Don't get your hopes up yet... real or fake?

Personally I say fake... because
1) Photo looks suspect, especially the lighting, and the name of the
game is obscured
2) Nightlife is only supposed to be out in Brasil so far, and those do
not appear to be brazillian flora in the background...
3) Nor do I think it would be an english ad in a brazillian box
4) Nor did brazillians get nightlife ads the last time around... only
some countries and areas did

Still... there is the off chance it could be real.

It should be in Portuguese. Mind you I wouldn't but it pass some
idiot at EA not realizing that and just producing one massive batch in
English. The flyer does look very well done.

But then again the Nightlife flyer only mentioned vampires and there's
alot more to it then that. People want pets, so the line "It's time for
walkies" seems a good marketing hock to me to get people excited.

Yeah - that's a photoshop job I think. Look at the difference in the
lighting quality between the leaflet and the picture.

Best wishes

I don't think there will be just a pet EP. I do believe there will be a
farm related EP with pets plus other farm animals and gardening and
stuff like that. I do believe this. ;)

Yeah, it's beautiful craftsmanship, but Maxis also said in the last
chat that they would not make an EP solely with pets or pets as the
main theme. It was posted on the BBS forum by a guy named krazzer
saying "photo of me with the flyer in my box"

Hopefully Family Business is next, and after that... PETS! But I
suspect they've already planned others... and I'm dying to know what
it is. What does the game need that is not currently in it?

Outdoors EP? Farm? Pets? Magic? Vacation? Or the business/custom
creation everyone was so psyched about in one of the surveys?

What else is there? Age themed expansions? Maybe we'll get business
with 70's and 20's themes or something... Sim Mafia :-D

No, definite fake!

Never mind the Brazillian flora, just look at the picture itself.
Clearly superimposed, the lighting levels are off, the fingers around
the document are blurred (the result of retouching) and you can see the
"cut" marks along the top of the pamphlet.

I've seen better Kennedy Assassination forgeries.

It's not just a fake, it's a bad one. I could do better. In fact, I have.

Nah, I'm not believing this. If even *I* can tell the
pic's a fake...it's a fake ;)  Still, I've been known
to be wrong once or twice <g>

And his right hand is off. He holds the picture with his fingers but
it's behind his wrist.
