Battlefield 3 Sells 8 Million
After selling 5 million in the first week on shelves, Battlefield 3 has been rolling along at a not-terrible pace, as sales are now up to 8 million. That’s what EA SFO Eric Brown said at the Baird Tech Conference in SF this week.
That’s a pretty good number, but it’s obvious that Modern Warfare 3 has cut into BF3′s numbers. Still, 8 million is nothing to sneeze at, and they can be perfectly happy with that number. It’s something to build on in the future, for sure. They’ll just try to keep on chipping away with future shooter releases.
