THE BUZZ: BioWare has announced that participants in the recent Star Wars: The Old Republic beta test weekend logged over one million hours of play time.

Last weekend the developer invited tens of thousands of people to try the game in an on going stress-test of the game’s server capabilities. “One crazy number is we had over a million hours of testing over the weekend. It was a huge test, and there are even bigger ones coming. The key thing is for us to take those learnings, apply them and make the service really stable. We’re happy with the game,” Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of BioWare, told Eurogamer.

EGM’s TAKE: With an even bigger test planned for next weekend this number is certain to be shattered.
