You'll get to experience The Sims in full 3D thanks to the added graphics power of the PS2, meaning a totally new view on their virtual lives and homes.

It'll also be possible to play The Sims with a friend, meaning two players can control the housemates, each picking a character and making them carry out their tasks, such as cooking, eating, watching TV, sleeping and rowing with each other.

A new level based gameplay has been developed, which sees your sims starting off in a shack, and progressing up to bigger and better homes, unlocking more advanced objects and options as you do so.

The Sims are due for release on the PlayStation 2 this Autumn - if they don't fall out with each other first.
