I have a feeling we have already covered this long ago, but nothing beats a refresher!

With The Sims TM 3 available this fall for the PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox® 360 video game system, the WiiTM and Nintendo DSTM, players around the world will be able to create Sims with unique personalities, fulfill their desires…or not, and control their lives within a living neighborhood. All-new features make it easier than ever to mess with life as players can unlock the ultimate “Karma Powers” for instant control and unleash them on their Sims.

“We’re bringing players the best console and handheld game for The Sims franchise to date and are excited to offer a unique experience for all types of gamers on their platform of choice,” explained Sam Player, Executive Producer at EA. “Building on the unique traits system, living open neighborhood, lifetime wishes, and endless customization options, we’ve tailored each platform of The Sims 3 with exclusive features to allow for even more control, creativity, and connectivity.”

With Karma Powers, 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.

The Sims series’ continues to provide universally appealing content, emergent gameplay mechanics, and an innate sense of humor in its gameplay while bringing out the player’s creativity. The Sims 3 for console/HH builds on this foundation while offering new features that will make for a robust, deep and rewarding gameplay experience.
