You know, I don't have this game, nor do I plan on purchasing it, but I do have one comment.  When so much of the strength of your brand lies in name recognition (Sims this Sims that), why would you want to put out a product in the same family with a different name?  Casual gamers browsing Best Buy aren't likely to even stop and look because (drumroll please) it's not  The Sims.   :?:

The name is: "The Urbz: Sims in the City"

It was this moment that took the movie from being a little ho-hum to “holy shit, did that shark just eat a plane!?”

Eh, maybe I'm just cranky today, but they should have just dropped the Urbs part and called it The Sims: Citylife or something.

Oh no, my l0s3r friend, it's Urbz with the ultra-hip, street-cred "z."
