Have you been wanting to play the sims, but not on the computer? Now you can!!

In the 4th quarter of this year, the sims 3 will be released on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, DS and Wii

and i know what you guys are probably saying, "oh there is no way that they are not going to put all the features that the PC has"..well, think again.

here is consent from IGN talking with Sam Player (Executive Producer for the Sims)
QUOTE
IGN: What features have you had to cut out for the console versions?

Sam Player: With a life simulation game like The Sims 3, the player experience is created by mixing several complex gameplay systems and having them work together. If we tried to remove any of these systems – examples are the Traits system to define The Sims' personalities, the Opportunities system to generate player quests or the Wish system to drive The Sims motivations – we wouldn't be creating an experience that was true to The Sims 3. So features are adapted and enhanced for each individual console. For example, on the PS3 and Xbox360, we changed the world map to a more easily navigated 2D map view for ease of player control. On the Wii, we chained multiple Opportunities together to give the player longer "quest-like" paths to follow. On the DS, we took advantage of the stylus control to give the player the ability to "paint on their Sim" to sculpt and customize it the way they want.


So whacha think about The Sims coming to the Consoles?
I'm questioning about if im going to get it or not...

I think those kinds of games are more fun to play on the computer.

Some games are better with a controller (Racing games, flight sims, third person shooters) And some are better with a keyboard and mouse (casual games, first person shooters)

I'm guessing.... The graphics for the Wii and DS release won't be that great compared to the PS3 and 360. Maybe there will be a wider audience for Nintendo fans, but I guess the Wii could really use some good games right now.
