It looks like pirates have crashed EA's party once again by spreading a leaked version of The Sims 3 on many torrent sites. Without linking to any of these sites, users are stating that the leaked game "plays just fine." The leaked version apparently contains little to none of the DRM restrictions or online activation requirements that got gamers in a fuss over Spore, and as such is currently spreading like wildfire. EA has yet to comment on the leak. Look for The Sims 3 on June 3rd.
