I appreciate it's not the newest of the Sims games (It's 9 years old!!), but it's an all time low, AND if I remember correctly, and going on from something I've just read, it might be a decent heads up for those of you who aren't aware, the key you receive from Steam can also be used on the Origin client (as I did with Bad Company 2 many moons ago). 2 for 1. I dunno give it to a friend

Try it with any EA games you have on your Steam account.



To view the games key on Steam, right click the games title once installed and click 'View CD key'...

Copy the key to clipboard and redeem on Origin, too

Anyhow, as mentioned previously, this is an all time low for The Sims 3, and a cracking price if you fancy a dabble. It's worth mentioning that if you subscribe to Origin Access, The Sims 4 Deluxe is in that vault

You may also own it from the 2013 (man, that was 5 years ago) Humble Origin Bundle.



Create the lives you've always wanted!

Ready to live a freer, more creative life? In The Sims™ 3, you can let your fantasies run wild as you design your ideal world. Start with your Sim, refining each shape, color and personality trait until you get the precise person that pleases you. Design your dream home, but don’t let a grid limit you; place, rotate and stack furniture and walls freely and to your heart’s content.

Once the “hard work” is over, it’s time to be a mentor. Guide your Sim’s path through life, developing a career, finding love, and pursuing dreams and desires. Spending time with friends and family is just as important as mastering painting or accumulating knowledge.

Take things to the next level and record movies of your Sim’s adventures and share them with the ever-growing and thriving community. With a huge catalog of expansion packs and fun objects to discover, there is no end to the possibilities awaiting you. It all begins here; your adventure awaits!

The base game is like the first hit of cocaine that a drug dealer gives you cheap. Once you're hooked, they get you with the DLC. Next thing you know, you are homeless, starving and offering services on the street corner for DLC codes.

Just been having a look on ITAD, brilly and it totals the full DLC for me at the cheapest prices around in excess of £400
Very good price

Crikey
It’s absolutely worth a punt at that price. By far one of my favourites out of all 4 sims and seems it can never get boring (especially with all the custom content and mods you can get online!)(highfive)
Oh well another game for the kiddo lol.

Steam much easier with kids than Origin due to the family sharing feature.
Kiddo has my full Steam Library shared on her Steam account, but My Origin account cant share across.

And no she doesn't get my actual account logged in, i'm not being one of those parents with a mega bill cos their kids bought daft roblox or whatever crap lol.

Yes its a steam issue.
From what i gathered Steam have sold a lot and are waiting on EA sending them keys in batches.
EA have origin so happy to sit and take their time as they want folk paying for it on Origin lol.
Should be ok tomorrow from what i've seen, if drags on then its a Steam refund

Yeah she got her key sorted thanks for the heads up although now she's having trouble getting signed In to the online in the game hahaha
Wish I could justify the double dip. Own most of it on Origin but there's just something about seeing Steam playtime on your profile that's much more fulfilling than Origin playtime X) Glad to see its finally dropped to the prices it aught to be. Worth a try even if you've played 4 - very different to all the other Sims games in my opinion!
Nothing Compared to the Sims 2 on Ps2 , absolutely legendary
