Battlefield 3 Released on October 25th, and among the stiff competition, sold just under two million copies at retail. These two million units that are tracked by the NPD Group, don’t include digital downloads via Origin. So data collectors anticipate that the game sold many more copies than the study suggests.
Batman: Arkham City, NBA 2K12, RAGE, and Just Dance 3 also did well in October rounding out the top five selling games in the New Physical Retail releases.
Analysts predict that the strong sales will continue into November with Call of Duty, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Zelda: Skyward Sword, and other popular titles still to come.
