Any news on sims 3 for the iphone?

Hi, a while ago i came across numerouse sites talking about EA's future iphone releases, and i found sims 3, every website says the same thing though and i have found no new informatio on the subject, i was woundering if andyone here knows anything about the sims 3 release on the iphone as all i know is that it is gonna be releaed in 2009 which is now!
i would appreciate any posts on the subject as i am very interested to find out more about this upcoming app.

Well, it says on most of their games that Sims 3 is going to be released soon...

SimCity was just released a few weeks ago... I wouldn't expect Sims any time soon.

By the way, welcome to TA forums. It's nice to see new people

I don't know. It will be very expensive regardless, and I didn't like it on the PC. Try searching first, and if other places don't know anything, nobody on here has insider information, we do have an EA rep, but he doesn't get on very often.I suggest if you want some more knowledgeable people try this. They may have more info.

You played the Sims 3 on your computer eh? A game that's not out? Interesting...

Well, the iPhone is powerful, but RAM will be an issue with something as complex as The Sims. I would guess that the polygon count would have to be pretty low to make up for it. Don't expect a blowaway title.

Sims 1 and 2. I was referring to the other 2, which I didn't like at all.

I hated Sims 2 for the PC because of its lack of any sort of initial directions(it has literally too much variety).
BUT i loved the Sims for the PSP, because it had a main story line(which was very creative and funny), a load of not too obvious sidequests and you still had the option of just buying stuff for your house, getting a wife, going to the loo, etc..
So im hoping that the Iphone Version might take into that very direction.
We'll see.

The Sims 3 for PC is going to be released on February 20. We can probably expect it to be released for the iPhone around the same time, as long as it doesn't end up like NFS.
