Battlefield 3 pre-orders hit close to 3 million 

EA has announced that pre-orders for Battlefield 3 hit close to the 3 million mark when it went on sale, today in the US. It's unknown at present whether these figures are worldwide or just for the US. EA will report its Q2 results this coming Thursday, and while the fiscal report won't include sales figures for the shooter, the firm may provide a more solid figure for the pre-order sector. Just last week, the firm said pre-orders were at "around 2 million," and back in early September, EA CFO Eric Brown said the figure stood at around 1.25 million. BF3 is out today in the US and hits the UK Friday.
