Sims 3 slowly making its way to consoles later this year

What’s the big holdup here? Apparently the latest version of real-life simulator, The Sims 3, which came out on PC in June of last year will make its way to consoles, but not until the third quarter of this year.

While specific consoles weren’t named, EA apparently said that the game will be available on consoles and handheld systems, according to Kotaku. So we’re likely dealing with Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PSP, and Nintendo DS at the very least.

It’s been available on the iPhone and iPod touch since last June, too, if you’re looking for a portable version to play now (see review).
