Sims 3 Trailer

Some impressive looking trailer from EA's upcoming Sims 3 for iPhone:

Star Defense

Challenge mode demonstrated in Ngmoco's Star Defense. Coming in May.

The Deep Pinball

From the developers of Wild West Pinball comes a brand new pinball game The Deep Pinball. Wild West Pinball has been praised as having some of the best pinball physics in the App Store, so this new title shouldn't disappoint.

Chests with treasures, sunk ships, underwater hunting, missions and many other reviving active interest things will meet the gamer throughout the whole acting. Deep Docyard is always at your disposal, where you can fill up your tanks, do repair-works if needed…

The Deep Pinball will become available in June.

    Allright! 2nd of June for the Sims 3! It looks really amazing, from what I can tell (even if it only contained seconds of actual Ipod footage) I hope the Sandbox mode will be included, becouse that will give the Sims tons of replay value. Also, I like that I have to mess up my eyes on an Ipod screen, rather then mess up my arm by clicking endlessly in the sim world.

    WOW! The shark baby seems not to be amused by our diving for treasures. But I am quite sure: "The Deep" will be one of the best pinball games for iDevices (and I have them all). Can't await June.

    Interesting that Sims 3 for iPhone and iPod Touch comes out on June 2nd. I thought for sure that it would come out after 3.0 is released. Didn't they show off the Sims 3 at that 3.0 event a couple months back using new API's such as allowing songs stored in your iPod to be played inside the game on a juke box? In addition, wasn't that juke box purchased using the new localized in-app app store? Although, I guess if its the case that you have to buy this feature, then they could just release a new version a few weeks later with 3.0 that has the store.

    This means one of two things: 3.0 is coming out early (not likely at all) or 3.0 will be coming out sometime much later like July or August, which might not jive with EA's product release deadlines so they are shipping it feature incomplete in a move to get it out the door within their internal time frame. I suppose its also possible that EA doesn't know anything, but out of all the companies that Apple would trust with a secret and give inside information to, EA seems the most likely one to know Apple's internal release schedules. Especially with the demos they did at the 2.0 and 3.0 events.

    I see now why the dev chose to include only one board with Wild West Pinball. Would be nice to have both in the same app, along with any future ones, but I see that they probably needed to get some revenue from Wild West before continuing all the hard work to make The Deep. looking forward to it: )

    EA probably wants to release The Sims 3 for all platforms at the same time. They can release an updated version with 3.0 features when the 3.0 is out.

    The Sims games for mobiles haven't been "full" experiences previously, I wonder if this version will be better. Hopefully the house building feature is included, but I think the houses are ready and you can only decorate and furnish them.

    @Alichan76
    I agree.

    I think Wild West should have been called something much more generic, like 'OOO Pinball'. Adding this table would have spawned such good will among previous customers that I imagine a huge new batch of downloaders would snatch it up after reading all the posts about... "OMG, now this is a definite MUST BUY!! Add a new table maybe every 2-3 months to build longevity and rise to the top.

    As it stands, it'll take up an icon slot until something better comes out and then be deleted to save on space.

    it's better for ea to deliver sims 3 on all iphones (not only with 3.0). They want to sell as much units as possible and lots of iphone owners won't update immediatley to 3.0. Sure they will bring in the 3.0-features with an update.

    so it looks like you won't be able to build your sims house. That is sort of a deal breaker for me, because building and designing a house is my favorite part of the game. : (

    I'd buy The Deep Pinball for the same price as the current one right away... if the table is actually different than the one of Wild West. From the look of it, only the colours aren't the same.

    I agree that The Deep's table is very similar to Wild West. It looks good but I'm disappointed. I'll prob delete WWP when this comes out.

    I hope the dev comes up with more originality and a more interesting table next time out with more ramps and loops. These tables are a little too simple for me.

    I can't wait for The Deep.

    The thing I like about Gameproms pinball tables is that they do not incorporate all of the elements of your traditional pinball table, light up 50 lights to get a million points, multiball, etc.. Rather, its more of a simple interpretation of a pinball table and feels like a pocket toy pinball table in your pocket. The slower pace makes it very easily accessable.

    At any rate, I really enjoy all these aspects of WWP, and am eagerly anticipating the deep and the jungle themed pinball.

    I have to say I'm a little amazed that you're not providing a link to Pocket Gamer or even mentions them even though that trailer has their name on it and seems to be something exclusive to them...

    Now, this is what I was expecting Wild West to be the prelude to. If this plays as good as it looks The Deep will be an instant purchase for me. (Well, here's hoping, anyway.) :)

    Jeg må sige jeg er lidt forundret over, at du ikke er at give et link til Pocket Gamer eller endda nævner dem, selv om der trailer har deres navn på det og synes at være noget eksklusivt for dem. Vi glade for at se dig på apotek dk.
