Post The Sims 3: Showtime! (Rumors and Images Thread!)
Today, an influx of rumors of the 6th expansion pack have come out. Nothing is set in stone, but this may just be the next expansion. Here's a thread for images / stories that leak this EP.

The first image was of a survey that a member of the Sims 3 fourms took. Take a peek!

Story Source: SimVIP

Second, a dutch site called MicroMedia Is listing an expansion pack release date for "The Sims 3: Showtime!" for March 8th!

And Thirdly, another Dutch site called fun8 has listed Showtime! for the same date!

What do you guys think about this? Real for fake? We've seen fake stuff before!

Sounds interesting.

Although the whole idea of "Showtime!" threads on the feet of many aspects from other expansions. Like celebrities and the film career.

I've always liked the idea of having our sims be able to actually make their own films/tv shows. (and not just walk into a rabbit hole and do it) Properly do it like in that game "The Movies".

The title "Showtime" fits that rumour of a black and white cover in the other thread too.

Rumored Description floating around... Interesting!

Quote:
With The Sims™ 3 Showtime your sims can enjoy new activites! Your Sims will have the oppurtunity to become a proud member of the few clubs around the new town Simburb. Fond of flowers? Well, the gardening club is the perfect choice for you. Showcase your best talent and earn some extra cash. Why don’t you try the soccer or golf club? Too tiring for you? Well don’t worry then. You can always just chill with your family at the zoo or have a piñata party.

Features
◘ Sports are back(football, basketball, tennis and golf)
◘ Clubs (gardening, cooking, painting and country club)
◘ New objects (ping pong table, pool slides, hammock and many more)
◘ Rabbit Holes (zoo and circus)
◘ Venues (aqua park and outdoor cinema)

This could be completely fake, who knows. But it does sound a bit like EA, however, sounds a little fake.

If this pack doesn't have vegas stuff I'll be pissed.

My party animal sims are getting bored and want to go to the casinos to gamble.

I believe that Showtime is probably true, however this description most likely isn't. It doesn't have much of anything to do with the title of 'Showtime', it reveals the supposed name of the world which doesn't seem like a name EA would choose for a world, and also we don't have full out descriptions like this leaked to us. We don't get this kind of stuff until it is official. It's most likely just somebody trolling us all.

And I really do hope it is because that sounds lame. Showtime should be about musicals and cool stuff like that, not circuses and zoos. What in the world does that even have to do with 'Showtime'? Seriously.

I don't believe any of that. None of it even sounds like "showtime". Showtime makes me think of the entertainment industry (films, tv shows, music, theatre , musicals, modelling, comedy acts etc)...if the game ended up being the above instead it would be really disappointing.

EA are bad, but they're not THAT bad.

I'll take the aqua park and outdoor cinema though. Zoo and Circus sound neat but if they're rabbit holes I'm not interested.

Yeah the source of that's earliest mention is a comment by someone by "Gary" on SimVIP. The items don't sound horrid, but the title doesn't match. It doesn't match EA's writing style either. It's just laid out like it. But yeah, that sounds WAY too much like Generations. Enough of adding new things to do, we need new concepts and life forms.

...so basically Free Time without the hobbies? That sounds a little underdeveloped.

The most worrying thing to me at the moment is the fact that in the second picture there's a listing for a Limited Edition version of the expansion pack. Looks like we'll be getting them from now on. :no:

I got the limited edition of pets, but I'm still wondering... what the hell is the difference?. I mean, it''s the same price tag, it does you no better, but still rewards you with the items. What i mean to say is, the normal edition doesn't seem to be any worse... yet slap on limited and people want it? Huh?

"Venues (aqua park and outdoor cinema)" Venues? Sounds like Rabbit Holes to me.

I agree that sports and clubs don't sound at all like they'd fit in a "Showtime" theme. A circus would, but I sure can't say I want a circus. I think it'd be great to have some really robust tools to make videos/movies with our Sims.

I feel that the theme is correct but not necessarily the description or title. "Showtime" implies that there's some kind of a public performance thing going to happen.

Post Re: The Sims 3: Showtime! (Rumors and Images Thread!)
So someone on the Sims 3 forum posted a link to an old poll about future content for the Sims 3 and some of the things listed of specific interest:

•New ACTIVE entertainment career paths – live in the spotlight! — stunt men jobs.
•Run your own entertainment resort – attract tourists, hire entertainers, keep guests happy! — Run your own entertainment resort to the ground—nix those hotel tycoon games and enjoy tourists and guest motives, The Sims Vacation style.


Could include sports too potentially? This sounds amazing, however I'm NOT liking the creativity behind these recent expansion packs for the Sims 3. I feel as though these types of things would have gone perfectly with Late Night? Maybe there will really be 10 careers. I reallly was dissapointed at the lack of a singing skill in late night with the bands. If this were the case that would be epic.

Maybe they'll also have an excuse the completly revamp the coding and script for the epic fail that was the celebrity system in LN. What a mess! 4 star celebrity children who don't have parents who are even celebrites? C'mon EA you can certainly do better. You created the Sims 2 series which makes the Sims 3 look weak.

But I can definitly see the great potential in an EP like this, imagine stand up comedy, magic tricks, maybe even live games, some sport objects, singing, dancing, theater? If this is all true and there will be lots of great new stuff to experience I for one will be really excited for this EP even if I have to wait for the weather EP.

I'm telling you right now: If the Sims4 doesn't come with weather and seasons in the base game I will personally call EA and scream my head off for the sole purpose of cursing them out and feeling good after doing it.

And a wind instrument, they better add a wind instrument this time if they're covering music again.

Otherwise, they will never be forgiven. Ever. :stare:

Hotel resorts sounds interesting... maybe we'll get actual functioning hotels and apartments now?

It's sounds more like showtime= ''show off'' time, like the clubs are an opportunity for our simmies to show others what they can do.
I like the circus idea unless its a rabbit hole (most likely will be!)
Tbh prefer this idea already to all the rumours about a casino expansion, why would I want that :laugh:

I'm pretty sure that out of the items listen in a sims 3 poll of things simmers would want in the future, casinos topped the list. Except now they've released sets in the store that are supposed to be vegas sets, but they are completed stupid bc they don't add actual vegas GAMES.
So it would make sense that they would add casinos if it topped the list of desired objects.

Sadly, I am not seeing any more information as of yet. But this game seems very Generations-ee... no me gusta.

I don't understand how they expect the prospect of Zoo and Circus rabbit holes to excite anyone.

Rabbit holes are the bane of the sims 3 experience. They replace what would be an interesting location with what might as well be a uniform feature with different words being thrown at you when you walk into them. It lets the creators be lazy too.

If Sims 4 does anything, I hope it banishes rabbit holes forever. I want to actually experience these things with my sim not hear about them. :/

Rabbit holes are like dangling a cocktail sausage in front of your head that came from the buffet table but unfortunately you're not allowed to eat what's on the buffet table. In fact you can't even see the buffet table, it's a hypothetical buffet table. :(
