Many people viewed it as just a matter of time before The Sims came along to jump on the console bandwagon- and now here it is.
The game will be releasing this Fall for the 360, PS3, Wii, and DS. EA claims that each version will contain different features to compliment the platforms’ various strengths.
EA producer Sam Player stated, “Building on the unique traits system, living open neighborhood, lifetime wishes, and endless customization options, we’ve tailored each platform of The Sims 3 with exclusive features to allow for even more control, creativity, and connectivity.” Exclusive downloadable content will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, as well as the ability to upload user-generated content. The Wii version will contain a new area, Beach Town, and the DS port will come with creation tools that utilize the dual screens.
All versions of the game will also feature “Karma Powers”, a new system that allows players to instantly apply various positive or negative affects to their Sims.
Unfortunately for PSP owners, the press release only stated releases for , “consoles and handheld”- so no PSP version.
