The regular graphics on the other hand are less than average and i think in this respect it will be a big boost. However, i think that i, and many others will not buy this game until it has become established i.e. expansions and mods mainly.

For those who are taking the piss out of the required graphics, you guys will probobaly have difficulty running this game with a 8800 and ur core 2 duo's. For those who have actually played the sims games with more than 1 or 2 sims .i.e like 6+, then you actually realise that its one of the hardest games to run as it will most likely be very CPU intensive. I have a suspicion it will be optimised for multi core, especially quad core. Just think you could have like 20+ sims on a single screen!!!! Thats a hard game to run
The Sims 2 is not hard to run, it's horribly coded for modern video cards and multi core CPUs. Runs nearly the same on my rig as it does on the rig my sig plays it on. And it has a 3.0GHz P4 and a 6800. As someone said earlier, the logic behind the sims is so simple that it's not CPU intensive at all.

Hehe. The entire Sims franchise has become nothing but a gimmic. Everytime i hear about a new Sims expansion it kinda reminds me of those incredibly annoying commercials advertising mobile phone ringtones or dirty chatlines, which are so poorly made it makes you wonder who the heck buys this crap.

It's terribly sad.

I wonder if Legendary will play Sims 3 to reinact his own life as the new Messiah?
Lol.

Nice to see a member of these forums in touch with their sense of humor...
