The Sims 3 Sells Big

EA announces The Sims 3 is their most successful PC launch ever:

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 9, 2009 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced that the hotly anticipated The Sims™ 3, stormed retail shelves starting June 2nd and sold thru more than 1.4 million PC/Mac units within the first week making it the best-selling PC launch in EA’s history. Fan intensity is evidenced through the more than 7 million downloads of player created content including: Sims, houses, stories and more. The Sims 3, also available for download from the Apple App Store for iPhone™ and iPod® touch, shot up to #1 paid app position on launch day and has maintained that spot since launch.

I think you can download the other town and keep a copy or put it on a USB pen and copy it to a standalone machine.

You can easily just download it to multiple machines. Did that with my home game system and my laptop.

As for CTD's, on my Acer Aspire laptop with Windows 7 it runs flawlessly. No crashes, no hickups, nothing. Smooth as silk.

I haven't played it, been too busy replaying Fallout 3, but my wife's got some serious hours logged on it and she loves it. She says that a ton of the annoyances of the first two have been removed and as a result there's just more GAME there than micromanaging. The few times I've looked at her play it seems a lot of fun. There's a ton of different lifetime wishes for your Sims, and some of them are really funny, both in what they are and how you can achieve them.

I think content wise it's probably a LITTLE lacking, but since everyone can now create new stuff without any problems, there's already like a million new pieces of clothing released by the community, so I doubt that's really a problem.

All in all, as much as I hate EA, I have to say that they really got it right with Sims 3.
