What's New

The Sims 3: Showtime Expansion pack adds several new types of skills to the core game. Showtime allows your sims to become singers, performers, magicians, as well as DJs. The Sims 3 Showtime also expands on the Facebook integration found in The Sims 3 Generations by adding the ability to post on your friend's Facebook walls from within the game itself.

Another new notable feature to The Sims 3: Showtime expansion is the ability to bring a friends Sim into your Sim's town, and interact together.

Finally The Sims 3: Showtime introduces a new "Build Your Own Venue" feature allowing the player to build his or her own stage to perform on, in contrast to previous entries in the series where the player would perform on pre-built stages.

Limited Editions

There are actually two different "Limited Editions" of the Sims 3: Showtime. The main limited edition gives the player a few new stage parts and a bonus venue. This edition is only available for those who pre-order or pick up the game on or around launch. The second version is a special "Katy Perry Collector's Edition" which features a collectible poster as well as special Katy Perry themed clothing and stage objects. The Limited Edition retails for the same price as the normal game ($40 at launch). The Katy Perry Collector's Edition retails for $10 more ($50 at launch).

Achievements

With the release of The Sims 3: Showtime, achievements officially premiered in The Sims franchise (on PC). Shortly before, however, the base game The Sims 3 received an update that added over 90 achievements. Achievements related to previous expansion packs in the series will be added eventually.
