The Sims exceeds one million sales

New milestone for world's best-selling game

Electronics Arts' The Sims, the best-selling game of all time, has now sold more than 100 million copies, according to Joystiq.

The brainchild of industry icon Will Wright, The Sims has been translated into more than 20 languages since its launch in 2000 and spawned dozens of expansion packs. The Sims 3 is set for release in 2009.

"Right now our players are keen to playing an expansion pack that focuses on living in a big city...other ideas I've seen in the community include a rave/party pack and science fiction pack," said The Sims brand studio head Rod Humble.
