The Sims 2 Open for Biz
Aspyr Media today announced that The Sims 2 Open for Business is live on its website, and that the company has set final system requirements for the game that allows Sims to create their own businesses. Sims can design clothing boutiques, beauty salons, florists, high-end electronics shops, bustling restaurant chains, or virtually any other type of business. Players can hire staff as the business grows while putting talented Sims to work making toys, running the register, crafting floral bouquets, giving sales pitches, or manufacturing robots. The game allows players to pick a business theme, set prices, and treat customers as desired. Players can turn talents into cash by learning the tricks of the trade, training good employees, and firing slackers. The Sims 2 Open for Business requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, as well as the full version of The Sims 2 for Mac OS X.
