Coming Tuesday, there will be a Pets presentation in Holland. Producers George Pigula en Nicole Jenkins will show the Pets expansion to several fansites and Snooty Sims will be there too.
With all those many previews and screenshots around, I can't imagine anyone still have questions, but in case you do, just give me a mail and I'll do my very best to get the answer.

Sims Social beats Farmville 9 September
Ok, I'm not really following The Sims Social but found this news quite interesting: The Sims Social just beat Farmville on Facebook in Daily Amount of Users (9,3 million).
Quite an achievement in such a short time. Only game to beat now is CityVille, ironically a SimCity clone.
Check the article here: Gamasutra article
Update: The Sims Social has now beaten Farmville also with amount of users, being over 40 million.

Update: As with all Sims games, this demo does not come without some problems. Several people that installed it, reported they are missing custom content and/or their saved games.
