The Sims prepare for a sociable future

In an interview with the Times Online, Nancy Smith, head of EA’s Sims Division, has admitted that the monster PC franchise could become a multiplayer game.
She told the Times Online that EA “would continue to invest in more and more robust community features” for the Sims. She said that an online element to The Sims “could be of interest”, EA “would definitely think about it”, and “we’re constantly exploring new kinds of content and experiences”.
Smith maintained that The Sims would continue to be sold traditionally, as a boxed game, although EA would explore micropayments as a new revenue stream. Apparently, you will soon be able to buy Ikea furniture and H&M clothing for your virtual pet people.
