The Sims 3 for PlayStation 3 is a single player life simulation game that brings authentic gameplay elements, long enjoyed in PC versions of the game, to PlayStation 3 players. From character creation and customization tools, to persistent online access and the ability to share content with the larger The Sims community, The Sims 3 allows players to craft the lives of their Sims, like never before. Additional features include: a new Karma game element that can impact the lives of Sims for good or ill, and controls conveniently mapped to the standard game controller layout.
A True The Sims Experience for PlayStation 3
In The Sims 3 players create Sims with unique personalities, fulfill their desires, and control their lives within a living gameworld. To a large extent this has been the case in previous console based The Sims games, but things are taken several steps further in this release. The Sims 3 features Sim creation functionality that is essentially the same as players enjoy on the PC platform, with the only appreciable difference being that the interface is optimized for game controller use. Players also enjoy improved and easy movement throughout the game by way of the standard controller layout, using the analog stick to move your Sims and the D-Pad for motions in the up/down directions in 3D space. Additional features include the ability to connect to the Sims Store and the greater online Sims community to share your creations and download content from other players around the world, without leaving your game, and the inclusion of life cycles and lifetime wishes, that can lead to ultimate happiness for Sims, if fulfilled.
New Karma Powers
Another major addition to the series in this release is the inclusion of the concept of Karma. The Sims 3 allows players can unlock all-new Karma Powers and unleash them on your Sims. These can be used to help your Sims get lucky with the power of "rapid romance", bless them with "instant beauty" or at the opposite end of things, curse them with the "instant enemy." Use these powers wisely, because they may have unexpected results. Either way, as you guide your Sims through life The Sims 3 allows you to complete opportunities to unlock items and rewards like never before.

There are only a few things that don't seem to flow, the major point being build/buy mode. It is so easy to switch in and out of build and buy on PC - just a click - but now I must hit the select button and navigate over to build/buy mode. The town map is also accessed from the select button menu. These things take away from the larger feeling of The Sims 3 PC version, especially since that aspect was one of the few improvements over The Sims 2 (PC). The continuity could be improved with Build/Buy and the Town Map being on a menu that is quicker to access. The town also seems small after playing the previous games with expansions. (Though I imagine there will be plenty of add-on content to come.) I don't think the loading times are bad, but I have been playing New Vegas. Anyone who has played Sims with about six expansions installed will think the loading times are lightning-quick.
The slight annoyances do not take away from the full game experience.Read more ›
Because I have played this game for quite a while now and I have been experiencing one difficulty after another! There are so many GLITCHES, so many LIMITATIONS, so many STUPID THINGS that just make NO SENSE that I am finally so frustrated and disappointed that I am at the point where I may not play the PS3 Sims 3 again.
First and for most, here is possibly the biggest CON to the game:
You CANNOT switch Active Households.
That's right, you absolutely, under any condition, can EVER switch your active household. If you woo a sim-neighbor and get married to them guess what? They are moving into YOUR house. Even though they have a fully functional house it is completely OFF LIMITS to you and you will never be able to live in it or any of the other houses not selectable through the "Move Out" option.
This also means that when you have children and they grow up you cannot switch between their new families and your mother + father family. You cannot switch period. You can move out with the children and leave the parents behind. And the only way you can ever play the parents again is by befriending them and asking them to move into your current house with you.Read more ›
