Battlefield 3 - Sells 8 Million Copies

Electronic Arts has revealed the number of sales of Battlefield 3 which reached the eight million mark. As a comparison, Modern Warfare 3 sold 6.5 million units on its first day.

Battlefield 3 has lost against Modern Warfare 3

This information was given by Eric Brown, the Chief Financial Officer of Electronic Arts, during the Baird Technology Conference in San Francisco yesterday. Twelve million units were sold to the retailers but 'only' eight million were sold so far. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was sold 6.5 million times the first 24 hours only in UK and US so the real numbers are way higher due to sales in the rest of Europe and Asia.
The release of Battlefield 3 was EA's most successful release ever so they can be very happy about this number of sales although they've lost to Modern Warfare. I personally have seen that coming.

I got BF3 on release and I could care less about it now, back to BC1 and GT5 for me.

Sales doesn't equal quality. I think there are people who prefer BF3 to MW3.
