REDWOOD CITY, Calif., - March 6, 2007 - Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced The Sims™ 2 Seasons Simlish Contest, an online music competition that unites singing sensation Lily Allen, aspiring singers and video game players from around the world. This groundbreaking contest invites would-be superstars to record their own version of Lily Allen's hit single, "Smile," at EA's online music community, SingShot

Fans are expected to sing "Smile" in Simlish-the native language used by characters in The Sims™ games. For inspiration, contestants are encouraged to check out Lily's own Simlish version, which is included in The Sims™ 2 Seasons, the latest addition to the popular video game franchise, The Sims. They also can get feedback on their song from the SingShot community which allows users to share their recordings with friends, rate and comment on other members' tracks and customize recordings with photos and videos.

Lily Allen will personally choose from among the top three ranked songs to select the 1st and 2nd prize winners. The 1st prize winner will receive a prize package valued at approximately $1390 and the chance to record a song in Simlish for possible inclusion in a future The Sims™ 2 video game. "Recording 'Smile' in Simlish for The Sims 2 Seasons was a fun experience!" said Allen, offering up some advice to entrants, "Singing in Simlish encourages you to be creative and to indulge your sense of humor-two things I love doing in my music."
