SimCity for PS3?

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!

No, SimCity is PC only.. It always has been.. The Sims is available on console.

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..
