The Sims 3 sold 1.4 million in its first week, selling 1.1 million in 2 weeks doesn't look good in comparison. I hope that's word of mouth hurting it, rather than just a lack of interest.
I doubt they expected as much as the sims initially. That appeals to a much wider audience with many many more copies sold.

Yes I know they are attempting to appeal to much of the same demographic with the dumbing down of the game, so they probably consider 1+ mil sales somewhat a success.

Dude, have you seen all those commercials with the Workaholics guy. I barely watch TV and I've seen it a hundred times.

This game had a huge TV push. This game was supposed to sell at least twice what it did.
Music for the discerning:
