The Sims Social passes Farmville in user numbers

When averaged out over a month, the figures put Sims still ahead of Farmville, but behind CityVille and two other Zynga titles: social strategy-RPG Empires & Allies and Texas HoldEm Poker. The victory over FarmVille, arguably the most recognizable of Zynga's apps, confirms a positive launch month for EA's Facebook spinoff, which would seem a natural fit for the long-running Sims franchise. A strong correlation between daily and monthly users suggests that new players are sticking with the title beyond a one-time try, but it'll be a few months yet before we see whether EA will establish a lasting presence to rival Zynga's domination of the Facebook market.
