I honestly think critics will never accept The Sims on consoles because of how great it is on PC. I'm sure console only players will enjoy this very much. I have the PC version but I'm still getting the 360 version tonight for my GF when I pick up Fable 3. Should be a good game, Sims is always great fun.

They should have had the console version with built in mouse/keyboard support, the problem is though that so few people use a KB/M on their consoles, next gen they should bundle one in with the console that way console gamers can get full fledged RTS games and there will be no excuse for lack of support, diablo 4 anyone?

I wanted Move support at the least. I really want it on my console, but slow load times and the unnatural controls is going to make me cautious

This is part of that "lazy dev" syndrome we been hearing and talking about.

Games like this and RTS's aren't bad or subpar on consoles because consoles can't handle them....

They tend to be subpar because developers shortcut the experience.

Even if this game got 11/10s I still wouldn't play it.

"Then why did you come here?"

Same reason trolls flock to Kinect topics I guess....

I haven't gotten around to playing the PC version yet. Now that the PC version is cheaper than it was I should pick that up. It wouldn't hurt to also buy the PS3 version when the price drops as well, to see how well this game performs on console. Good game for console gamers though. Maybe when I get a new GF, this would be a perfect gift!

My roommate is picking this up tomorrow. It's a solid score for a console version of The Sims. I have it for my MacBook Pro, it just feels right playing it on a computer, but hey, to each their own.
