EA announced last week that over 10 million copies of Battlefield 3 had been shipped to retailers but for obvious reasons, they didn’t announce how many had actually been sold.
Now that the first week of sales are in the books, EA have come out and boasted 5 million copies sold at retail. According to EA, that number makes Battlefield 3 the fastest selling gaming in the publisher’s history.
While there is very little doubt in anyone’s mind that Modern Warefare 3 will easily topple those numbers when it launches next week, it will be interesting to see if sales do take a small dip compared to last year’s iteration.
