The Sims 3 Sales Set Record for EA

By Nick Breckon, Jun 09, 2009 3:49pm PDT Electronic Arts has made its expected declaration of Sims domination following last week's release of The Sims 3.
The company claims the PC/Mac game sold more than 1.4 million units at launch, making it EA's biggest launch on the PC to date.

EA also noted that over 7 million pieces of player-created content have been downloaded already. That's a lot of wallpaper.

  • I bought it. Great game, but I wish they had bigger fish tanks than the bowl. Oh well, I can buy one, I am sure, for $3.99 on the website.

    I read that some people enjoy the potential for sadism in this game. I have to admit that in the first Sims game, which was back when we were in college, my brother and I found it vastly amusing to get a married woman to fall in love with his character, and then to off her husband by "editing" the ladders out of the swimming pool when he was doing his morning laps. He drowns, we profit!

    Then we felt bad and reloaded. God, I can't even be evil in a GAME.
