After only one week on store shelves worldwide, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy has already established itself as one of 2006’s strongest forces in video games. Since its release by LucasArts and TT Games on September 12, the biggest family game of the year has sold more than 1.1 million copies spanning eight platforms (PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, Xbox 360™ and Xbox® video game systems from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube™, Windows, Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo Game Boy® Advance).
“There’s definitely something for everyone in LEGO Star Wars II, and the sales and reviews so far are proving it,” said Jim Ward, president of LucasArts. “This is the type of fun, accessible game everyone in the family can enjoy. It appeals to so much more than just the traditional gaming audience.”
