Post Previews The Sims 3 for consoles
The Sims 3 console - what's new

Read full preview here - ... s-new.html

Interesting facts:

User interface
User interface is a bit different from the one used in the PC version.
While in live mode, on the left you can see a widget with timing, budget and speed options.

Sims’ icons are on the right and you can select the Sim you want to control by pressing Y.
Dialogs appear up on the right and if they are specific to a particular game area (like wishes or careers), you can see area name on the top of the window.

You can scroll the tabs with LB or RB and open Simology window (for more details) by pressing X. There you have to select the Sim you want to read some info about by pressing LT or RT. With LB and RB you can see the different tabs: relationships, opportunities, career, skills, sim info… Every tab has different options that let you enter more windows with even more details.

I can't wait to get this game. It's ashame not too many people are interested in it. I think a lot of people are scared it's not going to compare to pc version because of the last gen console versions but the consoles they make today are more powerful and expansions will be offered thru xbox live and sony marketplace.

EA will also intergrate a sims 3 store for the consoles eventually because they know they will make money with it by milking customers on the consoles.

Will the consoles be as great as Late Night no and far from it but for the consoles atleast it lets people who can't play the base game because they don't have a pc capable of playing the pc version to play it on the consoles.

The consoles will eventuelly add dlc which will probebly mean some latenight objects like hottubs and other stuff. Another plus to the console versions is you can play them on big screen tv's. The wiii version is unique as it allows sims to swim in the ocean,sunbathe,jet ski and have house boats and also weather something the pc and ps3 and 360 versions don't have.

are they really gonna be adding legit expansions? that sounds great, but the xbox my family has, only has 4gb of memory, and its only used for saving games. however if the only way to add expansions was to download and install them right into your hardrive, then i wouldnt be able to, because i wont have enough memory :( . ru sure thats the only way they will provide EPs?

HEY =D i like to obsess over sims
