C|NET has published an interview with Maxis' Will Wright, creator of The Sims. Wright talks about a number of different issues including the appeal of the game to both men and women, the effect that the bestselling game has had on the industry and the upcoming online version of The Sims. "[The Sims Online] is going to be totally different," says Wright. "It's an entirely different game, because all of a sudden the things that you want to be doing are different. People will have much broader bandwidth to interact with the characters now that they know they're real."
