The Sims 3 lets players make their own movies

If locking your Sims in doorless rooms with little more company than a hot stove just doesn't seem like enough content for a game, then know that EA is upping the ante in The Sims 3. Instead of subjecting your Sims to your cruel whims just for the fun of it, you can now turn your dastardly behavior into actual machinima, courtesy of an included movie tool set. The editing process features effects like swipes, fades, and even soundtracks, so you can use The Sims for your next Linkin Park video or whatever you're up to these days.

The Sims 3 is slated for a PC release on June 2, 2009.
