Sims 3 PS3 Wii Xbox 360 DS

EA intends to get as much money out of The Sims 3 as possible, and so it has announced that the video game system counterparts of the PC game are now in the works. Sometime in Fall 2010, DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 owners will all be able to experience The Sims 3 in new ways.

Each version of The Sims 3 will have its own unique touches. The DS version will allow players to create and customize with the stylus and touch screen, and also allow players to go through a full life simulation in Story Mode. The Wii version will have a multiplayer Life Moments portion, adventure quests and a beach town. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will allow users to create and share content online while playing the game, offer Facebook connectivity and contain trophies and achievements – but only if you’re the original owner of the game and registered your copy. All four versions of the game will feature Karma Powers, which allow players to inflict effects like “epic fail” or “instant beauty” on their sims with good and bad results.

It’s surprising that EA is omitting a PSP release. After all, it brought The Sims 2, The Sims 2: Pets and The Sims 2: Castaway to Sony’s handheld. The second two weren’t terribly good, but the PSP The Sims 2 game really wasn’t too terrible. I guess it just wouldn’t be profitable to the company to work on a PSP The Sims 3.

    I could never really enjoy the console/handheld versions of The Sims because I didn't like being restricted so much….with all those goals and tasks that you have to complete throughout the game…

    It kind of defeats the purpose of calling it a "God" game, doesn't it 😛
