De Engelstalige PC World heeft op deze pagina
een interview online gezet met Ben Bell, Sims 3 Executive Producer.
GO: The Sims 3 is actually a prequel of sorts, right? Is it also an alternate timeline? Will Romulans and Vulcans come shooting out of a black hole at startup?
BB: We took some of the characters who appeared in past games and we created earlier versions of them. That was more of a nod to our fans who’ve followed the series. But The Sims isn’t really about those characters. They’re background for your character, and while you can play as these unique characters we’ve created and dropped into the town, you can also choose to replace any of them with people that you know, your favorite TV character, your favorite sports heroes, whatever it is.
