Finding TS1?

Where can I buy a copy of TS1, preferably complete collection? I've found it on Amazon, but the Complete Collection was $98! TS2 also, please!

    TS2 you can try asking a rep to give you it on Origin. I've still got all my ts1 discs so I've never had to look for new ones but I think Amazon or Ebay are your best bets. And just my opinion, but I think for nostalgia alone $98 is absolutely worth it.

    In France it's more expensive, on Fnac, it's 105€ (new) ( $120 ) or 195€ ( $223 )

    I got a complete series on Marktplaats, a Dutch second hand website, for 10 euros.

    You don't really have to worry about second hand The Sims games, you can't register them anymore anyway but it will give you a lot of fun if you get it to work hehe!

    I bought a whole bundle of TS1 and TS2 discs on eBay just recently for about $30. You just have to keep checking regularly.

    In France they exaggerate with the price of the games , I know sometimes I am jealous I can't buy anywhere because the prices are less expensive, they laugh at us.
    Yes I complain in plenty of other countries the situation is worst.

    Good luck to fin the sims 1 if you want it less expensive, maybe in second-hand gaming shop. @gummybear0724 that's how I got mine, at that time we could sell our games and making other people to use.

    The only one I know of is game stop, but I'll definitely check! I did hear it was becoming a mobile game so maybe I'll check that out too.

    You could always try thrift stores/used book or game stores m. I got the base game and two of the EPs at Half Price books for like $3 each. Unfortunately I can't get it to run on my Win 7 computer so I haven't actually been able to play them. :-(

    So will I have problems running it? I have Windows 10..

    I had no issues installing, but for playing you'll need some adjustments...

    I did one adjustment I'm officially probably not allowed to talk about here, but you can find the easy explanation when you search for 'how to get sims 1 to work' on YouTube. I also have to fire the game up as admin otherwise it keeps hanging in the loading screens from the EP's.

    I got my copy on eBay for around £10 with 4-5 expansions or so. People on eBay seem to sell copies for cheap.

    1. There is no issue during the installation but the game won't launch because SecuROM is broken.

    2. If the game is run in window mode, there will be a black square over the window, Ctrl Alt Del and cancel will remove it.
