Those numbers will most likely increase when people get their hands on the beta.

I haven't preordered BF3 yet myself and whether or not I actually do preorder will depend on the beta.

evrfighter2537d ago

this number is going to spike up considerably. I myself and nobody I know have pre-ordered it but it's day 1 for all of us.

You and your friends should preorder a copy, because you get the Karkland multiplayer maps for free if you do, otherwise you'll have to pay for them or miss out on them later on.

Gamestop might give it to them free if they go pick it up the same day it drops but then again they might be run my douches the main reason i had to preorder mine early. I guess being an asshole is more of a disease than a phrase these days

I pre-ordered the second Gamespot had the SKU in their system.

I don't doubt DICE or the BF name.
