Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Sims! Happy Birthday to you!
The EA Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) announces the celebration of the ten year anniversary of The Sims™, the groundbreaking game that allowed players to create and live a virtual, simulated life on a computer. Since the original The Sims debut on February 4, 2000, the unstoppable, award-winning franchise has produced three core games – The Sims, The Sims 2, and The Sims 3 – supported by dozens of expansion and stuff packs with lifetime unit sales eclipsing 125 million worldwide. As the best-selling PC game* in nearly every major video game market worldwide, The Sims has continuously reset the bar over the past decade delivering new content, gameplay elements, platform support, and partnerships that resonate with its global fan base in meaningful ways and take the play experience to new levels of fun and entertainment.
It’s hard to believe that The Sims have been around for ten years, and right now it doesn’t look like there are any signs of it letting up.
