For all the horrible feedback the Battlefield 3 beta received througout the community, it didn’t do much to deter sales according to EA. In its first week worldwide, Battlefield 3 sold through 5 millions units according to internal estimates. Now of course that means it could have or couldn’t have but best estimates are that it did.
“From Tokyo to Los Angeles, Sydney to London, millions of fans have been playing all weekend long — we are overwhelmed by the global response to Battlefield 3,” said Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President of the EA Games Label. “It is extremely gratifying to deliver an entertainment experience that delights our fans, and to have the opportunity to introduce new people to the franchise. Already, we are seeing unprecedented play times and online activity which is very rewarding. This launch solidifies Battlefield as a leading entertainment brand.”
Have you played it? What did you think? I’m still of the opinion that it just won’t matter when Modern Warfare 3 launches. I expect MW3 to shatter just about every launch record this year if not of all time. Mark my words on that.
