The Sims 2: Pets (PSP)[edit source]

I was quite surprised that my brother got home with this game in his PSP! I never knew there was one. The gameplay is a bit similar to the console version, but I only heard that from my younger brother. I haven't played it myself. Should it has its own article?

You mean it wasn't already? Oh, snap! I have the game as well :3A trip to hell is an exciting experience, isn't it? 10:04, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I misread it. I don't think it warrants its own article, as it is not just similar to the console version but also identical. The only thing that changes is the UI, the size of the neighborhood, the building gameplay and the object limiter. The graphics remain intact. A trip to hell is an exciting experience, isn't it? 10:07, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm... I guess you're right. But the PSP version still needs to be mentioned, at least a section. I haven't done any research yet, so I couldn't do it myself for now. Nikel Talk 10:18, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

On the Wii[edit source]

This is the only Sims game I have... aside from Sim Cities Games. Annawantimes (Talk) 19:42, December 28, 2011 (UTC)

The last pack made by Maxis?[edit source]

On The Sims Wiki, we report that Pets was the last expansion pack made by Maxis, and Happy Holiday Stuff the last stuff pack by Maxis. We report that Seasons was the first pack made by The Sims Studio (then known as The Sims Division).

Wikipedia's page for Seasons says "Maxis" made the pack while Bon Voyage was made by "The Sims Division".

Infinite Sims says Seasons was made by Redwood Shores[1] and that Pets was made by Maxis[2].

Our page for The Sims Studio agrees with Infinite Sims and our own pages for Pets and Seasons. Wikipedia's page for The Sims Studio doesn't even list any products for The Sims 2.

If people are able to find more sources feel free to list them here. I'm just setting this out here now as a reference for future discussion and undoubted confusion over where the cutting off point was when Maxis was no longer developing TS2. The existing consensus is that FreeTime and Apartment Life for sure were not made by Maxis, but the facts for Seasons and Bon Voyage appear to be unclear. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 21:30, April 16, 2018 (UTC)

I didn't realise that Maxis didn't help with FT and AL. I always assumed their contract said they would continue to participate in the making of TS2 EPs until all the EPs of TS2 were released. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 11:45, April 17, 2018 (UTC)
