The Sims 3: Katy Perry's Sweet Treats is the sixth stuff pack for The Sims 3. It was released in North America on June 5, 2012.

Description[edit | edit source]

Indulge your Sims with the sweet and vibrant style of Katy Perry. The Sims™ 3 Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats pack showcases a vast range of décor items, furniture, and, of course, fabulous fashions and hairstyles! Inspired by Katy’s real-life clothing and props, these fun furnishings, décor, and fashions will add a dash of sweet style to your Sims’ lives. Packed with more stuff than you have ever seen, your Sims will also enjoy three all-new spectacular venues including a local hangout, a town park, and a neighborhood swimming pool—each decked out in delicious Katy Perry style!

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Sweeten your Sims’ lives with delicious, Katy Perry-inspired items from a cupcake-themed guitar and candy playground equipment, to luscious cotton candy trees and more.
  • Make your Sims’ homes and neighborhood into a vibrant candytopia, complete with whimsical and colorful furnishings and décor, such as a banana split sofa, a fountain made of candy, or even a waffle cone picnic table.
  • Outfit your Sims in an array of new clothing and hairstyles that are straight from Katy Perry’s red carpet appearances, music videos and concert performances all recreated for The Sims in a true to life way.
  • Transform the neighborhood with three, all-new, pre-built venues. Take your Sims for a dip at Patty’s Natural Baths, the sweet new pool venue, stroll over to the Bonbon Lawn Park that’s filled with candy-coated playground equipment, or relax at the sugar-filled Cake Pleasure Dome, the town’s charming local hangout.

Release and post-release[edit | edit source]

Sweet Treats was first discovered as the 6th stuff pack from a South African gaming retailer at the start of 2012. It was announced on April 3, 2012[3] and was released on June 8, 2012 in North America. The Steam Version became available on November 20, 2012 along with Diesel, Supernatural and Seasons.

On July 15, 2013, a Community Manager for EA confirmed[4] that this stuff pack has been retired and is no longer available on Origin. Therefore, EA will not produce any more physical or digital copies of Katy Perry's Sweet Treats. Unused game codes for the pack can still be used to add the game to one's Origin library.

Price concerns[edit | edit source]

When the game was announced, several users from The Sims 3 forums had expressed concerns[5][6][7] of the pack's price being US$30, €30 and £25 compared to US$20, €20 and £10 which is the price of other stuff packs.

Some users said that Katy Perry's contract may be the cause of the price increase as they also compared it with The Sims 3: Showtime: Katy Perry Collectors Edition. Other users said that it was due to the fact that the pack has a lot of content compared to other stuff packs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A live chat was announced on the same date of the pack's announcement, and it was broadcast on April 12, 2012, 10am Pacific Standard Time.[8] A second live chat was announced on the same day of the first live chat and it was broadcasted on May 24, 2012, at 10am Pacific Standard Time.[9]
  • The pack's name is different from other stuff packs' names, because its name does not include the word "Stuff".
  • The pack's price was higher than other stuff packs in The Sims 3, but the price[10] is now the same as other Stuff Packs.
  • This is the first stuff pack to date in The Sims 3 era to have a delayed release on Steam.
  • Katy Perry appeared in the official trailer for the Stuff Pack.
  • This is the second expansion pack/stuff pack to have been discontinued before the next Sims game is released, the first being The Sims 2 Holiday Stuff.
