Farming Simulator isn't nearly nerdy enough, and that's the last criticism I expected to make of this console version of the ironically championed budget PC series. It's got the word "simulator" in the title - nerdiness should come as standard.
There are obvious flaws here, many of which have been made infamous thanks to hilarious (and unsafe for work) YouTube videos. Farming Simulator's cut-price production values don't so much poke through as parade around, stark naked, inviting you to ogle their wobbly bits.
There are two maps on which to simulate your farming. One is set in what sounds like Germany but could well be a generic theme park version of any rustic European backwater town, while the other - added for the console edition - is a rootin' tootin' American map.
Ian needs a bit of a calm down after yesterday's live stream of horror game Outlast, and what could be more relaxing than a spot of tractor driving and animal husbandry?
Trough what you're doing and listen: Farming Simulator arrives on PS3 and Xbox 360 in UK shops on 6th September.
Farming Simulator, the farming simulator, is coming out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in the first week of September, and this is the trailer.
For the console version a new American backdrop has been added to the European environment that PC players will know well. This doubles the size of the gameplay area, developer Giants Software said.
It's inspired by typical America farms, and includes new locations and bigger fields.
Quack open the champagne and farmer orderly line, Farming Simulator's console debut on PS3 and Xbox 360 has a release date. You should probably book that "first week of September" off work.
Mooooooove over, Call of Duty - the mighty Farming Simulator is coming to console.
Throw Call of Duty in the bin! Move aside, Diablo 3, budge it, Battlefield and make way for The Simulator.
