Incorrect. First off you CAN get sims 3 and most/all of its add-on's through steam.
Example: http://store.steampowered.com/app/47890/
EA removed a few of their titles from steam, mostly because they weren't willing to let steam add the DLC to be available to be purchased through steam for some titles.
Valve basically said "look, you can sell stuff through your in game digital store, fine we don't care. But we want to ALSO be able to sell it through steam, so our users won't have to be bothered going through separate stores for each game if they don't want to"
EA basically replied "screw you, we are removing some of our games then"
Games that don't have in-game digital store exclusive only way to purchase things are mostly still on steam, such as sims.
There ARE a few other games that are origin only though. I think battlefield 3 and that star wars MMORPG are some of them. Those are origin exclusives mostly so EA can try and get marketshare for origin.
ok sorry about origin, as of last april where i stop playing ME3 it wasn't able to install in other drives other than c: i guess it changed.

about steam you can buy sims 3 from steam but you can't activate it if you brought your copy elsewhere, here is the link of the list of games you can activate on steam if brought your copy other than steam. https://support.steampowered.com/...-wusf-3601, but you can activate all your EA game though origin some if u can't activate just contact the costumer service they will add for you

and steam only recently allow you allowed you to install stuff elsewhere is just you can install steam and steam game in a separate drive. actually before if u install your steam in your other drive it will just install all the game in that folder and you can copy paste that folder anywhere u want it will work fine. so not much changed for steam but for origin is a different story, in April 2012 i installed origin in D and my ME3 install though origin still installed in C and when i copy it to other drive game won't work anymore as register screw up, but this time i guess i will give origin a try later when i find a game i want.

I don't know if it was him or I'm just dumb, but he told me to check my account and it was registered after all. He made me feel like I had messed up, but I'm not positive. I say check your profile for the Sims Community on the website and see for yourself. If it isn't there, do up a live chat. They will get into your account and check.

EDIT: Sorry, I edit too much...

If I had to guess, I'd say it registered the game for me automatically and was trying for absolutely no reason. But, it for whatever reason yours isn't on the website, still get live chat help. Hope it works out!
thanks heaps Smilie will check.
the origin system is really crap....

Are the deals only for the download packs?
Looks like yes the deals are only for downloads and most are only PC downloads.

because it is a EA game. no EA game can be activate on steam. you have to get origin and download from that and origin sucks big time because you can't choose where to install your game. it will only install all your game in the C drive
This is simply not true. You can choose where to install your games. They all need to be installed in the same directory, but you can choose that directory to be anywhere on your computer.

I don't know why Origin gets so much hate. It's like a leaner version of Steam. I like it.
--------------------------------

Does anyone know if Sims 3 (digital download), either on Steam or Origin uses the cloud to store saves? I plan on playing this game from multiple machines and want a synced save shared among them.

wow what a piece of junk game, apparently if you registered your product code through ORIGIN, it becomes INVALID to register in-game, meaning you have to contact origin customer support in order to get your online activation, bunch of rocket scientists at EA.

Damn really? I was hoping there was a easier way to get online registration done. Is there any reason to register game online?

Same here but I can't justify doing it with the obvious price change that occurred so quickly.

yeah especially when I only paid 7 bucks for the original game. I figured get seasons, and pets or generations to add to the gameplay but looks like I'll have to change it up. Seasons seems like it adds a lot.
