    The Sims 3 now in development for console and handheld

    According to wii.qj.net, Sims 3 might be landing on the wii, DS and more?



    Indeed, The Sims are bustin' out again. They've given us a heads-up back in February, but today, EA has announced that The Sims 3 is now in development for console and handheld.

    By "console and handheld", they mean the PS3, the Xbox 360, the Wii, and the DS - no PSP version. EA also detailed different features coming to the different platforms.

    The PS3-360 versions will have fate-altering "Karma Powers". To quote the press release, these Karma Powers allow players to "help their Sim 'get lucky,' bless them with 'instant beauty' or be deviant and curse them with an 'epic fail.' But players should use these powers wisely—they may have unexpected results and karma may come back to bite." There will also be avenues to exchange user-generated content, plus the usual Facebook integration.

    The Wii version will get "an all-new beach town with unique residents, traits, careers and lifetime wishes." Additionally, the Wii version also gets the "Life Moments" game which gives players opportunities to earn rewards.

    The DS will get a Story Mode, where "players will control multiple Sims within a family and enjoy life’s special moments." Doing so will unlock additional buildings, items, and whathaveyou. A feature unique to the DS will be the use of a stylus in sculpting Sims' faces and such, as well as in building and designing homes.

    EA hasn't specified a release date, nor have they given any update on that Q3 release they were aiming for.
    Heres what they say about "Sims 3" on nintendolife

    "The Sims 3? On _my_ Wii?"



    Annihilate your fake family from the comfort of your couch

    EA's massively popular life-management Sims franchise is no stranger to Nintendo platforms; the Wii and DS have already seen versions of The Sims 2: Castaways and Pets, not to mention multiple entries in the younger-skewing MySims series. This fall, EA will keep that relationship going by unleashing the hugely successful The Sims 3 onto consoles along with platform-specific extras.


    Exclusive to the Wii is an all-new beach town with its own unique careers, traits, lifetime wishes and residents. There are also adventure quests to be conquered, possibly similar to the ones introduced in the World Adventures expansion, as well as a new head-to-head "Life Moments" game. On the portable side, the DS version will go deep into custom creations using the stylus, ranging from character appearances to decor.
    The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will be seeing a "seamlessly integrated exchange system" that allows players to easily create and share content with others, which we presume will be absent from the Wii and DS versions.


    The Sims 3 was first released for PC (pictured) and Mac last summer and sold 1.4 million copies in its first week, making it EA's most successful computer game launch ever and put it on track to become the top-selling PC game of 2009, according to the NPD Group.
    Check out the full press release below as you plot how exactly you'll pick off your Sims one by one.

Players can help their Sim “get lucky,” bless them with “instant beauty” or be deviant and curse them with an “epic fail.” But players should use these powers wisely—they may have unexpected results and karma may come back to bite.


    Rich, immersive gameplay is complimented with a seamlessly integrated exchange system on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms where gamers will be more connected than ever before as they design, build, and share their creations and download content from other players around the world without ever leaving the game.** Facing short and long term challenges, players will reap rewards and trophies and can even share achievements with friends by connecting to Facebook**.

Finally, players will also enjoy several adventure quests, as the game will challenge them to explore their town and discover the secrets therein.


    Never before seen on Nintendo DS, players can use the stylus to build their Sims’ homes with tools, draw walls and floors, and customize virtually everything from décor objects, textures, and more. Players will use the stylus to sculpt their Sims’ facial features, choose hair styles and clothing, and dictate personalities in the most robust Create a Sim yet for a handheld game. In “Story Mode,” players will control multiple Sims within a family and enjoy life’s special moments. For the first time ever on the Nintendo DS, players can enjoy a complete life simulation as they guide their Sims through completing challenges to unlock additional items, new buildings and landmarks, and more.


    “The Sims series continues to be one of the most successful videogames of all time by providing universally appealing content and focusing on the player’s imagination, emergent gameplay mechanics, and the innate humor evident in the virtual world of The Sims,” said Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio. “We’re building on this foundation and applying new features that will make for a robust, deep and rewarding gameplay experience. I’m extremely proud of the game that the team is making and can’t wait to bring these exciting new features like “Karma Powers” to life and get them into players’ hands.”
