Sim'sation Jessica Mauboy in The Sims 3

She's traveled the globe, sung alongside music superstars, and taken the world by storm with her chart-topping hits. Now, Australian pop sensation Jessica Mauboy is embarking on an entirely new adventure into the virtual world of The Sims™.

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) today announced that the multi-platinum selling Australian artist will form part of the robust music line-up for both The Sims 3 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, Wii™ and The Sims 3 Late Night Expansion Pack for PC/MAC®.

The Sims fans will be treated to an entirely new experience with a fun, new version of the upcoming single "Saturday Night"! Jessica Mauboy recorded "Saturday Night" in 'Simlish' - an entirely new language which is the official language of the hugely popular The Sims franchise.

Discussing her experience recording the 'Simlish' version of "Saturday Night," Jessica Mauboy said, "It was one of the funniest and most challenging things I've ever done. I practically had to learn an entirely new language! As a fan of the games, I've always wondered what the characters were saying, and now not only have I sung in 'Simlish', but my song is featured in the game - how cool is that?"

"As an artist, it's incredibly exciting to be involved with one of the most popular games in the world alongside such amazing global music talent. I can't wait for my fans to play the games while having a dance to "Saturday Night" - or should I say, 'Surbiduh Nye'!"

Jessica Mauboy joins a host of international artists who recorded current or upcoming hit singles from their latest albums in Simlish for The Sims 3 for consoles or The Sims 3 Late Night including Kelly Rowland, Kelis and Flo Rida.

"The Sims may be one of the biggest and best-known brands in popular culture today and for a major artist to be asked to re-record their music in 'Simlish' has become one of the most unique and exclusive opportunities in the world of entertainment," explained Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive, Music and Music Marketing, EA.

"Over the past decade, hundreds of artists - including superstars as diverse as Katy Perry, Flaming Lips, Depeche Mode, Nelly Furtado, and so many more - have all become a part of this global phenomenon. For more than a hundred million The Sims players and fans every day, we are truly providing the soundtrack to their lives."

The Sims 3 combines the freedom of open world life simulation where players can create Sims - the unique characters found in The Sims games - with distinct personalities and fulfill their desires...or not. With all-new features tailored for each platform including "Karma Powers", achievement-based gameplay, and a seamlessly integrated creation exchange on each of the HD platforms, players now have the opportunity to play with life like never before. The game will be connected to the worldwide community through a seamlessly integrated creation exchange on each of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 systems. Players can design, build, and share creations, or download content from other players around the world - and for the first time ever on the HD platforms - without ever leaving the game.

The Sims 3 Late Night for PC/MAC gives players all-access and lets them loose on a vibrant, active downtown scene where they'll rub elbows with celebrities at the hottest parties, hit the local bar after work, tour the scene with their Sims' band, kick back in a plush hot tub, and discover what's lurking in the thick of the night. Players will be able to take their Sims into the bustling urban setting where they'll be able to become a celebrity, member of a music band, mixologist, director and more. To gain entrance into the most elite clubs in town, players need to keep their attitude in check otherwise they'll be given the cold shoulder by tough bouncers or find another way onto the list. If chilling is the player's forte, their Sims can lounge at a chic club or dive bar. If they like to live on the edge, they can be initiated into the dark life of a vampire.

Jessica Mauboy's new album 'Get 'Em Girls' will be available in stores and online from Friday 5 November - featuring the single 'Get 'Em Girls' with Snoop Dogg and the original recording of 'Saturday Night' with Ludacris.
