Just received word from the webmaster of Russian fansite Sims.miXei.RU about the upcoming so-called ‘Collector’s Edition’ of The Sims 3 Ambitions.  They contacted EA Russia to see if they could get more information and were given the following response:

It’s not a Collector’s Edition, it is a book about the developers and the characters of the Sims. It will be released in France, Italy, Spain, the UK and Germany only, and will be available in book stores. It will not be published in Russia.

So…no game then, just a 48 page book that comes with a poster, sketches and other misc. goodies?  I suppose it looks to be this way.  So far Germany and Spain will have this to release with Italy, France and UK soon to be mentioned.  No US release, so it looks like I’ll be ordering a copy from Ebay soon after the expansion’s launch (speaking of which, I did the same for The Sims 3 Create-A-Sim).
