Despite experiencing more than a few teething problems with its servers, Battlefield 3 has managed to bust records, selling a staggering five million copies in its first week on sale. That's units actually sold rather than shipped, pushing the series units sold up to a total of 50 million since its inception in 2002.

"From Tokyo to Los Angeles, Sydney to London, millions of fans have been playing all weekend long - we are overwhelmed by the global response to Battlefield 3," said Patrick Soderlund , Executive VP of the EA Games Label. "It is extremely gratifying to deliver an entertainment experience that delights our fans, and to have the opportunity to introduce new people to the franchise. Already, we are seeing unprecedented play times and online activity which is very rewarding. This launch solidifies Battlefield as a leading entertainment brand."

Battlefield 3 has been busy online too, with fans executing 73 million saviour kills, 48 million revives and 67 million vehicles destroyed. We rather liked Battlefield 3... If you want to find out what we scored it, you'll have to read our definitive review here.
