Get a Look at the Sims 4 on Playstation 4

By Kevin Tavore,
There's just something about creating a family and playing god with their lives that strikes certain emotional chords. For some, it's a tale of love and dedication. For others, it's a tale of malice and sick glee. Either way, we certainly learn a little bit about ourselves and our hopes for the human race, or something like that. With The Sims 4 finally confirmed for consoles, we get to hear a bit more from Executive Producer Lyndsay Pearson on the matter:

The addition of a console-version of The Sims 4 has been long-awaited by fans and newcomers alike, and we at Maxis are beyond excited to bring The Sims to new platforms. The game delivers a beautiful The Sims experience on console and comes packed with tons of the fan-favourite content, so players can look forward to the unique gameplay, self-expression, and fun that have come to be tentpoles of The Sims brand. The possibilities to play with life are as endless as the players’ creativity.
