Pay to play,
This review is from: The Sims 4 Create a Sim Demo [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
EA literally takes things out of each of these games to make more pay to play content in the next revision. The series was once fun, but has now become a joke that can cost hundreds of dollars for the content you want that should ask come standard in a completed game.

The content creator decides what they want to sell you. You may agree or disagree with it but the idea of what "should" come with something smacks of entitlement. If you don't want it do not buy it. It would be like arguing about how a character in a book "should" have progressed. Who are you to decide that? So long as they do not lie to you on the box and claim that you are getting things you are not... I see no problem. Educate yourself about what you are getting for your money and if you do not like it, skip the purchase. Pretty easy.

This has nothing to do with the product at hand. If you're frustrated with EA, then go complain about it in the millions of places available for it.

Are you a time traveler?

This is only a sample of the Sims 4, so of course they want you to buy the full version.

He's talking about the full version. Many features have been removed from the game to later be sold as DLC. The Sims 4 will be a step back from The Sims 3. They were completely removed for no reason other than greed. I don't think it's entitlement to expect the game to have at least the same stuff as before.

That example was incredibly stupid, I hope you know that. A characters path in a book is a creative choice, removing features that were in the previous game is just greedy. If you want to pay $200 in DLC than go for it but it just encourages EA to keep doing it. EA is entitled because they think everyone should be as stupid as you.

well for starters its a new game not the sims 3.
Sims 4 isn't sims 3 so some features may be added or removed (Mostly removed since sims 4 is new)
Also, you don't have to spend $200 in the dlc you can either wait untill the prices come down or not buy whatsoever
I think it is rather smart for EA to sell out the expansions because people will buy regardless and it increases purchases of the sims 4 for a longer time. Think of how many people bought the sims 3 just to try out one of their expansion packs
Can it be viewed as greedy? SURE I AGREE!
But a business is going to do what they can to make money and if a formula works they are going to use it until they can't.......

Luv those crazy Sims says:
It is unclear what your comment has to do with the CAS demo. Did you use it at all? Considering you did not comment on any of the features of this product, but rather commented on an unreleased future product you did not even play this demo. Your comment is completely unrelated and irrelevant to the product at hand.

When you say things were removed, are you comparing Sims 4 to the original box of Sims 3, or Sims 3 after all the expansion packs? Not to mention, it's not like they can just port things from Sims 3 to 4 as is. New games mean all new code.
