Hi all... does anyone know if there's such a thing as a SimCity for Playstation 3? Me, I know nothing about video games... I just want to get my nephew this for Christmas.

Thanks!

Shawn,
Console is Play Station, or Xbox, or Nintendo, really any specific computer dedicated to just playing games is a Console, typically something that you connect to your TV vs a Monitor.

Play station 3 games are specific to Play Station 3 where as you could buy a windows PC game for any brand.. Like dell, hp, IBM, or just a homegrown machine.

Your best bet for finding Play Station specific games is using either this site:
http://www.gamestop.com/

Or physically going to one of there locations:

If you are interested in a game that requires you to think, develop, or design, i would suggest getting the console version of Minecraft..
