Without feeding the troll, I have to say that, yeah, EA's whole claim to being the MW3 killer was always hot air. Different market, different game. Someone that player 2+ days worth of COD isn't rushing out to play BF3 for just as long.

BF3 is awesome though. Can't deny that.
does this include Digital Distribution sales?

No, sales never include digital unless they specifically state that.
I think you could add on probably 2-3 million PC download sales to that figure.

If not 3-4.
I'm happy for the devs and stuff but I still hate EA
It's an awesome game. Plus the devs actually listen to the community.

BTW, sales don't mean shit.
8 millions seems pretty poor for such a high profile game.
