According to EA, Battlefield 3 garnered 3 million pre-orders by the day of its release. It is unknown at present whether these figures are worldwide or just for the US. The pre-order total makes it “the biggest first-person shooter launch in EA history”, according to the publisher. The engine is beautiful on the PC and very demanding of the partnering hardware.
A great game to play and it runs exceptionally well on all the high end AMD hardware. The overclocked card helps push another 3-4 frames in our test environment.
