Shock and Awe: The Sims 3 Outsold All Other Games in June

Nathan Grayson

We don’t just mean PC games, either. Even console games couldn’t stand against the shockingly legal substance that is The Sims 3. And we’re talking retail sales here, too. That’s console turf! Guys in the audience, we’re sure you once told your younger sisters that playing with fake guns was way cooler than fiddling around with dolls. Well, based on the way The Sims 3 (820,000 copies sold) trounced console best-seller Prototype (419,000 copies sold), we’d say you were dead wrong .

The full PC game sales list is below:

  1. The Sims 3 (EA The Sims Studio, Electronic Arts)
  2. The Sims 3 Collector's Edition (EA The Sims Studio, Electronic Arts)
  3. The Sims 2 Double Deluxe (EA The Sims Studio, Electronic Arts)
  4. World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King (Blizzard Entertainment)
  5. World of Warcraft Battle Chest (Blizzard Entertainment)
  6. Spore: Galactic Adventures (Maxis, Electronic Arts)
  7. World of Warcraft (Blizzard Entertainment)
  8. Spore (Maxis, Electronic Arts)
  9. Empire: Total War (The Creative Assembly, Sega)
  10. StarCraft Battle Chest (Blizzard Entertainment)
  11. World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (Blizzard Entertainment)
  12. Reel Deal Slots Adventure (Phantom EFX)
  13. Civilization IV: Complete Edition (Firaxis Games, 2K Games)
  14. WarCraft III Battle Chest (Blizzard Entertainment)
  15. SimCity Box (Maxis, Electronic Arts)
  16. Diablo Battle Chest (Blizzard Entertainment)
  17. The Sims 2: Apartment Life (EA The Sims Studio, Electronic Arts)
  18. Prototype (Radical Entertainment, Activision)
  19. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion GOTY Edition (Bethesda Game Studios, Bethesda Softworks/2K Games)
  20. Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Terminal Reality, Atari)
Sickening, really. EA’s Simpire continues its conquest, and even Reel Deal Slots Adventure couldn’t stand in its way. So, how long do you think The Sims 3 will hold its position in the PC sales top ten? For brevity's sake, we'll take the liberty of adding a "billion" to whatever number of months you go with. As a conservative estimate, obviously.
