The new Focus sedan is available for free download in numerous colors. Ford also provides players with items that go along with Focus as part of the Neon Nights package. The various virtual items to download with the car include a Ford T-shirt, high-end stereo and neon lights that can be incorporated into the Sims virtual world.

“Our involvement with The Sims 3 demonstrates how Ford is looking for alternate ways to talk to the consumer outside of print, television and radio,” said Brian McClary from Ford. “Gaming is a key area we are focusing on and The Sims has proved it can be an effective channel.”

The video game market is expected to grow from $51.7 billion in 2010 to $81.1 billion in 2016, according to the recently released Strategy Analytics Global Video Game Market Forecast. EA said the launch of The Sims 3 was its most successful ever, with 1.4 million copies sold in the first week alone.

The Fiesta was downloaded more than 200,000 times but the Mustang GT from The Sims 2 was been the most popular Ford, followed by the Escape Hybrid.
