“With songs that represent a variety of genres from indie and hip hop to country and pop, every Sims player will find something they adore! “

“We had an absolute blast recording ‘Don’t Cha’ in Simlish for The Sims 2 Pets! We were laughing the whole time, trying to communicate this chart-topping hit in a totally different language was such a riot,” said Nicole Scherzinger, lead singer for the Pussycat Dolls. “I think we did a great job - the song is definitely as catchy in Simlish as it is in English! And the pets - they’re so adorable and lifelike!”

“The Sims is truly an international phenomenon, and the music must reflect that. For The Sims 2 Pets, we wanted to present great artists with international appeal. Pop icons Aly & AJ and The Pussycat Dolls re-recorded their smash hits in ‘Simlish’, while Flaming Lips re-recorded a song from their new album especially for the game. It is amazing to see these artists, as well as stars from Italy, Finland, Norway, Spain and Switzerland get into the ‘Simlish’ spirit. It’s a whole new world of music for an all-new world of The Sims,” said Steve Schnur, Executive of Worldwide Music and Marketing at EA.

“We’ve always been known to jump at opportunities that challenge us to do something totally fresh that we’ve never done. Needless to say, recording ‘Free Radicals’ in Simlish allowed us to do just that,” said front man Flaming Lips singer, Wayne Coyne. “The Sims 2 Pets was an ideal product considering we have three mutts, Ted, Max and the Dragon Dog. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of trouble they get into in the game!”

The Sims 2 Pets will build on the celebrated The Sims 2 experience that allows players to create and control characters throughout their life while determining the outcome of their relationships and adventures. The addition of a new furry friend is guaranteed to enrich the daily lives of your Sims! Not only will players have the opportunity to choose from a variety of existing cat and dog breeds and hottest designer mixes, but they’ll also be able to personally design their new friend with the Create-a-Pet feature. The ability to customise gives fans the opportunity to create their ideal pet by choosing their body shape, unique markings, even their pet’s personalities! As in real life, your Sims’ pet will benefit from care and training. A neglected cat with an urge to scratch might claw up your new couch if you aren’t careful, and leaving your dog unattended near a freshly planted flower bed probably isn’t wise! Be sure to expect the unexpected!

The Sims 2 Pets will be available on October 17, 2006 on the PS2, GameCube and as a PC expansion pack that builds on the original The Sims 2 PC game experience. Versions for the PSP, GBA and Nintendo DS systems will follow in late October and November.
