instead.

I agree with you... They're like kids.. hmmph... always talk about something imposibble...

----
For the rubber cat.. I Think It's just intro.. They havent finish the game completely.. It's just rough Idea.. I bet when the game released.. The cat will Be like polygons.. hahahhaa... They like to reduce the polycount...

Maybe the Gizzly bear ( Unleashed/hot date) will be back too... and salvage food in the trashcan... :D

They look cute, though they don't seem to "fit" with the game completely. Oh, well, they'll improve them, or if not, I'm sure simmers out there will be able to make better pets.
