Sims 4 Preview Released
Electronic Arts recently released a 20 minute video showcasing the upcoming Sims 4, scheduled to be released on September 2nd. And based on the video, it appears that EA is planning to roll out a system similar to the Battlefield Premium service, which allows gamers to access new content early for a fee.
Joining Sims 4 Premium will allow users to obtain new packs early, along with exclusive items. The first offer, displayed in the 20-minute preview video, features extensions for a costume party, camping and New Year. EA hasn’t provided any further information on this new service, nor explained how much content will be exclusive to premium members. For long-time Sims players, this change could be frustrating: an excessive amount of expansion packs and DLCs proves expensive and annoying for avid participants in a game.
Disney Infinity Adding New Play Set

When playing in Toy Box mode, you’ll have access to new pieces, including Space Armor, a Marvel Team-Up that allows you to fight with Yondu, a Groot’s Roots theme, an add-on that lets you change the Toy Box’s sky, and the ability to transform the Toy Box into Star-Lord’s base. Along with the new figurines, Disney is also releasing the new structured Toy Box Game Attack on Asgard, where Loki lets an army of Frost Giants into Odin’s Palace.
Disney will also be releasing Stitch, Tinkerbell, Maleficent and Merida with Disney Infinity 2.0 this fall.

IMVU recently released a new feature dubbed the Avatar Card Enhancement. Only available to members who have been active for the last year and logged in within the last week, it allows you to change the background of your profile cards as well as note how long you’ve been playing/participating in IMVU. Wallpaper colors are based on how many years you’ve been involved: 4-year-old active accounts have a different background than 1-year-old active accounts, and it changes between your website profile and your client profile.
Of course, you don’t have to participate: if you’d prefer not to have your length-of-time-playing displayed, you can go to Account Settings and turn off “display tenure” or the colored wallpaper for your Avatar.

You can also carry over content you’ve already purchased on older versions of Dance Central.
