commented on Here's why The Sims 4 won't have pools or toddlers in reply to Kitty
Kitty said:If you know anything about video games you will know that programmers have limited space on a disc. Actually the game oblivion:Elder scrolls maps...My reply got deleted due to my phone messing up so I'll be brief: Discs are so large nowadays that this is definitely not the reason; games push 40GB on PS4/XBO, and Blu-Ray runs up to 100GB last I heard. These small mechanics wouldn't take up much space. Nowadays there's so much leftover space on discs that developers don't even compress anymore for physical copies. The reason it's being cut is because there are reported cases of Sims literally throwing toddlers into pools. EA doesn't want to deal with the backlash if that word gets out, and thus it's cut. But mods will fix that quickly.
