I've developed a serious problem over the last two weeks. I'm normally the sort of gamer who can sit down and have fun just picking any old title out of the stack. I have my favorites, sure, but I appreciate having a varied gaming diet. Star Wars: The Old Republic has completely destroyed that, as it probably has for many of you.
The number certainly support it, as we learn today with the release of a set of stats and figures on the game's official website. Collectively, we've poured more than 60 million hours into The Old Republic, which is apparently the rough equivalent of watching all six Star Wars movies 4 million times. It also seems that folks are more into being Sith than Jedi Knights, with more than 850,000 embracing the Dark Side vs. 810,000 fighting among the Republic's Jedi.
As for the rest of it: together, we've all completed a total of 260 million quests, participated in 44 million PvP battles, fought in nine million space combat missions and killed a whopping *three billion* NPCs. In the words of a certain Sith Lord, most impressive.
