I read somewhere that The Sims 3 has been delayed, again, but just an extra three days, to June 5th. I can't remember where, but it might have just been a modding site for TS2, so it's probably not true.
But damn, those Sims 3 characters are UGLY. They look like Play-Doh figures. Sad how much better the Sims 2 figures look.
