    Now I never buy in-app purchases for a good reason.

    But I looked on the Sims Freeplay in-app prchases button (been playing it a while) out of curiosity - but was suprised/shocked to see the most expensive in-app purchase was £79.99 call it £80. They can't he serious? you must be MAD if you were to buy them, EA must be bonlers...

    what do you think of these rip offs... ? I hope EA are joking.

    It's pretty nuts, right? I stopped playing it because in order to get through some of the tasks or build things, you need LP or SP, both of which are a ***** to get. Also that it is pretty boring now.

    ikr it is - worked out if I left it I would get LP for abandoning them - Ive got 21LP now without trying but they're hard to get, especially when you refuse to spend a penny.

    I used to play it but I prefer the actual Sims games imo, hated how it's in real time lol. And yeah they are ridiculous, I've played several games where it costs over £200 for in app purchases

    Well, they want to make money from a free app at the end of the day, isn't it?
    You could always just install the unlimited coins apk version of it, or just buy The Sims 3 which is a one-off purchase
