Digitally pre-purchase Battlefield 3 through Best Buy, pre-load the game today

Friday, 21st October 2011 15:23 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Folks that pre-order Battlefield 3 through Best Buy can pre-load the shooter today. You’ll need to have Origin installed to do so. At midnight on October 25, Best Buy will provide customers with a code to unlock the game. Offering digital pre-orders is a move by the box retailer to counteract flat year-over-year revenues for the second quarter of its current fiscal year, which saw a decline in game’s sold. Thanks, Gamasutra.

    I believe if you bought it through Origin you’ll be able to preload it soon as well. Can’t remember the exact date… I got it from retail :D
