Star Wars: The Old Republic Sees Two Million Beta Testers

According to this report on Eurogamer, around two million people checked out the beta version of Star Wars: The Old Republic over the past couple of months, with that number including a staggering 725,000 gamers that logged in during Thanksgiving weekend alone.
The recent beta test for EA's forthcoming Star Wars MMO The Old Republic attracted two million volunteers, the publisher has announced.

CFO Eric Brown announced the figure at the annual Global Media and Communications Conference in New York earlier today, adding that 725,000 unique users logged on to the game over the Thanksgiving weekend, with each one logging an average of 12 hours each over a three day period.

Brown claimed that at the beta's peak there was "just over a quarter of a million" users playing at the same time.
