Sims 3 Delayed Until June

The highly-anticipated sequel The Sims 3 (website) has been delayed.  As recently as yesterday, they were announcing a February 20 release date.  Now it’s June 2.  And a look at their press release reveals the reason: They want more time to market it.  I’m thinking they didn’t get as many pre-orders as they anticipated. It’s called a recession.  Nobody is pre-ordering anything.

This is the same shit Warner Bros. pulled with Harry Potter 6.  Delaying a game, or movie, to market more may make sense to them, but it doesn’t do much for consumer confidence.  But the sad part is, I’ll still be waiting for my copy of The Sims 3 to show up on launch day.  However, I am going to boycott Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  The big movie studios get away with too much.  When they finally release the movie, I’m just going to read the book again.
