Pets is Official [Updated]
The Sims 2 Pets will be released on PC (Expansion pack), PlayStation 2, GameCube, Nintendo DS and GBA (Separate games) on 17 October. The PSP version, similar to the PS2 and GameCube version will be released about a month later. All versions feature dogs and cats, with Create a Pet as base to create them. Pets will need training and using codes you can unlock unique accessories in the games. The gameplay for all versions is open-ended, like the classic freeplay mode. On the PC there will be generations of pets, including the genetics, and careers for your pets in Security, Show Business or Service. On the consoles, PS2, GameCube and PSP, there will be a central town park where you can head over to with your pets, shop for pet items, and socialise with others. The DS version is all about managing a pet care centre, where you have to take care of other Sims' pets. Selling pet products gives you even more simoleons. Finally there's the GBA version, where you have to take care of the town's pets as well, in Barkersville. Again, teaching tricks is one of the tasks, but in this version you'll also be able to participate in tournaments and championships to win prizes.

Along with the announcement, EA has released a trailer, screenshots, artworks, pack shots and the logo, all of which you can find right here. For the trailer, please pick a high quality version (15.1 Mb) or the low quality version (4.0 Mb). Read more for all artworks, screenshots and packshots! As you can see on the pack shots, the European Pegi rating for all console and handheld versions will be 7+, compared to the 12+ rating for the PC. The American rating is still pending, although The Sims Zone has learned from Maxis that it'll be E10+ for the consoles and handhelds, and as you can see it's T for Teen for the PC expansion.

Check out the press release from EA for some more details, as well as the official product page. Also make sure you don't miss our preview later today, or the developer chat!

Ok. I hope you don't mind that I've put them on my site, with thanks to The Sims Zone of course.
