EA and Bioware are truly using the force, since Star Wars: The Old Republic has already passed the 1 million mark, according to a press release issued by both companies. They claim that it’s the fastest MMO ever to reach the number.
I’ve seen loads of different Star Wars promos over the years, but this epic Star Wars battle is a pretty good one. To celebrate the official launch of BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic video game, EA set an army of Jedi and Sith loose on Times Square, lightsabers in hand.
One of the best games that I’ve played was Knights of the Old Republic. Hopefully, Bioware’s upcoming title, Star Wars: The Old Republic, will be something along the same lines (in a MMORPG way). Needless to say, if you’re gaming on your PC, you’ll need a nifty keyboard and mouse combo, which is why Razer is releasing their new Old Republic-themed peripherals.
Razer’s Old Republic keyboard is the real winner among the bunch, with its built-in multitouch track pad, and a cool color LCD screen underneath it.
For most of us, Alderaan is just that place that is so tragically destroyed in the first Star Wars movie–you know, the one that inspires ol’ Ben Kenobi to start talking about those millions of voices what were suddenly silenced.
