Sure, the game has its share of problems. But they're problems EA say are down to overwhelming popularity, and you know what? It looks like they're right.
The game has already been played by over 80,000 people in a single day, and that's just going off the Xbox Live leaderboards. With the game now rolling out on PlayStation 3, and a PC version to come, this could (surprisingly) be one of the biggest online games of the year.
For reference, Bionic Commando Rearmed was hailed as a downloadable megahit after moving 100,000 in a week.
