Released less than a year ago, Battlefield 1943 has hit the one million download mark on Xbox LIVE Arcade. This makes it the fastest game on to reach 1 million on XBLA. 

“The reception of Battlefield 1943 continues to amaze us, even months after the game was released,” says Gordon Van Dyke, Producer on Battlefield 1943. “Being the fastest game to reach this milestone is an incredible achievement. The game has set a new standard for what can be done in the downloadable games category. It’s fantastic to see how gamers have recognized the value that the game delivers for just $15. It is another great entry point into the Battlefield franchise.”

The download is still $15 (1200 Microsoft Points) for XBLA and PSN, and will soon be available for PC.
