EA & DICE talk BF3 beta stats

Written by David Stellmack

Impressive numbers if they translate to sales

Electronic Arts and DICE have announced some of the stats surrounding the Battlefield 3 open beta. The stats are impressive; and if they translate into the kind of sales numbers that the beta points toward, both EA and DICE should be pretty darned pleased.

Over 8 million players played the beta across all three platforms. Over 47 billion shots were fired during the beta. The 8 million players were able to achieve 1.5 billion kills during the beta, including one player recording a headshot of 635.6 meters.

According to what we have heard EA is close to 3 million pre-orders for Battlefield 3 right out of the gate, which is a good start for the game. With the release now just a week away, we will just have to see how well EA is able to do with Battlefield 3; we think it is going to be successful, but it is really just a question of how successful.

8 million people? That is pretty impressive. But some of those people probably just tried it because it's free, not necessarily going to buy the final game. Some people are also dumb enough to think all the glitches aren't going to be fixed, and therefor don't buy the game. But BF3 will definitely have great sales numbers. May not outsell MW3, but it will be the better game.

47billion shots resulting in 1.5billion kills is an accuracy rate of just 3.19%

Practice ppl, practice!

Can someone track that guy down? I want to b*tch-slap him for camping in the deployment and not playing the objective.
