And for the first time, The Sims 3 Showtime introduces social features, including Passport, an all-new feature that lets you send your Sims to a friend's game! There, your Sim can perform at your friend's venue in front of your friend's Sims! You will also be able to chat with friends and post messages and screenshots on your friends' walls.

  • Be Connected (Optional): Make new friends, connect and share your stories and experiences without ever leaving the game. Using the new individual in-game news feeds, messaging, and live updates, post your Sims’ successes, share gameplay techniques, create wishlists and gifts, search for new friends and share memories.

When I ordered the Mac download, it was only because i didn't want to wait to play the game. However, the download did not work at all. I tried installing it at least 5 times and each time, my sims would no longer play. Very frustrating. I ended up asking them to give me a refund which amazon did and I deleted it off my computer.

I have since ordered the DVD rom which works perfectly. And I think the game is pretty great. Although I wasn't interested in the social aspect of sharing everything, the new town is pretty nice and I love the singer career. I just wish they could have a town with both the city element of late night and the small town part that is usually included. Good game overall but do not buy the mac download.

There's not a lot to be said -- this provides a lot of new Sim stuff. It gives a facelift to your Sims game yet again, to give it enough variety for you to want to play it again. There seems to be a lot of overlap between these add-ons that don't quite fit together, like the music career, bands, and now the singers. Unfortunately, you can't really combine them all. Yet, it is still fun and that's just something that you learn to deal with.

I installed it and it worked right off. In fact, I would say that it was a bit more stable after installing this extension. I have all my software up to date, including all the Sims components and Mac OS. I would recommend you do the same and you shouldn't have any issues getting it to run.

After my daughter installed this for her Sims 3, Sims 3 kept crashing with unexpected exception and it was very frustrating. After about 5-8 such incidents, I suggested that she uninstall Showtime. Once she uninstalled Showtime, immediately everything in Sims 3 is back to normal without a single crash. I won't recommend it unless it is a Mac-only issue. Her system is a MacBook Pro with OSX 10.6 and 8GB of RAM.

Even with patches, the game constantly crashes and the game play just isn't worth it. I would post this on all the Mac expansions I bought. EA doesn't care about the issues ALL of the Mac users are experiencing. Will not buy another expansion pack.

Actually It didnt work in the beginning, it kept showing "the game process can not be started". I was trying to update the game, but it didnt work either. Then, at last I updated the software on my Macbook, the game is working now.

This new expansion has alot of new items and community lots...So excited to play it tomorrow :)

P.S: If the game didnt work in the beginning, try to update your Mac's software, it works for me.

Wow I really want a refund.... this messed up my computer it won't even work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice and have wasted too much time trying to make this work. EA Games and Sims need to figure out how to make a game that isn't completely glitchy. Don't waste your money on this.

I know my Sims games. I have everyone except World for the only reason that I haven't found the Mac download yet. The game itself is alright. It adds professions and fun furniture. Quality wise I was annoyed. When I first started playing it lagged and kept crashing. I figured this was due to all of my CC so I exited the game and deleted it all. Nope, didn't do anything. The game is constantly freezing and having to catch up. It could be the download or the game in general. I like Showtime and would buy it again, but not as a download.

We did not experience any problems, and we will certainly order future downloads as they become available. We purchased this for our Mac desktop running 10.6.
