- No, you do NOT need earlier versions of the sims to play sims 3. Also, if your laptop supports all the specifications (On the back of the sims 3 box) then you can play it. I just installed it on my computer yesterday and Im not sure if your laptop will be able to allot for that much memory. It takes exactly 5,600 MB of space on your computer. Also make sure you have atleast a gig of extra space for saving houses and families. Also you need to have a video card that supports these kinds of graphics. It must have128MB or higher and 2.0 pixelation. It is compatible with Windows Vista.by mle19921/15/2013Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- No, unlike the line of Sims Expansion Packs, The Sims 3 is a standalone game. which means that you do not need any prior installation of the sims to play this game. Please refer to the system requirements and compare them to your Laptop's specifications. As for windows vista, you should have no problem using the Sims 3 on vista, however like i mentioned, it is very important that you compare your system with the System requirements.by vanx6/5/2009Was this answer helpful?

- No, Sims 3 is a different game entirely. So you won't need any of the other Sims games to play it. My friend plays her Sims game on her laptop that runs on Vista, so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to =)by Confuzled116/5/2009Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- Sims 1 & 2 are not required to play, depends on whether your laptop meets the hardware requirements set forth on the box, and The Sims 3 will run on Windows Vista.by Pureiggy6/4/2009Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- I believe that you can download a copy from certain online retailers, and that would the only way you can play it without a DVD player. The only other way is to buy a internal or external DVD player...by MusicIsLife031412/6/2009Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- If the game comes on a DVD (which the sims 3 does), you need a DVD drive in order to install it. However, one workaround of this is if you have a fast internet connection and meet all the System Requirements for The Sims 3, then you can purchase it direct from EA games via Digital Download. The perks to this are: You don't have to leave your house, you don't need a dvd drive. However the Cons are: You don't have a disc which means you need to back up your download somehow whether it be saving your proof of purchase, purchase key, etc. So depends on the type of person you are.by vanx6/5/2009Was this answer helpful?

- It runs on the CD-rom. If you don't have one of those either, you can download the game straight from The Sims 3 website (after paying the $49.95)by Confuzled116/5/2009Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- They may have a CD-ROM version out. Most manufacurers design both a DVD and CD-ROM version of their games for people who may not have the appropriate drive. You will just have to look around to see.by Pureiggy6/4/2009Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
