Generations on ESRB 4 March
The Sims 3: Generations has appeared on the website of ESRB (thanks Infinite Sims), which basically means the title is confirmed. ESRB is the company that gives age ratings to games. Infinite Sims claims that only developed games get such a rating.

Go check it out here: Barnacle Bay.

Generations trailer 11 March
The Sims 3: Generations is now definitely confirmed as the trailer for the 4th expansionpack has been released. However, this trailer is removed for copyright reasons. There are several copies still online, but since they may be removed at some point, best way is to go to Youtube.com, search for "sims generations" and sort by Upload date.
I made a page with screenshots from this trailer here: Video screenshots.

Apparently there's also a trailer for Unleashed for consoles (and maybe PC) coming out in october, but it's low quality and it almost looks as if the animals were added afterwards.


Future Store set 16 March
       On their Facebook page, EA posted a few preview screens of an upcoming new Sims3Store set.

Surprise on March 31 22 March
The Sims 3 Facebook page posted a message that a big news event will take place on March 31.
Check this message here: Sims 3 Facebook.

Could this be the announcement we're all waiting for? Or maybe just an early April fools joke...
Update: The 'Super Secret Surprise' has been delayed til April 5 though they will still share something on March 31.
