You're better with the disc indeed! Oh and technically I'm getting it, though my fiancé is the one who bought it... I'll have the Collector's Edition.
I'm very excited about the game and can't wait to see the kind of ideas they've come up with... Of course I read about much of the features but there are things I have yet to discover.
Also there's so many potential ideas for expansions... Imagine not only a town but other countries? That could be awesome for a vacation type expansion.
Anyway, the game sounds really nice and I'm pretty sure it'll be better than Sims 2. ^__^
