The Lure of the Dark Side

USA Today reports early indications that the dark side of The Force is strong with Star Wars: The Old Republic, BioWare's Star Wars MMORPG (thanks Ant via TheForce.Net). Here are some stats:

  • They prefer the Dark Side of the Force. Of the more than 3.8 million characters created, there are 550,000 Sith Warriors and 510,000 Jedi Knights.
  • They have logged 28 million in-game hours roughly equivalent to watching all six Star Wars movies, two million times.
  • They average more than five hours a day playing the game.
  • They have killed more than two billion non-player characters in the eight days since early game access began.

I've spent about five hours in it. So, far I think it's fairly boring. It's awesome that it's very polished but this thing is no WoW killer. And I gave up on WoW a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away. It's going to have to take a bit more... creativity to pull this MMO thong off.

Don't mind me though, I am sure Bioware will not have no problem being extremely successful and well into the future with this.

Though, if they add a major/major/major Freespace/Privateer element. I'd be subbed for life.
