The Sims 3

From time to time, EA retires online services to focus on newer products. Occasionally, retirement of features will come to an older Maxis title.

In the past, retired services include The Sims Online/EA-Land, The Sims 2 website, Darkspore, The Sims On Stage (remember that?) and now, The Sims 3 on Console.

As of July 2nd 2018, all online services for The Sims 3 will be unavailable. This shouldn’t impact anything drastic, as the game is single player, however items such as the store and exchange will be unavailable.

Affected Services:

  • The Sims 3 Online Services for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The Sims 3 on Console was released in 2010, so almost eight years of service is pretty good going, especially when you consider online services for The Sims 3 Pets on console were retired a long time ago.
