It always blows my mind how overpriced EA keeps this franchise. Honestly Sims expansions feel like you're playing $40 (new) for maybe just a little bit more than what you get for $10 DLC in other games, they add far less to the game than say a MMO expansion adds for the same $40 price. But the real annoying part is that EA keeps their prices so high YEARS and YEARS after release, $30 normal price for expansion packs that are 2-4 years old at this point, are you kidding? And then when they finally go on sale they only go down to $10-$20 at best usually... I can find pretty much any full retail game that is that many years old at better sale prices than these expansions. It's pretty unusual to find even a triple AAA full $60 title that is still sitting at $30 for PC download 3 years after it's release forget about a 3 year old expansion, yet EA does this with every Sims expansion. Meh.
I guess they are just used to milking the diehard sims fans for all their worth for so many years. I mean if people are willing to actually pay $10-20 for a few clothing items in their sims store constantly, I guess these expansion prices seem like a steal to them lol. Holding out for one day hoping they'll be reasonable and make all the expansion packs, maybe besides the newest one, less than $10, so it's not completely ridiculous to buy all the expansions at once for a game that is so many years old. Maybe if they ever get bored of milking Sims 3 and finally announce Sims 4, the prices on these expansions will finally drop.
