    No way i'm paying for the CE!
    I might pre order again, but if I do that I will pre order the standard...

    I don't blame you for cancelling :(

    Anyone know what the bonus content is? Me either maybe they should have been focusing on toddlers rather than a laser light show? Yes my order was already cancelled before I found out this devastating blow to the franchise... *deflated sigh*

    I cancelled my pre-order. I just can't pay full price for a stripped down game, sorry.

    No need to apologise, what you say makes sense. it should be EA who are apologising. :(

    I didn't preorder to begin with, lol. I just hope this mess is dealt with. For God's sake, I really can't believe toddlers have been removed! I hope they're released in a patch. This is too devastating. I don't know if I will preorder. I am definitely on the fence now. I'm not saying I won't buy it (90% sure I will), but I really have no idea if I'm preordering. I was so excited, too! Every time I get my hopes up, they just fall right back down.

    Didn't pre-order and now I'm thinking about not buying at all.

    I'm tired of the stripping down.

    I didn't preorder because I have been ****** with what I have heard so far since the beginning. Now no toddlers is the last straw.

    I actually play the game. I build as well, but I mostly play. I loved making families and seeing them grow. Now it will be a bassinet to a child like sims 1?? No thanks. No pools? No random deaths? No CasT? Not even a color wheel...good luck matching anything. I hated that about sims 2.

    What scares me the most is they are willing to sacrifice something huge like pools and toddlers. So what else are they willing to sacrifice? How many game breaking bugs are there that they are willing to just over look? What else is missing that we don't even know about.

    I will be watching Sims 4, and later on if the expansion packs show they add features back in, then maybe I will buy it. Right now it isn't even worth pirating.

    I didn't preorder anyways because there was never clear info about it coming out on mac (and now it sounds like it won't be a version for mac for a while), but if I did i would probably cancel it. It seems like everyday something that was confirmed gets taken out, or something basic, like pools and toddlers, isn't even included. I'm sure that I will end up buying it whenever a mac version comes out and I see players' reactions, but right now it doesn't look as much fun as I had hoped.

    I haven't yet made my pre-order. I had already decided NOT to pay some extra $10.00 for items I will likely not use. A laser light show? So not excited about this :!: ) So not worth the extra cash as far as I'm concerned. I'll buy the standard game, once I've got the entire $60.00. I like to have my pre-order prepaid. I'm very curious about the new intuitive CAS and the build mode.

    I'm very sorry to hear about the toddler stage being nixed for now. But the way it's stated, it sounds like it just won't be in the base game. No doubt, when they've had the time to finish the animations, we'll get a patch. At least that's my hope. If the game proves less than what Sims3 is (will all of its flaws, I still found it fun, but lacking) I will NOT purchase EPs or SPs for Sims4.

    I completely agree. I cancelled my pre order today. I was coming to the forums, hoping to find some news to make me excited for the Sims 4, however, this has just finally sealed the deal. I will not be buying the Sims 4. I will not and cannot give any more of my money to EA. It's so upsetting that they have taken a game I absolutely love and turned it into something I don't even want.

    I cancelled my pre-order today. I'll consider buying the game when it's $5 and had a few EPs that add the functionality that it is supposed to have. But I am not paying more than $5 for the base game. So if I have to wait the full 5 years, that's what I will do. I guess I can put my budget back towards the sims 3 store.

    I cancelled my pre order. I was so hopeful after E3 but now, nope. I'm not going to spend $80 on a "Life Simulation" game that is missing what I think is a fundamental stage. I don't mind getting pools in an EP but waiting for toddlers? Nope. If they had to skip a stage, it should have been Young Adults. It worked fine to add it with University in Sims 2.

    I thought EA would have learned their lesson after SimCity. But it's clear they didn't. They didn't listen to their customers. And now it seems like they think we'll ignore it if they keep focusing on all the shiny pretty words, "Look at the range of emotions!" "Our sims can travel between worlds now!" It's going to come back to bite them on the rear like it did with SimCity.

    Now I know how the fans of the Sim City franchise truly felt when EA wrecked their game. :thumbdown:

    I had been waiting trying to figure out which pre-order and from where I wanted to do. I will not be buying the game at all now. Toddlers are my favorite part of sims. Families is what I play and toddlers are the best part. I would be bored out of my mind just playing careers and parties and no child-raising.

    I have a feeling toddlers will be part of an EP. I will wait and buy the Sims 4 plus Family Life (or whatever EP it is that adds toddlers) and get what should have been in the base game to begin with.

    I hate to be so negative. There's a lot of giving up I can live with (no create a style, no open neighborhood), but giving up the entire way I play the game? It's like going back to sims 1.

    I didn't preorder and won't since I like to see real people play a game on YouTube before I make a final decision so that you get an unbiased view of the game. Even the reeeally strange choice of no toddlers doesn't mean a lot for me until I see what there actually IS, but I'm sad they haven't shown more by now.

    So far, I've taken note that there are emotions, world travelling and a spaceship. I don't know what else is new. I was happy about the woohoo skill as it was different but then they took that out too.

    They've been advertising CAS and build mode but there's really nothing DIFFERENT there, just an updated way of making a sim or building, which I would expect with each new sims game anyway.

    I was debating on pre-ordering, but I think I'll wait for some let's plays to pop up on YouTube. I think I'll still get it because I like a lot of what I've seen, but I'll wait for a sale.

    Despite all of my many misgivings about this game, I was going to be open-minded and give it a chance. Now I come home from work to discover that EA has decided to cut toddlers. Really? Toddlers are out?!

    I'm out, too.

    And the thing that really irks me is the implication that there very likely will be toddlers at some point in the future. Well, let's hope I give a flying fig about this game at that point in the future. If you think you can kidnap my toddlers now to get me to pay a ransom for them later, EA, you can think again.

    Me and my brats are sticking to TS3 for the time being. Say "Bye-Bye" kids! :P

    I'm planning to reinstall Sims 2 and forget about this game they call "Sims 4" EA will not get one more penny from me until they put toddlers in the game :evil:

    I'm never spending that much money on a game that doesn't even meet the base game of the TS3 and TS2. I'm going to wait and watch some Let's Plays after the game is released and maybe I'll buy it when it ends up in the 10$ box at Target.

    I won't be buying it.

    I was this close to pre-ordering. I tried my best to be positive.

    But I see no need to pay for a game that can't live up to neither TS2 or TS3.



    And also the lack of honesty of hinding this for as long as they could.

    I'm glad you are back to the dark side. We didn't agree on hating TS3 (I love it). But we can hate TS4 together now!

    No toddlers? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?

    Seriously, I feel so defeated.

    Don't we all.

    I wanted to like it. But they took it all out. Even my last hope.
