Is it for anyone? Everything I've read about it says that only owners of Sims 2 will be upgraded to the Ultimate edition for free. Even the page you linked says "Because you’re a passionate The Sims 2 player." All third-party news sites are also saying it's for current owners only.

I don't have The Sims 2 and when I redeemed the code it gave me the game and all of the expansion packs.

Interesting. Hopefully that's not a glitch and will still work when I get home. Although with my huge backlog right now, I'm sure chances I'll actually *play* it are probably pretty slim... My favorite part of the Sims games was always designing the houses.

I don't have Origin on this computer but since it's a coupon code, it does not apparently require Origin to redeem, you just log in to the store through a website, redeem the coupon and it's supposed to appear on your account. I guess I'll have to see if it is indeed on my account tonight, but it appears in my listed transactions alongside Plants VS. Zombies, which was EA's "On the House" deal a while back.

You can redeem it from the Origin site. That's how I got it.

Go to the above page, then enter I-LOVE-THE-SIMS for the redemption code.
