New poll 22 September
A new poll is posted with the question if Late Night will be the best expansion ever. Click here to vote: New poll.
Last poll question was what you're willing to spend on Barnacle Bay. Bad news for EA. The rumoured price of 1650 points will scare away many people. Only around 10% is willing to pay that amount. And though 10% of all Simplayers is still quite a lot, they may want to reduce the price if they want more buyers. 44% however will not get it no matter what the cost.
