Yes, you read the headline correctly. According to IGN, 'Battlefield 3' sold 5 million copies during its first week in stores.
The number makes it the fastest selling game in EA history.
Now, while that number may blow your mind, check this stat. When it was released last year, 'Call of Duty: Black Ops' sold 5.6 million copies...in ONE DAY!
Along with the 5 million copies sold in the first week, 'Battlefield 3' has 2.5 million "likes" on Facebook and over 200,000 followers on Twitter.
