During its recent conference call, Electronic Arts' bragged that the preorders for MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic from BioWare were the most in the company's history through the first five days.

EA Games' boss Frank Gibeau said that the closest competitor was Battlefield 3, whose own preorder numbers are 10 times that of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. EA and BioWare are currently offering early access to The Old Republic for those that pre-order one of the versions of the game.

Although EA hopes to bring the game out this year, there still is no official release date for the game or for the early access period.
