So, we all love Star Wars, us nerds. We’re quite fond of it. Especially those who are like me, and gobble up any table scrap that kindly ol’ Lucas throws down to the floor. If that scrap is a demo for a new Star Wars game where I get to do whatever I want with The Force? Watch out.
Apparently, I’m not the only one with an XBox 360 who feels this way. It seems that in a rush of fanboy zeal, the Force Unleashed demo has broken records on Xbox Live.
Over a million downloads in just eight days following the release of the new LucasArts demo. That’s a lot of rabid, overjoyed geeks force choking and causing general mayhem with Darth Vader’s secret apprentice. All told, with PSN downloads and everything, we’re talking 2.3 million downloads worldwide.
Pretty nuts. How many of you guys checked out the demo? Are you planning on buying or renting the game when it drops next week, on September 16th?
