Aion Pre-Order Impresses in Digital Sales

Posted Wed, Sep 02, 2009 by Savanja

Aion hasn't even been released yet in North American and yet its sales numbers are already making top sales charts for digital download.

Incgamers.com reports that the Aion Collectors Edition pre-order as ranked #2 on Steam and #3 on Direct2Drive. Aion follows other popular pre-orders such as Champions Online and Fallen Earth as well as the smash hit PC game Left 4 Dead. The standard edition didn't make the lists as players seem to be finding the CE pre-order bonuses well worth the extra money.

You can catch the full top ten lists for digital download sites here.

What do you think? Is Aion making a big show of pre-sales only to lose momentum with after launch sales? Share your thoughts by clicking the "Post your comments" link below!
