In addition several console versions have been released.
The Sims 2 is offered on mobile platforms, with manufacturers such as Nokia offering The Sims 2 from the Ovi Store. There are both residential and community lots, but Sims can only live in residential lots.
Clicking the "Create a Sim" icon will generate a random adult Sim, who may be male or female which can be edited by the player.
As opposed to The Sims, any age besides baby or young adult (which must be made in the University Create a Student) may be created.
Teen Sims will become young adults once they are moved to a University, and will be adults once they leave campus, regardless of the reason.
