Slightly old news by now, but Age of Conan is number one on the PC games sales charts. It’s even beating out GTA4 in some markets, which is pretty remarkable but possibly not all that surprising for Europe.
Now, some of this is mere puff-piece, but one interesting bit is that the standard edition of Age of Conan seems to be sold out in at least some areas. So it seems that the very large initial shipping number of 700K is needing to be backed up with fresh copies. This doesn’t mean that all 700K of the initial run are in the hands of customers, but it looks like about 500K of that is, and more copies are needing to be pressed to supply the sold-out markets. The caveat that we don’t yet know how many of these people will still be paying for a subscription in 30 or 90 days shouldn’t have to be said, but I will say it anyway, as I’m feeling like a bit of a Conan apologist at this point.
Now, can we get a NA RP-PvE server please?
