Not content with storming to the top of the UK Charts and becoming the seventh number one of the year, EA’s Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has also become the fastest selling title of the year to date.
In doing so it steals that crown from this year’s previous fastest sellers – Aliens vs Predator (which, incidentally, is also Sega’s fastest selling game ever) and, previous to that, 2K Games’ BioShock 2.
It’s also the biggest ever release in the history of the UK Charts for a game released this early in the year.
In addition, BFBC2 has outpaced the week-one sales of its predecessor, Battlefield: Bad Company, by a ratio of three-to-one.
53 per cent of the game’s sales went to the Xbox 360 SKU, with PS3 claiming 31 per cent and the PC 16 per cent, topping all three of the individual charts in the process.
