Completed the game on an old tag but it is on my shopping list to buy (LuckyConquerer2's Blog). Thanks Bulgy.

I remember borrowing the game and I debated if I should bother with the online pass. Good thing I looked before buying because yep this game doesn't have any achievements affected by it.

For once EA did something smart.

Now if they could just add the Exchange to Sims 4. What the hell are they waiting for?!

I'm surprised it lasted this long.

I thought the Exchange servers were already down, haven't been able to connect to them for awhile!

With Saints Row becoming Backwards Compatible, The Sims 3 is my top title I want for BC. I doubt it'll ever happen though because it's EA and Sims 4 is out for Xbox One. I would buy that for my Sims fix, but it's EA and they're not getting any more of my money, unless I find it in the absolute depths of a bargain bin.

Thank goodness no achievements will be ruined.
I have yet to start this, but I'm happy it can be completed.

If only more developers did offline only or multiple requirements for achievements... =/

I wish the Sims 3 games were backwards compatible. They're far more enjoyable and less broken than Sims 4 on XB1.

I have never played Sims 4 on PC. I was a big fan of The Sims 1. Actually first game I involved with modding. Anyway I've pre ordered sims 4 and it didnt seem that much broken on xbox. Only problem I had: character creation was very difficult, took me 30 minutes to figure it out. Other problem was saving issues. But far as I know they fixed that.

Why would it being EA make any difference to it not becoming BC? I would think that might help its chances, as it could pad their vault for EA Access and potentially gain Sims 4 some interest as a result.

How many other companies are you trying to hold your money back from? All the big publishers aren't really that much different.
