Reason of delay
Some wonder why the Sims 3 was delayed. Most think it is for fixing bugs, but in a Gamespot article, EA made clear that this extra time is used to market the game better. They see The Sims 3 as one of the most important launches in their company's history.

Though Prima's Sims 3 guide is most likely already finished, with the delay of Sims 3, they also decided to delay their guide to June 2nd.
The Sims 3 won't be released worldwide on June 2nd. That date is only for America and Canada. Europe and other countries get it a few days later:
June 4th: Netherlands, Germany, France, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Australia.
June 5th: Uk, Italy, Brazil, Poland, Russia, Czech.
