Sims 2 at Consoles?
A couple of days ago, this article appeared on the "Console Gaming Network". It wouldn't be special if it didn't mention that The Sims 2 will be made for consoles as well. If it's true, is questionable. The first thing they mention, is that the PC version will be released in January 2004, but the game is probably NOT quite ready then, as Maxis hasn't even finished CaSIE yet, nor have they already decided on some details like the lengths of each age period. It also makes an assumption, which is not too unbelievable:
"Although a date for the console version of the game is not yet set, with the success of The Sims and The Sims: Bustin' Out, it's a given that the Sims 2 will soon be available for the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube."
Console gamers would probably miss stuff like the 2-player and get-a-life modes if The Sims 2 was ported to those consoles. As it's not expandable on consoles as well, it'll be hard to make it real playable (or a big success) anyway. Finally, there hasn't been a press release about a console version of The Sims 2 whatsoever. It's likely that there will be a new version on the consoles, there's not much doubt about that (if not on the current consoles, then on the next generation of consoles, like the PS3, GameCube 2 and X-Box 2 or whatever their names will be)... But it won't be The Sims 2. If you want to read the article after all, click here.

That is not yet known, and will be announced at the official site in time. The next chat will probably be next thursday but it's not yet know what it'll be about until the announcement at the official site.
