EA's Battlefield 3 takes top spot

EA's Battlefield 3 takes top spot31 October 2011 14:46:46

Electronic Art's first-person shooter Battlefield 3 was the biggest-selling game in the UK last week.

The launch week figures for the title show that it was the tenth biggest debut in history in terms of the number of copies sold and ninth-highest grossing first week ever.

Part of the publicity for the launch saw a number of heavily armoured tanks invade London to take people to work.

"We wanted to launch Battlefield 3 in style and are looking forward to ferrying excited game fans and commuters around the city today," said Electronic Art's Tom Goldberger.

The game aims to replicate the violent intensity of current military engagements across the world and sees the gamer take command of a US Marine.

Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC owners can take part in the action.

Battlefield 3 replaces Warner Bros Interactive's Batman: Arkham City at the top of the UK Interactive Entertainment charts. ADNFCR-2752-ID-800781525-ADNFCR
