EA ANNOUNCES THE SIMS 2 APARTMENT LIFE EXPANSION PACK

GUILDFORD, UK— August 7, 2008— Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced the international line-up of artists who are set to rock on The Sims™ 2 Apartment Life Expansion Pack soundtrack. Hit groups such as Good Charlotte and hot newcomer Katy Perry add flavour to the adventure, fun and drama of close quarters of apartment living. International pop stars also sizzle on the soundtrack including Vanilla Sky from Italy, Ranetki Girls from Russia and Lola, a Hungarian pop star gaining fame and recognition across Europe as well as Artwerk artists Chromeo, Ladytron and Junkie XL. To top it all off, Australian singer and songwriter Gabriella Cilmi sings her hit debut title,“Sweet About Me.”

In The Sims 2 Apartment Life, excitement and surprise await your Sims as they move out of the suburbs and into a brand new busy apartment building! Set your Sims up in an artsy converted loft, swinging studio bachelor pad or posh penthouse with their own butler. Close quarters mean new opportunities or unexpected surprises. And now for the first time, there is the ability to control multiple households so that neighbouring Sims can live in happy harmony, or comical conflict. Your Sims can advance their career with the right social network, cope with domestic drama when roommates clash or find true love just down the hall!

The Sims 2 Apartment Life, the latest expansion pack is slated for launch on August 22 in European and Asia-Pacific regions and August 26 in North America.
