Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic, BioWare’s venture into the MMO world, has had a very successful start since its launch this past December.  It has sold over 2 million copies with over 1.7 million active subscribers (interesting math).  Part of the success of The Old Republic are its service; as it’s servers have been up 99.5% of the time outside of scheduled maintenance.  The community for the game has reached the following milestones in a little over a month: Over 239 million in-game hours clocked, over 20 billion NPCs killed, and over 148 billion credits spent.  BioWare hopes to keep up this momentum with its regular updates, the next one being set for Spring of this year.
