Battlefield 3 Pre-Orders Keep Pace With Last Year's Black Ops
Have you pre-ordered BF3 yet? No? Well, many, many other people have.
While Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is bound to be the eventual sales winner - by a large margin - EA's Battlefield 3 is no slouch, especially in the pre-order department. According to GamesIndustry.biz, analyst firm Cowen & Company says pre-orders for the DICE-developed BF3 are actually on pace with that of last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops. Of course, Activision has already said pre-orders for Modern Warfare 3 were also ahead of Black Ops, so... That being said, the analysts have still raised the overall sales prediction for BF3: Cowen & Company now believes the game will sell between 8 and 11 million copies.
Did you realize that these two games could combine to sell 35 million copies before all is said and done? That's...absurd.
