SW:TOR Breaks EA Preorder Record

Swtor Logo

Electronic Arts had plenty to boast about during their preliminary financial results report for the first quarter of 2011. Since Battlefield 3 pre-order sales are up 10% over it’s predecessor. The company was bolstered by top performing games like Portal 2, Crysis 2, FIFA 11, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12.  What may have come as a big surprise for investors was news that Star Wars: The Old Republic broke the already high record set by Battlefield 3 for pre-orders. Within the first 24 hours of pre-orders going live, the $150 Collector’s Edition sold out at EA’s own store, Origin.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is an MMORPG developed by Bioware and LucasArts, slated to release for North America and Europe Holiday 2011

My first experience with video games were on an Atari 7800 playing Asteroids. Since then I've graduated to RPGs, FPS, adventure games, racers and more. I'm mostly on my PC and Steam but can also be found on the 360. I love epic battles and thought provoking story lines. If I can get both then that game is cherry I am an animation student that works freelance CS or matte artistry when needed.
