    That I believe is going to be the console version, Hopefully the PC version will be similar.
    I hope so.. I see a PC/MAC logo though at the end of the trailer next to the other consoles.. I’m really hoping for improved graphics on the pets..

  2. The animals probably look cartoonish as the EP is only in the very early stages of development and doing life like textures is something you leave to the very end of the process!


  3. Joe:

    The dog looks cartoonish.. Sims 2 pets looked real. Don’t tell me we’re doing this again EA ._.

    Complain complain complain. That’s all you guys ever do is complain!

    Complain?! We wouldn’t have to complain if EA would know what they’re doing and actually care about their fans! Don’t start to scold us! Without us, the fans, The Sims would be NOTHING!

    Yea you’re probably right that it’s in its early stages, but then they should not have made a trailer of it! Makes no sense to me, wouldn’t you want to show off the best aspects of a game and wait to make a trailer until it looks its best?!

  6. It’s hard not to notice that lately all R.C. has been doing is complaining about other people voicing their opinions.

    If he or she is so opposed to complaining, he or she might want to start by stopping the whining him or herself.

  7. If you pay close attention to the images and to the trailer, you’ll notice how the graphics quality is set to low. Besides this looks more like a prototype of “pets” on The Sims 3, feels like there’s more too it…

  8. Something tells me that the trailer was meant for internal viewing only. As in it wasn’t supposed to be shown outside EA at this point in time.

  9. Footage is from the console version hence the lower quality graphics. As for the cartoony animals, I actually kind of like it. They fit the environment really well, and their animations are stunning too. The artstyle works with the Sims in the game, even if I don’t actually like the artstyle of the Sims in this game lol

    I suspect that it is an internal concept trailer never meant to be seen by the public. Companies make these sort of things to test out ideas, practice techniques, or put forward ideas to the management.

    It was probably intended for one of the upcoming gaming conventions (too late for GDC, but PAX East, perhaps?) rather than for the general consumer.

  12. @uknotherner and @TickleOnTheTurn – Oh ok! You both make sense, I understand now! Didn’t know that gaming companies do that! Thanks for replying!

    And @lolifofof – I would actually think those expecting more and those who are disappointed are more of a fan than you! We have high expectations and we expect more because we have been with this game from the beginning! Don’t insult us without knowing how much of a fan we are and how long we have been with this game!!

  13. Even for somthing “Internal”, graphics set to low? No. Even my crap computer can run The Sims 3 on high. Check it

    1) “Barkely” not really in the scene
    2) From a 3D Perspective, Fluffies head is Inside the fish bowl.
    3) In park, Dog walks up to skunk, with intent to sniff, skunk reacts in real-time. The Sims does not handle this way, the Dog walks up and begins its action, with the skunk waiting and preparing for the action to begin.
    4) Dogs fighting over chew toy. They are doing so on top of the blanket, which based on how The Sims 3 is made, cannot be done, they would walk off of the blanket before doing this.
    5) Dog blows steam onto Screen.
    6) Robotic-like expression on girls face when on horse.
    7) Lastly, Consoles written at bottom of screen. Console ports wont even allow you to walk around outside.

    So what does all this mean? It’s possible this is an internal video just meant for maxis to get the “Ok” from EA, These videos are sometimes made like Pilots for TV Shows, the game creates a fake “what-if” video to get the funds needed to make the product.

    The other possibility, is that this video is utterly and completely Fake. if this video is NEW, and the game has yet to enter development, a release date by October isn’t going to happen. In fact the font that says “Coming in October” is only seen in one other place, the word “Unleashed”. so both words where typed in over The Sims 3 logo. again, could be a concept video, and to boost this idea, EA has gone out of their way to Ban this video every time it pops up on YouTube.

    However, it is just as possible that someone made this out of boredom, someone else found it, and went nuts.

    In case EA Decides to remove that video as well, here is a download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?4q6rbg6lefj72tr

    Good luck guys!

    Exactly. This looks like a leak. As for the complaints of looking “cartoonish” this looks like some early builds–which means detail will be left out until they are finalized because the more detailed, the slower the rendering which slows art creation. This looks like some advanced story boarding. There’s a reason companies don’t release this stuff…because there’s always some boob who thinks it’s the final look.

    EA is supposed to have a big announcement on March 31st. I’ll bet this is the announcment. Can’t wait for pets and the other animals!

  15. gosh all u guys do is whine about junk……its a trailer not really off someones real game xI its made off a comuter gramming thing that they use to make trailers and the front of the box xD
