The Sims announced for Xbox and Gamecube

The Sims

In one of the least surprising press releases ever, EA have announced that Maxis’ great title, The Sims, will cross over to Microsoft and Nintendo’s machines.

The PS2 version has only been released here in the UK today, and it has already done well enough to fuel ports to other platforms. The two new versions will feature all the modes, items and locations in the PS2 version: the level-based Get A Life mode, the open-ended game and the 2 player Sim-Offs will all be included.

More info on the Xbox and GameCube versions soon, and if you’re lucky, maybe a review of the PS2 version.
