Except they don't. Provided a developer gets the interface right, a simulation game works perfectly well on console. Indeed, Kalypso has already proven that it wants to encourage its developers to think about these things, with a PlayStation 3 port of Port Royale 3 that had be glued to my TV for weeks. Ubisoft produced one of the finest games on the Nintendo Wii with its Anno title. And now the PlayStation 4 has its first serious management sim with Tropico 5, and I couldn't be happier.
