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

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.
