Electronic Arts has released a good bit of information about the online aspects of The Sims 3, which is due for release in early June. The game will have downloadable content available on launch day that includes a second, separate town called Riverview. They'll also be revamping the game's website to allow the sharing of content and integration with social media. In addition, EA mentioned that the game will make use of micro-transactions, which players can use to buy things like furniture, clothing, and other items.

    While you could find free content, many sites made you pay. As long as people keep the possibility of creating their own content for this game, the only thing new will be that EA will take some of the money in a market which already existed. Of course, they might kill a few paying sites by doing this as they can create all the unfair advatages they want (direct link to the store from inside the game, in-game ads...).

Old programmers never die, they just branch to a new address.
