Battlefield 3 Pre-Orders Roughly On Par With Black Ops

It says a lot about a franchise that is really taking the fight to the Call of Duty franchise, and perhaps a lot about disillusionment with the Call of Duty brand – It also says plenty about Battlefield’s brand penetration among less ‘core’ gamers. People are seemingly well aware of Battlefield 3 and aware of the hype surrounding it.
