Sims 3 fans better wait for the official release date and snatching up a copy of the latest in the Sims franchise.
While there hasn’t been specific confirmation of these files actually being a full version of the retail game yet, it does call into question the recent stance by EA to remove DRM from its PC games. The leak of a major title like The Sims 3 weeks before its release could possibly force the company’s hand to return to stricter measures to protect its property. We’ve contacted EA for comment and confirmation on the leak, but didn’t receive any word as of publication
