The Sims on Your Mobile Phone
I can't wait for The Sims 2 to come out for the PC in a couple of weeks (September 17th!) and now it turns out there's a mobile version coming soon too. Electronic Arts will be releasing several titles next year for mobile phones, and the Sims will definitely be one of them.
There's a verrry scaled down sim people game for the Palm OS available now called Bebop, but it's kind of Tamagotchi-like in that there's not very much you can actually do with your little critters. Speaking of Tamagotchis: R.I.P. Juno and A a a, this time permanently. They died again(for the 5th and 8th times respectively) and when my niece and I tried to resurrect them, a big scary flashing X appeared on the screens instead of the eggs, signaling that their little lithium souls had had enough. I hope there's an autonomous afterlife for them since we were such bad Tamagotchi masters.
