The lights are on
Europeans have a thirst for simulations that may seem a bit odd to American sensibilities. Browse shelves in a games store overseas, and you'll find a surprising number of bus sims, ski resort-management sims, and tractor sims. They've traditionally been on PC, but Focus Home Interactive is changing that with a new version of Farming Simulator.
Focus says that Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players will be able to farm their way through all the content featured in Farming Simulator 2013 in the upcoming release. Additionally, the console versions include special North America-inspired farms to tame. The game includes vehicles and tools from real--world brands, and a complete career mode.
It's great to see that Farming Simulator is putting its way to both North America and consoles. Look for it this September.
