EA just said Battlefield 1943 has become the fastest game to reach 1 million sales on Xbox Live Arcade.

The shooter, currently priced at $15, hit the target after being released in July 2009.

A promised PC version is still yet to materialise: this just-released PR says it’ll be available “soon”.

“The reception of Battlefield 1943 continues to amaze us, even months after the game was released,” said producer Gordon Van Dyke.

“Being the fastest game to reach this milestone is an incredible achievement. The game has set a new standard for what can be done in the downloadable games category. It’s fantastic to see how gamers have recognized the value that the game delivers for just $15. It is another great entry point into the Battlefield franchise.”
