Sims 4 Won't Work on Vista??? The demo works fine.

★★★★ Novice

I'm confused because I just learned from PC gamer that you require Windows 7 or 8 to play Sims 4. Is this true? If so, there goes 14 years of buying and playing Sims games down the drain because I can't afford to upgrade my computer, nor do I want to lose all of the stuff I have on it.

It's included in the minimum specs. I don't work for EA so I'm not going to give you any guarantees.

 

EA does have the great game guarantee though. If it doesn't work, you can give it back within 24 hours. You just need to buy it through Origin.

 

I also can't see why the demo should work on Vista but not the game.

You can play on Vista if you have Service Pack 2 but 7 or 8 are recommended. 

 

Should still run on Vista.

Thanks for replying... but the word "shoud" is not worth $80.00!!! Is there any way to find out for certain if it "WILL"?

I don't see why either... I have to buy mine from Walmart because that's where I have gift cards too. Hopefully their return policy will be lenient. Thanks for the information.

Here's the official info: http://www.thesims.com/faq#what-are-the-PC-minimum-system-requirements

 

You can see vista is listed.
