Electronic Arts today announced that the Sims, the best selling PC game of all time, is in development for the Playstation 2. Details inside!

- Electronic Arts today announced that The Sims is in development for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, at the company's Walnut Creek-based Maxis studio in conjunction with Austin-based, Edge of Reality, Ltd. The Sims was the best selling PC game of both 2000 and 2001 and is now the best selling PC game of all time. The Ps2 version will have exclusive features: in addition to the classic Sim-Style open-ended game mode, The Sims for Ps2 will include an all new level-based game mode and a two-player mode.

"The #1 selling PC game of all time is coming to the number one console, giving players a new way to fall in love with The Sims," said Michael Perry, lead designer of the title. "We've completely redesigned the controls and added new game play creating a brand new way to experience the game."

In the new level-based game mode, players can start with just one Sim and move him or her on up as they advances through life's big moments. Progressing through new challenges, the Sims will be able to move into better homes and unlock new Playstation 2 exclusive objects. A teppanyaki table, bug zapper, and a strip poker game are just some of the items your Sims will discover and use to their advantage along the way.

In the two-player mode, players will have the possibility to play with or against a friend. It will be possibile to save your house on a memory card and then use it on your friend's system.

Just like in the original version of The Sims, players will be able to create the perfect Sim home, customize the Sims who live there and control their lives. But now in this version of the game, players can explore an entirely new 3D world, thanks to the power of the PlayStation 2 console. There is also a cast of wacky neighbors to interact with that can't be found in any other Sims game.
