The Sims 3 Sells 1.4 Million During Week One

Was there ever any doubt that The Sims 3 would be a smashing success? If so, sweep away those doubts, because the Electronic Arts published game is now "the best-selling PC launch in EA's history."

According to official word from EA, The Sims 3 has already moved 1.4 million copies of the PC and Mac version since its June 2nd release. And we're talking actual sell through, not dirty, rampant pirating! Real money is being spent on The Sims 3, even on the iPhone version, which has remained the top selling paid app on iTunes since its launch.

If you'd like to be handed another official number, try this one on for size: 7 million. That's the number of player created items for The Sims 3 that have been downloaded since launch. I predict expansion packs!
