Force Unleashed PS3, Xbox 360 Pre-orders Surge Post-Demo

Yesterday’s LucasArts release of a playable demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 has resulted in a surge of pre-order sales at online retailer

As of this morning, Force Unleashed moved into the top 10 for Playstation 3 pre-orders (view complete list), all the way up to the number four spot. Only Madden NFL 09, Grand Theft Auto IV (newly discounted to $48.99) and Metal Gear Solid 4 are selling at a brisker pace.

On the Xbox 360 side, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and Madden NFL 09 are the only games ahead of Force Unleashed (view complete list). In fact, Force Unleashed is outselling Too Human (read our review) and Gears of War pre-orders at this time.
