Sims 3 Makes Sales History!
According to CNet, The Sims 3 sold 1.4 million units following the June 2nd release. That makes The Sims 3 the most impressive launch of a PC game in EA’s history.
We all knew that The Sims 3 was going to rock and I’m sure that EA was just a bit concerned by the news of torrents being available prior to the game’s launch and what effect that might have on sales. But, all that doesn’t seem to have affected the sales one little bit.
If The Sims 3 sold this many games in one week, imagine just how many units will be sold during the remainder of the year. Heck, Christmas isn’t even here yet and you and I both know that there are a lot of Simmers out there who have The Sims 3 on their list for Santa.
Big things [and sales] are coming for EA with this most recent addition to the Sims stable. And from what I’ve seen thus far [I haven't gotten much farther than the Create-a-Sim screen] all of the hype and big sales numbers are totally justified.
If you haven’t gotten your copy of The Sims 3 just yet, you might want to get on that. You don’t know what you’re missing.
