The first listing of “The Sims 3 Refresh” appeared alongside Uberkonzol’s Sims 3 Seasons listing, but I was cautious about posting since their release date was scheduled for June 22nd. Since then, two more listings have appeared (along with Seasons), one of which shows an August 17th release date. Thanks to Rincon Del Simmer for gathering all the info.
I’m still a little skeptic on what this game may be (SP 8 maybe?), however the latest listing comes from Spain’s Game Distributor EuroVideo. Owning a distribution myself, I know that manufacturers (in this case the game publisher) give distributors a 4-6 month notice for all unannounced/future products. This allows for the distributor and the retailer to prepare SKU’s and create their virtual inventory. Is it true? Is it bunk? What is it? Only time will tell!
