The Sims 3 is nearly upon us.‚ In just a few short weeks PC sales charts will absolutely explode with what will likely be record-shattering figures for the latest iteration in the absolutely massive Sim franchise.
The Sims 3 launches interestingly on June 2, also the first day of the hotly hyped E3 2009 convention in Los Angeles and will likely be the talk of the show, at least initially.
However, Electronic Arts, publisher of the hit series, announced a three-fold free teaser experience today, but really doesn’t amount to much other than fueling the ole hype machine.
SimSideKick, SimSocial, and SimFriend launched today and all offer a uniquely imaginative way to interact with websites, individuals, and even begin a character and take your Sim through a day in the life (of a Sim).
The best widget in my opinion is SimSideKick which allows you to select one of six Sims with varying personalities and wheel them around to every website you venture to.‚ What’s better is that your Sim will dance and react in different ways given the specific URL.‚ For instance on Twitter your Sim will be encircled by tweeting bluebirds.‚ Cute huh?
This is what your favorite website, BlastMagazine.com looks like with the SideKick widget applied.
Head on over to TheSims3.com for more info and to start using the three interactive applets, they’re at least something to hopefully hold you over until June.
