    This is from CraigLaw's Twitter account:

    'Here's the news: The Sims 3 will be shipping for Mac, PC, iPhone/iPod touch and mobile devices on June 2'

    Nothing else is known such as the price or gameplay.

    Can't wait!

    Awesome, not much of a sims fan, but it's the sort of thing that could work really well on the old iPhone.

    :eek: WTF?

    I honestly didn't see this coming at all. I thought they'd port an old version, not the new one. I'm real curious now.

    Ever since they announced they were bringing new games to the iPhone it was going to be Sims 3. I'm just praying that it isnt $19.99

    I think I'd rather they port Sims 1 or 2.
    I'm hoping Sims 3 doesn't turn into Sims 2 GBA (more like an RPG than Sims) or worse still.. iPhone Spore.

    I'm sure it will be (if that $19.99 rumor is true). There are a lot of games by big devs that were announced a long time ago and then had no more news about them. After the $19.99 rumor started, those games started popping up again (Bio Shock, GTA, etc).

    Im sure it won't. Simcity was brought in its full glory and my bet is Sims 3 will also

    Depending on how well it is done I still think that it will be kept to $9.99 like Simcity was. I will ask eamobile and tell you any details I get

    My guess is that it will coincide with the release of the new iPhone with the rumored updated architecture - including a more powerful processor. It could be a premier title for the new phone.

    SimCity was an older game though. This is going to be a new one. Unless they give it a "The Sims: Origins" treatment, it'll likely be $19.99.

    Well thats what I mean. Sim City is old (3000), so of course its a full port. Same for Sims 1/2 if that were ported.
    Sims 3 however, theres no way the iPhone can match with the graphics from the version, so they either have to cut that down, or cut down the game entirely (like Spore).

    Although.. saying that.. the 19.99 premium section is interesting. And of course NFS.

    From eamobile: So far, I haven't seen anything that support the 'rumor' of $20 games. Think about it, you could charge that amount now if you wanted to

    I think they will be heading to the $20 mark after that reply. Also they really don't want to give us knowledge of anything else
