On The Galaxies Launch

Quiet Birth for Star Wars World is a Wired article discussing what they seem to feel is a low-key launch for this MMORPG (thanks Mike Martinez). Meanwhile, there are other ways of describing the game's birth as quiet, as problems folks have been having with sign-ups are detailed in a forum post by LucasArts' Kevin O'Hara (thanks HomeLAN Fed). There is also an announcement about this from Raph Koster saying Launch day will not count against your subscription (we can also get a wry update on the topic from The Iraqi Information Minister - thanks Hump). Finally, the intro movie for the Star Wars MMOG has been released, and is available for download from FilePlanet (registration required), FileShack (registration required), Gamer's Hell and Worthplaying.

Ok was it my luck that I downloaded the intro from Gamer's Hell and for 2+ mins all I got was a nice image of the SW logo with music and other noises playing in the background?
