Ridiculous price for the Mac Download,
This review is from: Sims 3 Showtime plus Sims 3 [Mac Download] (Software Download)
I am a fan of Sims, but seriously who would pay $ 49.99 for this?!!! I mean, what is the reason behind such a great price difference in PC and MAC based games!!! More than double!!! I am tempted to try the game, but def. not going to buy it for this price! Sorry EA, sort this out!!!

I'm pretty sure its 50 bucks because its the Sims 3 base game AND the Showtime expansion.

Absolutely agree with you, but same PC deal was $20 cheaper... So still feels like a bit of a rip of. No?..

That, I did not know. Paying for the trouble of making it mac-compatible, maybe? Sucks but that may be what it is. Regardless, I paid for it and have been waiting more than two hours for my order to be processed after trying to buy it twice and getting my account flagged for security reasons twice and calling to get a hold lifted from my account.

So sorry you having all this troubles! Hate when that happens. Hope you will be able to enjoy the game very soon. Showtime is small but cute expansion. I have chosen different pass. Got sims 3 on sale for $9.99 & show time on sale for about $23. Both downloaded just fine & it was a cheaper way (under $35) to get legal copies.

I'm still want to buy the other expansions; where did you find those copies? If you don't mind my asking...

Basically I use amazone, type the name of expansion and look at all prices that come up. For example now sims3 mac download is 29.99. Three weeks or so ago it went on huge sale for 9.99 so I bought it. Same with show time and other expansions. Just check prices now and keep checking them from time to time. Once you see agood deal just go for it. Also check www.bestbuy.com . The showntime now goes for 19.99! & it's collectors edition too. Sims basic + pets also go for 19.99! So my advise just don't rush & wait for sales. They change everytime :)! Good luck
