A host of new Sims products was recently revealed by EA, although still not completely official. The first was put on EA's game registration page, titled "The Sims Life Stories". It's unsure what this title will be for, although it could very well be an upcoming expansion pack or stuff pack, after (or just before) In-Season. SnootySims
reports that this game is now available as pre-order from GameStop
, for January 2007 at the price of $39.99. MaxoidMel has confirmed
the game on the BBS, saying more news will follow soon. A Sims title for the Wii is also in production, although there's no news regarding its title or any other details. Nothing at all has been confirmed regarding the PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 platforms.
The biggest confirmation yet is probably that the Sims 3 is definitely in production, and it'll probably be a fiscal year 2009 title. That means its release will be somewhere between 1 April 2008 and 31 March 2009. Naturally this can still be shifted back and forth, and so far the only known fact is that the game is in development. Nothing more, nothing less. Details can be found on GameSpot
Our colleagues at SimsZone
have also discovered that for Life Stories several domains have been registered. There's TheSimsLifeStories.com
and just TheSimsStories.com
. For the Wii there are TheSimsWii.com
. All these domains still point to the existing official site
for the Sims 2. In all cases we'll give you more news regarding any of these titles as we get it.
