The Sims 2 Open for Biz

Aspyr Media today announced that The Sims 2 Open for Business for Mac has hit beta status. The game allows sims to 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 Sims 2 Open for Business 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 is slated for shipment in September, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later as well as the full version of The Sims 2 for Mac OS X.

    This gives new meaning to "life simulation". You could literally spend years playing sims 2, and still be able to do much, much more. I can't wait for an HD version, for use with the new powermac/macpro type thing. That way you'll never have to leave your house ever, just do everything online, even video chat w/ doctors and dentists for things!!!!! hahah!
