Electronic Arts has released a “Quarter in Review” infographic that shows off all the latest “numbers” in the EA gaming world. Included is The Sims Freeplay, which has surpassed 100 million installs this year.
While it’s nice to see that a Sims game makes it into EA’s “top” games list, it would be great if they released infographics like this for individual games. I’d love to see crunchy numbers for The Sims(PC) series.
Not long after EA transformed Origin into a digital only distributor, several Sims 3 games have been removed from the site. The Sims 3 “Plus” & “Deluxe” Games (Base + Expansions) are no longer available for purchase through Origin. In addition to those games, The Sims Medieval and Pirates & Nobles Expansion has also been removed. (Only the Deluxe Edition remains)
It is not clear if EA has just decided to randomly purge these games from their inventory, or if they have discontinued/retired these titles completely. Back in August of 2013, The Sims 3 Katy Perry packs were officially retired, but I believe that had more to do with contractual agreements than purging.
Although these games can no longer be purchased on Origin.com, they can be found at a variety of retailers. Check your local retailers for availability.
EA has confirmed to IGN that their E3 press conference will be held at Shrine Auditorium on Monday, June 9 2014. The EA press conference will begin at 12 p.m. Pacific, and as always, we will be hosting the event live here on SimsVIP.
The 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo will take place June 10th to June 12th, and it is assumed that The Sims 4 will be present this time around. Additionally, EA is hosting an E3 All Access Pass Sweepstakes, so head over there to enter for a chance to win! (US Residents Only)
