The Sims 3 will also be available for Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch, as well as other mobile devices later in the summer of 2009. Russell Arons, Vice President of Marketing for EA said, “The Sims 3 will be the original IP summer blockbuster of 2009 as we build off the success of the best-selling PC franchise of all time to create awareness with both loyal Sims fans and new players.”
There are several new features to The Sims 3 that take the franchise to places it has never been before. The new seamless environment allows players to explore any part of the neighborhood that they want. With the ability of your Sims to roam anywhere, the new experiences for you as a player are endless. The next new feature is the ability to create your own Sims. Nip, tuck, and chisel the perfect Sims in your likeness. Another cool feature is the ability to select your Sims personality traits. These determine how your Sims behaves and interacts with other Sims. Traits can be combined and they include: brave, loner, perfectionist, klepto, romantic, and many more. The Sims 3 also allows players to customize everything. Houses, furnishings, wall paper, window shades, and clothing; you design it all. A new gameplay feature allows your Sims to set short and long-term goals to be achieved. The basic idea behind this game is that there is more to your Sims life then ever before.
