In a Gamasutra-attended conference call, EA CEO John Riccitiello announced that the company's major first person shooter Battlefield 3 has shipped more than 10 million units since its launch earlier this week.

He also added that EA has already begun receiving reorders for the game to help replenish stock.

It's too early to get consumer sale numbers, "but sell through is strong," said Riccitiello.

DICE-developed Battlefield 3 launched October 25 across the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

For comparison, EA's previous Battlefield title, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, released in March 2011 and has shipped 11 million copies to date.

"This is the biggest one-day shipment the company has ever done," added
company COO Peter Moore, explaining that it was roughly double last
year's Medal of Honor.

Earlier this week, analysts predicted that Activision's Modern Warfare 3 will sell twice as much as this latest Battlefield title.

@wolfkin I think Batman Arkham city shiped 5 million worldwide and was the biggest hit in europe, so you get the idea.

 

This is very impressive, most AAA games rarely go over 2 million on the first week. If MW3 is to ship 20 million copies that should be enough to pay all company costs for the next 10 years lol

once day when i get back perma-online and I have a decent computer I'm going to demand videos of these glitches everyone is always finding. I played Fallout 3 for hours and never saw a glitch. To be fair the reason I stopped playing was a glitch that caused me to get lost but hours before that and nothing.

The only 'glitch' I encountered was when I was playing Operation Guillotine and there is a part where you move down the trench and take out the MG nests, and after I took out the first two suddenly all the npc's just vanished XD and I was like 'ummm ok, where to now?' but they'd reappear after I ran up the hill a bit, and they'd all come climbing over the wall.

 

Besides that, I've had no other problems on Single Player. Multi has only presented very few bugs for my roomy, where he couldn't arm the bomb when playing Rush, or when I'd revive him after a prolonged amount of time the scoreboard would stay stuck on his screen and he couldn't do anything to get rid of it.

 

Having a crap ton of fun though playing with friends.

I'm trying to remember the exact order but what basically happened was I was heading to the cruiseship and you're supposed to take the tunnels and go thru the sewer fight some super mutants and work your way thru. I think i quit half way and when I came back I had ported to the nearest zone.. which was the ship. but I had no idea how I got there so i had no idea how to get back to where I was and I'm 90% sure I couldn't get on the ship either so I'm just wandering around this area and I figured.. why not just stop playing anyway for now. The game is LONG and my life is not that together. I need time to do stuff can't be playing 4-6 hours a night and Fallout 3 isn't a game I want to play in 1/2 hour increments.

lol the PS3 doesn't cause script glitches. They are well known and many people have complained from all platforms. Such as your team mates not moving on to the next section or them walking through walls. Scripted explosions disappearing mid explosion and corps reappearing after they have been carried away.

I had to reload scenes just to get by some areas because my team wouldn't progress.

Also Sold 5 million first week
