Sims 3 pirated 180,000 times in four days

 According to media measurement group BigChampagne, Sim 3 has been illegally download over 180,000 times between May 18 (the day the game hit the Torrentscape) and May 21.

A  EA PR rep named Holly Rockwood, responded to the downloads by explaining, “the pirated version is a buggy, pre-final build of the game,” and that, “it’s not the full game. Half the world — an entire city — is missing from the pirated copy.” Based on the image seen below  (sent in by an anonymous pirate), we don’t think Rockwood is bluffing either. Sim 3 will hit store shelves June 2.
