NOTE: The giveaway has ended. Thanks to EA and all of those who participated. We will notify the winner as soon as possible.

The Sims FreePlay is celebrating its birthday, and at one year old, it's growing darn fast. EA's The Sims franchise continues to make waves on PCs and consoles. Though, in the tough mobile game industry, it's often that a game explodes with popularity and the buzz quickly settles. The Sims FreePlay seems to have bucked that trend.

EA has been able to keep momentum with a full-fledged, ever-expanding Sims experience on iOS and Android. The Sims FreePlay has managed to be charmingly similar to previous games in The Sims series by engaging players with constant updates, like the upcoming Holiday update you can read about here in our exclusive interview. To celebrate, EA is giving away a limited edition iPod Touch to one lucky reader. Check out how you can win below:
