The game will have some 2 player games like Strip Poker but there are others in development. Players can change every detail of their Sim from hair color to different objects of clothing. The new vanity mirror one of the new PS2 objects will let you change the appearence of your Sim at any point. The controls are built around the Dual Shock with no mouse needed.
