    Little lower sales than I thought it would be, still great, but I figured 2-3 million, from what everyone was saying.

     

    Hope they reinvest it and get some of the not at launch content rolling.

    It's a good figure to say the least.

    It's on par with the sane predictions on these forums, so not surprisingly low or high.

    Now they have to face the average player that plays the content once and decides wheter to subscribe or not. With retention rate of 50% they are at 800k that is a huge success.

    Again, VG Charts does not include digital orders or order outside the US.  SO the number may be almost double that.

    Digital sales are not counted so i would say above 2 million easily which is very very impressive for a MMORPG. Congrats Bioware.

     It had European numbers on the list, and it kicked in like a 200k extrapolation for other parts unknown...So it isn't just U.S., as for digital...no clue.

    The only time it is US only is the preorder charts. On their actual post launch sales charts it's world wide.

    Congrats to Bioware. I love my family more than anything, but Not since Eq1 Kunark+ days have I felt like playing a game instead of hanging out with family sometimes. I know bad, but I'm having a great time. I'm not naieve enought to know that the frist few milestones (1st month, 3rd month, 6th and the year mark) are going to really show how successful SWTOR is.

    Anyone have an idea how accurate in general VGChartz estimates are?


    From the chart I can't see whether 1 week implies pre-orders + launch or the number are 1 week from launch with no pre-orders.

    If the worst 60 bucks you ever spent was on a game, you need to get out more.

    Depends really.  Some of their stuff has been shown to be accurate while other has been shown to be wild speculation in the past.  I would say this is fairly close though.

    Hmm...seems like another place that "guesses" how many copies are sold, think I'll wait for the official EA/Bioware results.

    Hrm...dunno. It is the first time I see this site but because there is no information how those numbers were obtained and what they actually represent(my previous post), they do not seem to be very reliable...

    The only reason I find it odd is because they stated they were staggering and holding back copies for launch and close to 2 million out of the gate is not staggering your launch.

  • obiiobii Member UncommonPosts: 790

    Depends, as 2 Million is the least I expected them to sell.

    It is Star Wars and Bioware!

     Seriously. There's a girl in Chicago I'd like you to meet. She has a taste for champagne cocktails. Don't try to take her home her boyfriend would object, violently. I expect they sold over two million total digital and box copies.

    I'm please for EA and Bioware if this tuirns out to be accurate and though I really like the game, you could me a fanbois, actually just do it. But leaving that all aside I feel its good for the industry that finally we might see some competition in the marketplace all we need now is TSW and GW2 to succeed and you'll see more variety hit the market in the future and finally the sanboxers might finally STFU......... only kidding guys.......
