According to Electronic Arts, the beautiful first-person-shooter Battlefield 3 has sold a whopping 8 million copies. The game sold 5 million copies during its first week on sale, so the increase in sales is promising for the franchise. Of course this number still pales in comparison to Battlefield 3's biggest competitor, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which sold 6.5 million copies in its first 24 hours of being on sale.

Additionally, EA went on to say that they've now shipped 12 million copies of the game compared to the 10 million they shipped during the game's first week of release. But they didn't give a breakdown of sales per platform, so I ask you my dear fragger, which system do you think BF3 sold the most copies on? Personally, I played it on the PC.
