Our favourite tiny wastes of time no longer want $10 per month to take over our lives

Good news everyone! Well, everyone who is slavishly obsessed with playing God to a collection of miniature people. The SIMS online franchise has been revamped and refreshed and now also includes a free-to-play version.

Formerly, would-be deities had to pay ten dollars to feed their obsession, but a new, free version will give players the chance to meddle for gratis.

It's a kind of "Lite" version of the paid-for edition – which will still exist in revamped form – with less money and areas. But you can still upload and earn money from other players.

Also added is a Facebook avatar application, an iGoogle gadget and various custom widgetry.

Now, where did I leave my life...
