    Battlefield 3 Shifts 8 Million Copies, Patch Incoming

    DICE has announced that a Battlefield 3 patch is set to hit Xbox 360 “shortly.” Adressessing a whole load of bugs, glitches and balancing issues, it’s the same patch that has been available for PC players of the game since last week. I’ve popped the full patch notes below
    Elsewhere in Battlefield 3 land, EA’s chief financial officer Eric Brown has announced that the military shooter has sold an impressive 8 million units. Speaking at the Baird Technology Conference (via GameInformer), Brown also revealed the publisher has shipped 12 million copies of the game.
    Apparently, 10 million units were shipped to retailers during the game’s first week on sale. During that period, 5 million copies were sold. That’s EA’s largest launch ever. Ever ever. Looks like all the smack talk payed off then.
