The Force Unleashed: As If 5.7 Million Gamers Suddenly Cried Out In Ownership

LucasArts Star Wars spin-off The Force Unleashed was a Star Destroyer sized hit for the publisher, selling 5.7 million copies since its September launch, making it the fastest-selling Star Wars game in history.

That figure is according to a release from LucasFilm, which released Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on just about every platform one can rattle off, including PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PSP, Wii, Nintendo DS, iPhone, nGage and other mobile phones, a platform bombing strategy sure to have helped the game's chance. Moving 1.5 million copies in its first week gave it a pretty good head start.

We're betting that LucasFilm might have something good going here with this Star Wars stuff. I'm calling it now: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. Eh? Catchy, isn't it?
