News: The Sims are movin' on up to the console side.
The Sims are moving to the console world again. This time the latest edition of the PC series, The Sims 2 is coming to the PS2, Xbox, GameCube, DS, PSP and GBA this fall. All will be developed by Sims-masters Maxis.
New to the console editions will be the ability to directly control your Sim. The console versions will also feature "aspirational gameplay and fully customizable content". I get the fully customizable content, but what does aspirational gameplay mean? Finally, each handheld version is said to include an exclusive storyline.
"Fans have been asking for The Sims 2 on console since it launched on the PC in September last year. We are thrilled to finally be able to bring it to them," said Sinjin Bain, Executive Producer EA/Maxis. "The Sims 2 will be everywhere this fall, giving players on consoles and handhelds all new ways to take control of their Sims and tell all new stories."
