THE SIMS’ JUBILATIONS Electronic Arts gave a nod to Her Royal Highness The Queen last week with a special Jubilee celebration video made using The Sims 3.


The cheeky compilation shows Her Maj and the rest of the British public partying in the streets and in the parks, as well as a few cameos from other members of the Royal Family – such as a Prince Harry sim spraying

They insist that the devices are legally used to play homebrew games, read eBooks and listen to MP3s – pirated DS games are an unfortunate side-effect. We then point out that there are plenty of devices on the market that offer those functions, but don’twork with illegally downloaded Nintendo titles...
