MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic, is going to beta and they've already had over 1.5 million saber-hungry gamers sign up for a chance to be a part of the testing.
That to me is amazing. Decades after the Star Wars Saga took sci-fi by storm trooper (sorry, couldn't resist) it's still so wildly popular that a beta game can get that much attention right out of the starting gate.
While there's no disputing the fact that the Star Wars Franchise has a loyal, die-hard fan base, I still can't help but wonder if the draw is all SW fans or folks just want to get their hands on what's sure to be an awesome MMORPG experience first. My guess is it's a mix.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to The Old Republic' release? Did you sign up for an opportunity to beta test it?
