Then NPD stats are in for the month of June and the winner, hands down, is The Sims 3. The Electronic Arts PC title moved 820,000 units in the U. S. for the reporting month. The Sims titles garnered the top three sales spots with The Sims 3 Collector’s Edition, and The Sims 2 Deluxe placing 2nd and 3rd.
The Sims 3 is the most recent addition to the EA’s popular franchise. The Sims is a “life simulation” game developed mostly for the PC, though there have been a few console releases. It was originally created by Will Wright and based in part on his previous game SimCity.
