The Sims 3 Has Best-Selling PC Launch In EA HistoryRegardless of your feelings towards the dollhouse of gaming that is The Sims, you have to tip your hat to Will Wright and EA for producing the best-selling PC game of all time (I certainly do, because I’m actually a big fan of the series). Well, the franchise has helped EA make even more history this past week, thanks to the release of the highly anticipated The Sims 3.

EA reports that the third official installment (not counting add-ons and expansion packs) produced the best-selling PC launch in EA’s history by selling over 1.4 million PC/Mac units in its first week of release. And if that wasn’t enough Sims domination for you, EA also touted the iPhone version of The Sims 3 for being the top paid app on the Apple’s App Store since it was launched two weeks ago. EA Mobile’s vice president of worldwide publishing, Adam Sussman, also pointed out that The Sims 3 is EA's third $10 (at launch) app to reach number one on the Top Paid app list.

It seems that it's a good time to be a Sims fan, but an especially terrible time to be a Sim. With so many people playing the new game on multiple platforms, that means more and more Sims being tortured and humiliated by their cruel human creators. Poor little fellas.
