For those waiting until the end of time to complete your Sims 3 collection, take note that The Sims 3 Katy Perry Sweet Treats Stuff Pack, has officially been “Retired”. This means that the game will no longer be “produced” in physical form, or be available digitally from Origin. An EA Community Manager confirmed the news with the following:
Thanks for the patience everyone. Unfortunately I have good news and bad news.
Let’s start with the bad news: This stuff pack has indeed been retired and is not available any more as digital download version.
But the good news is: You can still get it as disc version from almost all major retailers. I checked on the websites of Amazon, Walmart, and Gamestop and the stuff pack was available on all three.
Sorry, that I cannot give you better news!
Another game that has disappeared from Origin is The Sims 3 Showtime: Katy Perry Collector’s Edition. There is no confirmation on whether or not that too has been retired, but my guess is that it has. If you need either of these games in physical form, get them now while they’re still out there!
For one week only, Target is offering a buy one get one 50% off on select Sims 3 games. The Sims 3 Supernatural & The Sims 3 Seasons is included in this deal!
Thanks Sock Puppet!
If you have been waiting for an awesome deal to pop up, well today is your lucky day! Amazon has listed The Sims 3 Showtime for $14.50, and The Sims 3 Showtime Katy Perry Edition for $29.99! No idea how long it will last, so I suggest grabbing this soon!
Thanks to Kilu for the tip!

Sabri5 from MTS has created a series of mods that allows you to choose the chances of a Sim dying in the Box of Danger. Chances range from 5% to 100%, so Pick and Choose your flavor!
-This mod changes the chance of the magic trick failure + chance of EpicFail (death) every time the Box of Danger is used.
-Overrides BoxOfDanger_0xcfc995fa7466b025_XML. It will conflict with any other mod that does the same. Made for the Sims 3 Showtime.
-Compatible with base game version 1.32 and above.
-EA original chance of magic trick failure depends on skill level with an EpicFail (death) chance of 3%. These mods make it so there are slightly increased chances of a failure up to a failure of the trick every time (depending on which flavor you download). And when the Sim fails the trick there is a 5%, 10%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 90%, or 100% chance of EpicFail/death (depending on which flavor you download). The percent chance of failure based on skill is much more reasonable and made to fit better with the chance of EpicFail/death.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Can I get a round of applause for the sixth expansion pack of The Sims 3? Really, we weren’t waiting for anything that this pack offers us and it far from wait we’ve requested. Maybe this is because we haven’t thought about it or do we really do not need this content? In this review you will find out whether The Sims 3 Showtime is just a bad cover of The Sims 3 After Dark or will this expansion pack be a rising star.
Starlight Shores is based on the bigger cities of America and has a luxurious and summer feeling. The town matches the theme of The Sims 3 Showtime perfectly, there are beautiful villa’s and multiple places of entertainment to be found. Unfortunately, the town is quite small, I expected a much larger city but this town only consists of a boulevard with some houses.
