Since it was first released Battlefield 3 has enjoyed huge sales as gamers went out and snapped up the highly anticipated title. The sales figures have been revealed for the game across the various platforms, and the numbers make you wonder if PS3 owners are favoring MW3 over battlefield 3?
The sales figures for Battlefield 3 show that the amount sold for the Xbox 360 are almost double that for the PS3 version. According to Gamezone worldwide sales for the title on the Xbox 360 as of October 29th stood at 2,249,092, while the number of copies sold for the PS3 was 1,486,067.
Surprisingly sales of Battlefield 3 on the PC were pretty weak sitting at less than 500,000. For the week ending October 29th the amount of PC copies sold stood at 487,181 copies, obviously this was a few days ago now and may have changed since then. Another reason for low PC sales may be down to the hardware that is needed to properly run the game.
Since it was first launched the game has shifted an impressive amount of copies, but it could be affected by the imminent launch of MW3. There are many gamers who have stated they intend to get both titles regardless of the platform they use.
Battlefield 3 has certainly had its problems with its online servers that are finally being sorted, but many have said how much DICE have raised the bar with the multiplayer part of the game. Have you decided to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 instead of Battlefield 3?
