The Sims 3 is headed to consoles. And handhelds. What's surprising here isn't the fact the game is making the move, but why it's taken so long.

The game is listed as part of EA's financial results report from earlier today, with the placeholder title "The Sims 3 on Console Title". Catchy. It's scheduled for a Q3 release.

EA say the game will be appearing on both console and handheld, so if you want t speculate that means 360, PS3, Wii, DS & PSP, don't let us keep you.
