The Sims 2 (PSP) is the first of The Sims series for the PlayStation Portable system. It takes place in Strangetown, but unlike the GBA and DS versions, the PSP version is based on the Windows version; the graphics are similar. This is the only PSP Sims game that is minigame as well as mission based. (The Sims 2: Pets is not mission based).
It could be purchased from the PlayStation Network and downloaded on both Sony's PSP and PS Vita handheld video game console. However, this game has been removed from the store by EA as of 2014, as The Sims 2 is no longer supported. Luckily, people who purchased the game before the discontinuation on the original UMD or from the PSN before the discontinuation can still play/download the game on the PSP or PS Vita (digital only). On the PS Vita, the game has enabled double texture filtering and scaling to the HD resolution.
The Sims 2 features 6 minigames (the other 2 are skill building and socializing). Players can only have 3 Sims per Memory Stick regardless of capacity, and 4 saves per Sim.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
