Electronic Arts announced today that they will be working with pop star Katy Perry on an "integrated and exciting collaboration" between her and The Sims. Perry, a Sims fan herself, will be featured in advertising and marketing for the best-selling game franchise, and in-game fashions, hairstyles, backgrounds, and accessories featuring the singer's unique style will also be available.

Said Perry:

"I love how you're able to play out different stories through your Sims characters - giving them different careers and watching them succeed. It's cool to see the Sims' stage performances in The Sims 3 Showtime decked out just like my California Dreams Tour — even my cotton candy video screens are in there! I always like to think of myself as a cartoon, and now I'm a Sim!"

Her collaboration with EA starts with The Sims™ 3 Showtime Katy Perry Collector's Edition, now available for pre-order. This edition include various Perry-related downloadable items including fashions, a guitar, a hairstyle, stage props, and an exclusive poster. Read More...

Behold the ultimate combination of Portal fandom and holiday cheer:

Ryan Kelly chats with io9 about the displaced (but no less festive) Christmas tree he made with his co-workers this year (no, they don't all work at Aperture Science). He also gives details on how it was made, just in case you'd like to make your own next year! Kelly's secret? Using an artificial tree that handily breaks into multiple pieces.

I'm not sure if this very fancy-looking dress worn by the wife of Rovio's Peter Vesterbacka is the height of pop-culture chic, really obvious product-placement, a sign she really loves her hubby and supports his business, or all three:

The event was the President of Finland's Independence Day bash, and wildly-successful Finnish game developers Rovio must be a source of national pride. While this is not the first item of Angry Birds-inspired women's apparel I've seen, it is certainly the most elegant and subtle(ish). Can an American off-the-rack knockoff be far behind?
