Analyst Group Expects Battlefield 3 To Sell Upwards 11 Million Copies

EA and DICE’s Battlefield will sell about 11 million copies across all platforms if analyst firm Cowen and Company’s to be believed, moving up its projections from 8 million.

The reason is because EA’s advertising the game to human beings, dogs and cats and everything in-between. According to Cowen and Company, the results have been encouraging, bringing the game’s pre-order numbers on par with last year’s bestselling entertainment launch of all time, Black Ops.

It’s all interesting stuff. But like I’ve already said, pre-order numbers will mean nothing when the games go on sale at retail, where most of the copies are sold. We’ll be keeping a close tab on this. It’ll make for great discussions here on GT.

    cats and dogs….. now that ould be interesting!
    dammit, now im not going to be able to sleep tonight!
    i would not be surprised if it sells better then that, allot of people are forgetting BF has always been a really popular series.
    ended knocking MoH off the throne so if anything can knock COD off the trone, its this!
