SnootySims found a 2 month old interview with Sims producer Ben Bell in which has yet to be translated. Snooty took the time to do so and has published the interview on their site. The interview addresses DRM, neighborhoods and aliens:
There’s a lot of commotion about DRM. Will that be present in the game?
We haven’t decided that yet, but we sure look at how other games managed this and all the problems people have with it. We want to come up with something that is userfriendly for all players. In the near future, we will announce what we will do, but we will sure listen to everybody.
