The virtual life game sold more than a million copies in its first 10 days on the market, Electronic Arts said.
Leading game publisher Electronic Arts announced on Monday that "The Sims 2" sold more than a million copies in its first 10 days on the market, making it the fastest-selling PC game in the company's history. The new game is part of the best-selling PC game franchise ever, with more than 41 millions copies of "The Sims" and various expansion packs sold to date.
"The Sims 2" expands on the game's virtual life concept by giving characters more complex psychological and social dynamics, creator Will Wright told CNET News.com. "Their personalities are far more fleshed-out; they're really three-dimensional characters now," he said. "They have aspirations, memories, a much more detailed social landscape and knowledge of their social relationships with other Sims."
