KoTOR Selling Lots Of Copies

LucasArts’ Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, a new role-playing game for the Xbox, has flown off store shelves at light speed in its first two weeks of availability, selling more than 270,000 units. The game, which debuted July 16, set a new record for Xbox game sales, selling through its initial allocation in its first four days of release. In addition to record sales, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has received unprecedented critical acclaim. According to GameRankings.com, the game’s reviews have thus far averaged 94.8%, making it the 16th best-rated game of all time, the second best game on Xbox to date, and the highest-rated RPG of all time across all platforms. "LucasArts is extremely happy that fans and media have reacted in such an overwhelmingly positive way to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic," says Simon Jeffery, president of LucasArts. "The game clearly has conquered the North American market and we’re certain it will perform just as well when it launches in overseas territories in the next few weeks." "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is the first role-playing game for the Xbox platform to be connected with such a huge and successful license and we’re certain it will drive a great deal of volume going through the holiday season," says Robbie Bach, senior vice president home and chief Xbox officer. "The game is off to the fastest start of any Xbox title." "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is already the best selling Xbox title of the year," says Pete Roithmayr, vice president of merchandising/video games at EB Games. "The game has exceeded every expectation we’ve had and we’re very confident the strong sales trend will continue. It is certain to be one of the best selling Xbox games in the platform’s history. Simply put, LucasArts has produced another great game and it is obvious that Xbox owners know it!" "We’re truly honored by the overwhelmingly positive response to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic from fans and press in the Xbox community, and we’re working very hard on the PC version of the game to bring a high quality experience to the millions of fans of previous BioWare PC RPGs," says Dr. Ray Muzyka, joint chief executive officer of BioWare and co-executive producer of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. "We’re extremely pleased with the enthusiastic fan reaction to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic," says Dr. Greg Zeschuk, joint chief executive officer of BioWare and co-executive producer of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. "It validates both BioWare’s commitment to quality and the enormous amount of hard work invested by the passionate and dedicated development team." Developed by BioWare, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic features an original story set some 4,000 years prior to the timeframe of the Star Wars films in an era dominated by an epic conflict between the Jedi and the evil Sith.
