Recently, Sims Network attended a behind closed-doors presentation of Pets at GamesCom. Here’s what they experienced.

In The Sims 3 Pets on consoles there is a lot of new gameplay. The Karma Powers feature a lot of people probably know from The Sims 3 on consoles is back in this console game. It’s a console only feature, it is a very popular one and it’s a big part of the gameplay. A lot of the karma powers are available to pets only in this game. There is a mystery journal with mysteries to solve, which will earn your Sim pets simoleons. This way they can contribute financially to the household.

A big difference between the Sims 3 Pets games on consoles and the previous Pets games on consoles (Sims 2 Pets) is that this time you can actually control the pets! You don’t need some kind of cheat to be able to control them! And there is a lot to do for pets in the game. There are also a lot of customization options for pets in The Sims 3 Pets on consoles. Pets have actual needs and desires now, just like Sims.
