What record was shattered? Mists of Pandara reached a million concurrent connections in China alone.

"the previous record for a game operated by a Japanese company "

I guess that disqualifies Blizzard.

Read the article and find out :)
(the previous record for a game operated by a Japanese company was 150,000 during the open beta of A Realm Reborn)

How many NA users weren't logged in because of the congestion too?

You never struck me as one deficient in reading skills,

(the previous record for a game operated by a Japanese company was 150,000 during the open beta of A Realm Reborn), and Square Enix expects that the numbers will grow further and will reach 200,000 in the near future. It’s notable that a MMORPG overtaking just after launch the numbers of its free open beta is a quite spectacular result.

The big caveat for this is "concurrent connections" and "Japanese game."

1. WoW, with its thirteen million subscribers, probably has support for a million concurrent connections.

2. 75% of those connections are afk at any given time trying desperately to keep their spot on the server for when they get off work.

Edit: Bah, coworker stopped to talk to me while I was composing this. Fifteen minutes later and everyone has beat me to the punch.
