In Search of Conan

Just a quick update before I get back to playing Mario Party with Ashley and her gaggle of friends --

I want to play Conan. I really do. But stores here are sold out of the boxed version. Sold out. A PC game. No copies. I'll try again Tuesday before my basketball night.

Update: Just got this in my Inbox:

Funcom is proud to announce that Age of Conan is one of the fastest selling PC games of all time. More than 400,000 gamers have entered Hyboria over the last few days, with almost half coming from the North American market. This amazing figure for a PC game shows that the positive pre-order trend has transferred into actual sales, and people from all over the world are now flocking to the most savage, sexy and brutal MMO ever created.

Over the weekend an astounding amount of concurrent gamers were logged on to the game, making Age of Conan one of the busiest MMOs in the western hemisphere. With stock flying out of several retail chains, Funcom expects the number to increase in the days to come. In addition to the many gamers logging in, there was also substantial traffic to the Age of Conan websites, with more than 2,2 million unique visitors during the last ten days.


Holy Krom.
