"Sales numbers and words do not a strong MMO make, mmmhmm."
Star Wars Galaxies producer Julio Torres talks with Gamecloud about the current status of SWG and the coming expansion. Do a million units sold equal a large and strong playerbase, as Torres proports? Hmm, I still have a copy somewhere I think, and I'm large and relatively strong I suppose.
" Gamecloud - First, what can you tell us about the current status of Star Wars Galaxies in terms of player population?
Julio Torres - Well, you may have heard that Star Wars Galaxies recently passed the 1 million units-sold mark, which is a testament to our large and very strong player base. We are very proud of this milestone and feel that it really drives home the message that Star Wars Galaxies continues to grow, both in number of players and content."
I can't fault Gamecloud for letting that one go and moving to the next question, it's hard to do decent investigative interviewing over email. If you get too harsh, the answers don't come back! Anyway, see the rest of the Star Wars Galaxies: Trials of Obi-Wan interview with Julio Torres here!
