The Sims 4[edit]

Hi Joey, I undid your edit to The Sims 4 because it is made up entirely of text that is copyrighted. Wikipedia doesn't allow copyrighted material to be used in its articles, mainly because it's against the law. There's more information over at Wikipedia:Copyright, and also Wikipedia:FAQ/Copyright#Can I add something to Wikipedia that I got from somewhere else?, which talks specifically about press release materials. If you don't understand any of this or think there's something wrong with my reasoning, please head over to Talk:The Sims 4 and post there. — Preceding signed comment added by Cymru.lass (talkcontribs) 10:21, 22 August 2013 (UTC)
