I can’t believe that i overlooked this review/comparison of the PC and Console versions of Pets by IGN. D’oh! Anyways, they’ve compared the two with a list of features in both and that are exclusive to one or the other. There’s also a pic of a Ghost Dog!
What Is It?
Pets on PC/Mac is a proper disc expansion much like World Adventures or Late Night. There’s a new town and obviously the addition of pets.
The Sims 3 Pets for consoles is a separate disc game, complete with a new town and full set of Achievements and Trophies. Karma Powers are back with some new tricks, like one that turns all animals in the area feral and another that allows you to turn a pet into a human and vice versa. Another nice addition is that when your pet meets Death you can control its ghost until it completely passes on or you revive it. There’s also a new feature – the Mystery Journal – which includes five puzzling situations (each mystery has multiple steps) to solve with some help from your furry friends. Finally, you can use Kinect’s voice commands to control your Sims. Phew! That’s a lot of stuff.
Thanks to SimsVIP for the reminder.
