1.1 mil pieces of Lego SW II sold

LucasArts' multiplatform Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy rakes in impressive sales since early-Septemeber release.

by

Both Lego building blocks and Star Wars films are big hits with the kids, so it makes sense that a game featuring both would be a big hit as well. LucasArts today announced that Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, which lets gamers play through the Lego-built universes of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, has sold 1.1 million units worldwide since its release on September 12.

Almost no gamer was left out, as The Original Trilogy blankets just about every platform. The tongue-in-cheek title was released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, PC, PlayStation Portable, DS, and Game Boy Advance.

The game is the sequel to the surprise 2005 hit Lego Star Wars, which greatly helped the financial fortunes of SCi Entertainment Plc, owner of the game's publisher, Eidos Interactive. After the original's success, LucasArts wisely opted to publish the game's sequel.

The success of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy falls into LucasArts' approach to the industry--make fewer games, but make each one count. Earlier this year, LucasArts vice president of product development Peter Hirschmann told GameSpot, "LucasArts is always only going to publish a certain number of titles a year. We want each one of them to be a home run..."

Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. For more information on the game, read GameSpot's review.

This just shows LucasArts that they should show a lot more love to the original trilogy and leave those trainwreck prequels alone.

I can't wait for the europe release... I loved the first one (even though it was based on three quite bad movies) and since I LOVE ep. IV, V and VI I guess this is a must buy... yeah, more LEGO action =)

Look how many platforms that game has been released on! I'm surprised they didn't release a Atari 2600 version. No wonder they have 1.1 million units sold. It would be more impressive if it was on a single platform.

Yea, I played both games at a friend's house, and I was struck by how entertaining they were. Maybe it was the nostalgic factor, or the charm, or something. In any case, I went to stores to grab SW Lego I (it was in the bargain bin) and when prices go down, I'll probably nab SW Lego II as well.

Not a big suprise. Original was a success. People need to know these games havent gotten good ratings, but as a game yeah they arent the greatest games alive. But they are fun and have great replayability
