    Is it the 20th anniversary again?
  • drake_mccartydrake_mccarty Posts: 5,791 Member
    Sims 4 was only $5.99 during the 20th anniversary sale, and less than a month later they run a sale where it’s $4.99. Desperate

    I think this is the "EA Publisher Sale," or at least, that's what Origin told me.

    I was expecting this one, the Publisher sale is an annual thing.

    There might be a different SP on sale tomorrow since they seem to be swapping weekly.

    I think stuff pack on sale will change. I normally start my game with Origin in offline mode, then I don't get the discount info on my start screen when game is loading. So, I started to go online to check ;)

    PS: Will GPs ever get cheaper than 25% of? I think they could give 50% at least for the older packs.

    Dude, just curious why all these sales...I mean.....can they not sell the game without them :P seems like it **And if your gonna ask, I got almost all packs expect the ones I refuse to buy, MFPS, M Stuff, and Tiny Living.**

    Well, it’s not Sims exclusive but it still counts as a sale for it... 🤷‍♀️

    @Simmerville GPs were 40% off last June, so it happens just nowhere near as much as EP sales.

    And the last few Thursdays the SP on a 50% off sale switched so we'll know tomorrow if that continues until they rotate through them all.

    It's the Publisher's Sale. THis has nothing to do with the Sims itself. They just happened to land in the same month.

    They do have a lot of sales though. More than I ever saw with the other games by a long shot. If you miss one, just wait a few weeks.
    I haven't bought anything full price yet except Tiny Living and that was because I caved while I was sick and bored a couple weeks ago, and I'd just gotten paid for a rather tedious transcription job. Everything else I've bought at 50% off.
    It wouldn't surprise me one bit to discover that they've only done as well as they have because of sales. This iteration is... very different as far as content portioning.

    This is what I mean, without it being for the Sims...they ALWAYS have a dang sale...don't deny it because they do...and I find that really fishy for some reason.
    I agree with the bolded part, they boost about the sales, but of course it's gonna be the best selling, you have a sale on it ALL the time and EVERYONE is grabbing it at that point....smh...

    If sales are where they make money I'm not sure why this is an issue... I'm glad they have a lot as it saves me money.

    As for stuff packs, they did it last year that they cycled through them all at this time of year so seems they are again. I don't need any but Tiny Living though and I'll save that til I can bundle it

    Tiny living is such a fun game changer though! Honestly I've been loving it. Pushing myself to build tiny, keeping the house small and the perks!!! oh my!

    But there's no recolored hot tub how could you think such a thing.
    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"

    Update: Bowling Night Stuff Pack is now 50% off.

    Excellent. These sales are way better to me than a "free hot-tub". Smart move.

    My hat's off to them.

    Laundry Day Stuff is 50% off now!
  • lisamwittlisamwitt Posts: 4,352 Member
    I didn't feel psyched enough about toddler stuff to buy it, and I already own Laundry Day. I'm hoping they'll continue on this path and eventually some others I don't own will be next.

    Thank You! I have been waiting for this one! Honestly I even bough bowling stuff the other day because it was 50% off. They know how to get me.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the toddler-stuff pack. It got me more interested in playing toddlers again. Instead rushing through it and aging them up quickly.

    HOW is laundry day stuff? I don't mind doing laundry IRL but I don't necessarily want to do it in the game. Will I HAVE to have them do laundry even if I don't give them a laundry machine?

    No, Just make sure you don't give them laundry hampers either.
