A “Shop Button?” and Create A World-One and The Same?!!!

Today I logged onto the Sims 3 official site hoping the CAW Tool would be available for download.

Instead, this is what I see:

New Update Coming & The Sims 3 Create a World Tool – Beta!

Happy Holidays Simmers!

We wanted to let you know that a new Game Update for The Sims 3 and the release of The Sims™ 3 Create a World Tool – BETA will be coming this month.  Updates are the primary way for us to offer new features for your games, address any issues, and keep you up-to-date on the latest information to support online features.  The upcoming December update will include several items, but we’d like to tell you today about one new feature specifically that we’re really excited about.
Introducing – Shop Mode! You heard right folks. The December update will introduce a button that will allow you to shop from The Sims 3 Store from inside your game. This new feature will enhance your shopping experience at The Sims 3 Store and allow you to access The Sims 3 Store via Shop Mode from the main menu, build or buy mode or during Create-a-Sim. As you purchase new items, they will be added to your catalog, while your game is running.  You can browse the full Store catalog directly from your game and purchase furniture, décor, hair, clothing – without ever closing your game. This is a really exciting new experience for The Sims series, and we look forward to sharing with you!

Create your own worlds for The Sims 3 this December!
Create and share unique new worlds that you design with The Sims 3 Create a World Tool – BETA.  Download for free and step into the shoes of The Sims 3 development team by using the same tools the team uses to create worlds and towns for The Sims 3.
Stay tuned for specific details on the Game Update coming in December including everything it will provide and more news around Create a World Tool – BETA.

While I AM looking forward to the CAW Tool’s release, I’m very suspicious of this update they’ll be releasing. It seems to me that EA keeps thinking up new ways to have access to the consumer’s computer…but if I’m wrong, sue me..

Can anyone say…Spyware?

I really hope this update can be optional and not required. I have no need for some Shop button that reminds me constantly just how greedy EA has become. Besides, I don’t have the money to sit there and buy whatever I see from the Sims 3 Store! that’s why I go online-when I have the money, I hit it up…When I don’t have the money, then I just don’t have the money..Why would I want it there in my face 24/7?

Woe is me…I cannot find the usefulness of this update for the life of me!

EA is going overboard with their advertising…Again, this is just my opinion. They already have so much in the game, on tv, on the internet to advertise all the upcoming stuff and whatnot…It’s driving me mad! They spend more time advertising their products that are “Coming Soon!” than they do helping the people who’ve bought their more recent products-you know, the people with all the update problems, glitches, and bugs?


Rant Ends Here.
