I wasn't sure this idea was going to come to fruition, but it seems to be true: Not only is the movie based on the Sims video games a go, but a producer for the movie explained the concept for the film.
Apparently some kids get a "Sims Infinity Pack," and their actions in the Sim-world actually start happening. It could be somewhat interesting to see a thought that happens to most geeks play out on screen, but on the other hand, I might get confused watching the Sims and not being able to control anything. (What! They have conditioned me to control!) What do you think?
