North American pre-order numbers for DICE’s Battlefield 3 have hit an all time high. As of today, the total number is over 696,934, which is just three hundred thousand pre-orders shy of one million. Additionally, this figure only encompasses pre-orders for console versions of the game. PC pre-order numbers are not clear at this time, but that detail will likely be clear very soon.
The PlayStation 3 version of the game is currently the tenth most pre-ordered game in the country. With two and a half months remaining before the game’s release, orders definitely have time to get even bigger. Battlefield 3 will be available on HD consoles and the PC on October 25th.
