Battlefield 3 pre-orders up massively over BFBC2

Here’s a number: 700%. That’s by how much Battlefield 3‘s pre-orders are beating those of last year’s Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The figure comes from EA’s fourth quarter fiscal year 2011 report that’s been released today.

The report also reveals Bad Company 2‘s life-to-date sales: over 7 million copies.

Battlefield 3 launches this fall.
