Gameinformer heeft een nieuwe preview online gezet van De Sims 3 voor Playstation 3. Net zoals alle andere previews bevat de informatie niks nieuws, maar het blijft leuk om alles even door te spitten.
Aside from other small tweaks or content additions, the largest change – and adjustment – in the console edition of The Sims 3 is the control scheme. At first, playing on a controller feels slightly restrictive, but EA has done a fantastic job of making navigation as organic as possible without a mouse and keyboard. The d-pad is used to play, pause, and speed up time, and can be modified by holding L2 to maneuver between levels in a building. Pressing circle will scroll you through your current action queue, where you can manage your current tasks. Clicking the left stick automatically highlights your Sim, making it easy to access their cell phone, change their outfit, or dig through their inventory. Square opens the most important menu in live mode, where you can see expanded information like the status of your relationships, current wishes and opportunities, career goals, skill breakdowns, and more.
