The Sims 3 digital download

Is there anyway that I could get a digital copy for The Sims 3? I have the physical copy along with some expansions, but the disc drive on my Mac won't accept them anymore. It just spits them back out. I know it's not the discs though because it does this with any type of disc.

If you want to change your CD key to a digital key, you need to contact the EA Help Center. A digital key will move the game to Origin. The problem with this is there is no support for Origin on Mac.

You might be able to download from gametree but as mentioned above you need to contact Customer Support for this.


They do have plans to bring Origin to Macs so that will be a solution then.

Good Luck and Happy Simming
