I predict a LOT of DLC for this game

Me too, I always said to everyone that EA would eventually release this on Xbox, because the amount of money they could make from DLC :p

Anyway I pre-ordered at GAME, so ive got a lucky karma power coming my way lol

I'm curious to see how much will be offered as DLC, since it will not be so easy (I imagine) for anyone to make new stuff (like with the PC-version)... but it will no doubt be a nice cash-cow for EA...

On-topic... I don't think I will pre-order, I'm low on cash so really want to find the lowest possible price when I buy...

User created content is featured in The Sims 3:

Connect through Xbox Live and PSN to share your creations and download content from other players around the world.

That's pretty cool but I doubt that you'll have as much possibilites concerning creating new objects as you have in the PC version.

DLC plans:

IGN: Is there a plan to support the Sims 3 games for 360/PS3 with DLC expansions, perhaps on par with what is released on PC?

Sam Player: We'll be going into further detail on the online offerings for The Sims 3 console players in the months to come.

I think a lot of DLC will be released for The Sims 3 on console. They could release everything from the Sims Store (http://store.thesims3.com/) and all the other retail Expansion Packs.

These should be fun to use! How much do you think DLC's will cost? I'm thinking 5-120MS points depending on what is it and if it is in a bundle or not

Gar! Why is there no retailer for the UK which supplies all 3 bonuses. Guess i'll get it from GAME just for their reward points.

I hope the DLC for The Sims 3 won't be too expensive, but when you look at the SimsStore (http://store.thesims3.com/) you'll see that everything is priced very high. "Barnacle Bay (http://store.thesims3.com/barnacleBay.html?Intcmp=BarnacleBayLaunchBanners_I nternal_StoreSmall_BBLaunch)" (new neighbourhood) would be 1200 http://marketplace.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/MSpoints_12_12.png and a "Glitter and Glam Bedroom (http://store.thesims3.com/setsProductDetails.html?categoryId=11488&scategoryId=12705&pcategoryId=12707&index=0&productId=OFB-SIM3:24062)" about 600 http://marketplace.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/MSpoints_12_12.png. And if these little DLC packs are that expensive what about the retail add-ons like Sims 3 Late Night, World Adventures, Ambitions, etc.? Will they cost 1600 http://marketplace.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/MSpoints_12_12.png - 2400 http://marketplace.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/MSpoints_12_12.png - 3200 http://marketplace.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/MSpoints_12_12.png when released for 360 as DLC?!

i pre-ordered mine through Gamestop so i will be getting the whole bundle...i absolutely love the series! i cant wait to see some of the DLC they come up with but im with u all when it comes down to "how much is it gonna cost?" but regardless im sure ill end up spending whatever it costs just to keep everything fresh

Agreed, I am also a Sims fanatic. I have every Sims game from the first one to the bundle with all 8 additions. I also have Sims 1 & 2 for PS2. I had Sims 3 for PC but it always f**ked it up, so I had to give it away. This game will be awesome :)

The Sims 3 is out on October 26th in North America and October 29th in Europe.

I'm disappointed in the whole sims 3 for the console. I'll be calling EA to find out why brand new codes don't work and why they say if they don't, just buy a new one. Like the game isn't already expensive with tax and shipping... pre-order cost... $71.44.

Yes it does but post the link nevertheless, I need the link in order to find the marketplace picture. I'd like to list every DLC like this one:

(http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Ultra-Lucky-Exotic-Pack/5bd2cc95-dc56-411c-b53a-8b58d67894fd)Ultra Lucky Exotic Pack (http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Ultra-Lucky-Exotic-Pack/5bd2cc95-dc56-411c-b53a-8b58d67894fd)

Unlock the "Get Lucky" Karma Power, the Ultra Lounge Living Set, Ultra Lounge Outdoor Set and Exotic Cars. Use the "Get Lucky" Karma Power to grant your Sims the power of luck and ensure that all their endeavors end in success.

So if you could post the marketplace description (can only be seen on your consoles purchase history) too you'd make me really happy :)
