It has been some time since the PS4 is announced with its full suite of gamer-centric features such as Ustream integration, Sony has shown their hand and now it’s Microsoft’s turn. The big reveal kicked off in standard MS fashion by having Don Mattrick come out and talk about how the Xbox would take over the living room as your all purpose media box. After a few agonizing minutes, the burning question on everyone’s mind was answered; the next generation Xbox would be named the Xbox One contrary to the rampant rumor that the console would be named the Xbox Infinity.
After the critical and commercial success of SimCity (if you’re willing look past the post-release fiasco), developers Maxis decided to ditch the skyscrapers and factories to focus their attention on their venerable Simulation franchise “The Sims”.
Maxis and Electronic Arts announced that The Sims 4 (a direct sequel to the 2009′s The Sims 3) is currently in development at The Sims Studio and it’s slated for a 2014 release. The Sims 4 would feature new and intuitive tools to encourage players to personalize their world. Players would also be able to share their world with friends online though the game would be a predominately single-player offline experience.
