E3 news 15 May
The E3 will start in a couple days and many games that will come out between now and next year will be shown and also all the new gaming hardware. Although besides that Nightlife will be shown there, this is not specifically Sims 2 news. However I still wanted to show how important this event is for the game industry.
All the Nightlife and Sims 2 for consoles news from the show can be found here on SnootySims and the Spore news ofcourse on SnooySpore.com.

There is an incredibly amount of E3 news to be found already but here are 2 links with info about the show:

USA today

Misc. news 10 May
Spore news is pouring in from the E3, however until now, there is still absolutely no word about the Sims. However, E3 has just opened for the 'general public' and if the teaser will be shown today, we should get some pics from it.
Also, several Sim sites will visit the E3 like Sims network and Simszone.co.uk and no doubt they will post about it when they return.

A bit late with this, but New York Times posted an interesting article about The Sims. Several professors and psychiatrics as well as children talk about it. Find it here: New York Times article

And lastly, a bit of site news; If you scroll down a bit, you see I added an ad. Nothing special ofcourse but it's the first time ever and wanted to mention it anyway.
It's more because I'm interested in the technical aspect. In a Forum topic I wrote some statistics.

Nightlife releasedate 25 May
Nightlife's release date is still quite a mystery. All online shops have different dates. But now, on the official French Sims site, they show the date, September 15. If this really is the release date for France, America will most likely recieve it as soon as September 10.
