PlayStation 1 Version:

Released in 1996 by Maxis, SimCity 2000 on PlayStation is a direct port from the Saturn version, but some features were omitted, such as the building progression. However, a stripped down version of Streets of SimCity is built into this version exclusively. While you cant drive, you can watch as the NPC drives the car for you. It is rendered in full 3D.

This game was later ported to PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation Vita via PSone Classics. It costs only 5.99.   As of April 25th 2013, the game was removed from the Japanese PlayStation Network for unknown reasons. 1
