Hip Interactive has sent word that Playboy: The Mansion has shipped to retail outlets throughout North America, and is available for the PS2, Xbox, and PC.

Since the beginning of Playboy Magazine, I have looked for new ways to expand the Playboy experience, and video games are the next logical step,” said Playboy founder and editor-in-chief Hugh M. Hefner. “Playboy: The Mansion is a fascinating game, and it lets players step into my slippers, putting out the magazine and throwing the parties.”

Developed by Cyberlore Studios, "Playboy: The Mansion" is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and will debut at an MSRP of $49.95 for the PlayStation(R)2 and Xbox(R), and $39.95 for the PC.
