The Sims 2 Open ships

Aspyr Media today announced that The Sims 2 Open for Business for Mac is now shipping, ahead of the original plan to ship the expansion pack in September. The Sims 2 Open for Business 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 new game is available now fore $40 and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and The Sims 2 (full version) as well as a PowerPC G4-, G5-, or Intel-based Mac running at 1.2GHz or faster.
