EA are ceasing support of The Sims 2, but to make up for it they are giving anyone who owns any version of The Sims 2 a new "complete collection" style offering called The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection for free. I had to contact EA Support to get it on my origin account, since all my TS2 games were retail copies - not digital - so I had to send them pictures of the games etc to verify that I definitely owned them. As far as I know this is also the only version of The Sims 2 that works correctly on Windows 8.1, so it's really worth looking into if you enjoyed playing TS2, don't have all expansions and stuff packs or don't want to bring out all your TS2 disks to reinstall in future. It's working fine for me on Windows 8.1, but there are a few graphical issues that are probably caused by my 870M being too new... If you have any digital copies of TS2, it should be in your account already. Just thought you guys might like to know about this. Edit by Afr0: They are giving TS2 for free to anyone. Just pop the code I-LOVE-THE-SIMS into origin. Would it be too much to ask them to release the source as well?
