In its apparently ongoing bid for omnipresence, the Sims franchise is set to debut on the PSP next month, as Electronic Arts today announced that The Sims 2 has gone gold for Sony's handheld.

Already available on the PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, and mobile phones, The Sims 2 is set to ship for the PSP December 7. While it's built around the series' formula of balancing a simulated person's wants, needs, and motives, the PSP Sims 2 has a few exclusive features. The game is set in the unusual Sim city of Strangetown, and features five new neighborhoods and 20 locations built specifically for this edition of the game.

The Sims 2 for the PSP is rated T for Teen and retails for $49.99. For more information, check out GameSpot's hands-on preview.
