EA mulls Sims-like interactive TV show

Source: Reuters

Electronic Arts, the world's biggest video game publisher, is considering an interactive TV show that would let viewers control the actions of the characters as in its popular game "The Sims".

"One idea could be that you're controlling a family, telling them when to go to the kitchen and when to go to the bedroom, and with this mechanism you have gamers all over the world 'playing the show'," said Jan Bolz, vice president of marketing and sales for EA Europe.

The proposed show, which might involve viewers voting on possible actions, is still in the early stages, but EA confirmed it is in talks with several TV production companies. Bolz declined to disclose any additional details.

A TV show would be a major cross-over into popular culture as EA and other video game creators attempt to shed the image of an industry that mostly makes products that target young men.

"The Sims" lets gamers control the lives of everyday characters in an elaborate virtual world, and has been particularly successful in reaching out to women, who have traditionally scorned video games. Women account for about 60 percent of the game's more than 36 million sales to date.   ...more at Reuters
