Hey guys, a heads up.  EA is currently advertising this game as FREE!  So all you need to do is download it.  Happy "Simming"!

the link on bargin lover takes me to this site:
http://eastore.ea.com/store/eaapac/en_NZ/DisplayHomePage/ThemeID.850400/ccRef.en_AU

Maybe it is because i am not logged in to the ea site?

Could it be in Aus only? Hmmm... I went into ea.co.nz and to the store link. Maybe it defaulted to the Aussie site as I'm in Aussie at the moment?

hmm, when i go to the store it tells you what country you are in the top right hand corner, maybe you could check if it defaulted to aussie?

strange though as i also went to the aussie store and a pop up lets me know i am browsing from the wrong country so i would have thought this would have happened to you going to the nz site?

I think the store is defaulted to Aus for everyone? Anyway, once you are there click on Store. Then click on Sims.

I didn't have to login to see the free game.

If you use a script blocker, it will work. But, as soon as you add to cart, you need to unblock ea.com. Which will then direct you back to the NZ site.

Would changing the country setting on your PC work?
