    I hope that it will come on actual disc this time and not like ”code in the box” thing.

    So they give the retail option for the first two worlds, decide not to for Lunar Lakes, Lucky Palms, and Sunlit Tides, and then suddenly they decide to do retail again for Monte Vista? How does that make any sense?

      I Totally Agree With That Statement :)

      It’s EA, they don’t make sense most of the time.

      They were probably just testing which way would earn them more money ;) . Depending on where you live, getting a retail version is much cheaper that paying for the world with simpoints because of the exchange rate differences.

        This’ll be the first store world I buy, period. It will be my Christmas gift to myself. I am so in love with this World, which it feels awkward calling it a world when it is just an open City and I do, like many, hope they make it possible to vacation in the other worlds. Then i’d have to buy Sunlit Tides to go to Virtual Hawaii.

      i Don’t think there will be a gold version if it is sold in stores.

    Great news about the retail version! Here’s hoping it’s widely available in the UK. :)

    Oooh I wanna see some pictures!!! :)

    Looks amazing and cant wait. My only fear will probably be the price of the world.

    I am so glad they are doing a retail version!

    This way I can get it from Amazon (because I know I will have Amazon gift cards for Christmas) instead of scraping up cash for Simpoints, also because this way I can get it and hopefully the new SP around the same time. This will be so awesome since I already know I will be getting Seasons for Christmas!

    I’m excited to hear there will be new clothing and other objects – I hope clothing is more than one outfit per YA/A gender though!

    I agree with you Amy. I sure hope they have more outfits and hair this time. Maybe 3 outfits and 3 hairs for both men and women that are completely re-color able.
