I tryed to buy the University Life expansion pack, fist from origin, but it says "You already have all the games in this order." Then, I tryed to go in The Sims 3 site, and see if it would work, but no. It's saying that happened a 404 error, so I can't even TRY buying on the site. That's sad, since I loved the pack. Well, I hope you guys from EA can help me out. ;=;
@emilly897 The Sims 3 store doesn't handle cash transactions anymore; all that is now left to Origin. There are a number of people who have been unable to buy University Life lately (as well as a couple of other packs), and there is no solution as of yet. But there are a few workarounds you can try:
Until EA offers a proper fix, there's not much else you can do, unfortunately. I'll post back if and when there's any news.
P.S. The responders here are mostly your fellow players, not EA employees.
@emilly897 Can you buy a code from Amazon? (Use Direct, which is Amazon itself, rather than Marketplace, which includes third-party sellers who may provide bad codes.)
The other option is to buy through Steam/Valve, but you'd have to buy a copy of the base game as well. Still, if you wait for the next sale, which may come at the end of the year, prices will be significantly cheaper. During the last sale, the base game and its packs went from $20 U.S. to $5 each.
