    It depends really, your pc may not have enough space or maybe you dont have the right graphic card ..... Do you know why it wont play, what did the site tell you?

    Just asked the OH and he said take it back, unfortunately Sims3 is not really compatible for laptop use.

    We had the same trouble when my daughter wanted to play the Sims games a few years ago. We were getting her a cheap computer to play them on thinking about £300 but we went to PC World to show them the game and ask them if it would work on the one we chose and they said no and the cheapest one that it would work on was £700. :eek: We ended up getting it.:rolleyes:

    I tried to install my horse and me on my laptop for my young daughter to play on but that wouldn't work either.

    It says it won't work on my laptop but funnily enough I got it the day it came out and played it without a single problem with the graphics set as high as they go so I don't think I'd trust that website 100% ;)

    I've still got all The Sims 2 games installed on my laptop so I'm not sure if that's why it's saying it won't work. If your brother will buy it off you there's no harm in trying it :D

    My oh downloaded the sims 3 and it works fine on our pc, if a little slow at times.
    If you open it and it doesn't work you could always sell it on ebay.

    laptops get out of date so quick that so many games will not work on them anymore :(

    thats why we got a desktop only for gaming and my sims 3 work great on it...even with the ingame settings set to high quality :D great game btw :D ... and a laptop only for online usage :eek:ut: hehe

    A patch came out not long ago and I know alot of people have had the same problem with it crashing. I don't know if the patch fixes that problem but if it doesn't there should be one soon to fix it.
