The Sims 3 will be released in the twelve month period beginning April 2008, and while a PC release is a certainty, platform details are currently unknown. It's also been announced that there will be a new The Sims game coming to the Wii, plus a special The Sims 2 game for PS3, but exact release dates haven't been confirmed.

"There is a Sims title that is being specifically developed for the Wii platform," said EA chief financial officer Warren Jenson during a post-earnings conference call. Jenson also mentioned The Sims II holiday edition for PS3, which is said to arrive either in the 2006 or 2007 holiday season. The latter seems most likely, seeing as no one had heard about the game until now.

The Xbox 360 was strangely absent from EA's The Sims murmurings, but it would be a huge surprise if the console didn't see the franchise at some point in the future.

The Sims 2 pets was my most favourite sims game. The Sims are the greatest games i have played. Showing the life of a sim. Playing a Sim and the life of a sim is so fun! Like the sims2 pets, you get to have a pet and playwith them. Althought they cause havoc, its really cool how you can walk around with them and playing with them. This so beats nintendogs. I love the sims so much. When the sims 3 comes out, can you make some funny parts and a fun and adventurous life of a Sim! But for now, I love the Sims 2 Pets!
