Battlefield 3 Sells 5 Million In First Week, EA Says

The Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3 internet fight is on, and Battlefield 3 has landed the first blow, selling 5 million copies in its first week on shelves, according to internal EA estimates.

They’re calling that the biggest launch in EA history, and it’s no small amount, but it’s also no Call of Duty, as 5 million is roughly the amount of copies Black Ops sold on its first day of release.

Still, that’s a good effort.The question now becomes: will that affect Modern Warfare 3?I can’t wait to find out next week.

CoD is like the McDonald’s of gaming. Just because everyone buys it doesn’t mean its actually good.
