The first line will be called Miniopolis Urbz, based on the GBA version of upcoming title The Urbz, and will ship alongside the game during early November. Meanwhile, console versions of the toy line will follow later in the holiday season "We're excited to be working with Atomic Toys on this new project," said Sinjin Bain, VP and Executive Producer.

The Urbz will ship later this year across the Xbox, PlayStation 2, GameCube, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS. Refer to our past reports for more on The Urbz. Interesting...

Yah know, I'm a sucker for video game toys, but I'm not sure about this.I am imagining these toys being figures of regular people. A Sim is not going to go well with my collection of Master Chief, Jet Bradley, and the Tron2.0 ICP. Also, my Quake 2 figures, if I could find the damned shotgun and grenade launcher pieces.

It is called a "simulation". For example Madden NFL 2005 is a simulation. The Sims is a simulation. The Legend of Zelda is NOT a simulation.
