Force Unleashed racks up 1.5 million sales

High demand forces LucasArts to manufacture additional copies

LucasArts has revealed that the latest Star Wars title - The Force Unleashed - has sold 1.5 million copies worldwide in its first five days on sale across all platforms.

The title was released on September 16 in North America, September 17 in Australia and South-East Asia, and September 19 in Europe, and the strong demand so far has prompted the publisher to order more copies to be manufactured.

4.3 million units were initially shipped to the various territories, but now the game looks set to become the most popular Star Wars title to date.

"The record-setting sales of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed shows the undiminished power of Star Wars and its popularity across all media types, including videogames," said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts. "We're blown away by the response to the game."
