Battlefield 3 pre-orders stand at 1.25 million

Some publishers would be floored to have a game sell a million units and reach the coveted platinum status. Over a month away from release, Electronic Arts’ shooter baby Battlefield 3 has already achieved that status.

According to a Gamasutra report, company CFO Eric Brown said Battlefield 3 has scored a whopping 1.25 million pre-orders, and is pacing much stronger than its predecessor.

“To date we have about 1.25 million preorders on Battlefield 3, so it’s still well ahead of its predecessor title, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, in regards to preorders in the same number of weeks till launch. So it’s doing very well,” Brown said.

Battlefield 3 is due out next month. Who’s excited?
