Battlefield 1943 is XBLA's fastest-seller

Over one million customers now served. 

EA and DICE have revealed that Battlefield 1943 has become the fastest game on Xbox Live Arcade to sell over one million units.

The game was released in July 2009 and is also available on the PlayStation Network. A PC version is also planned, but there's still no word on a release date.

"The reception of Battlefield 1943 continues to amaze us, even months after the game was released," offered Gordon Van Dyke, producer on Battlefield 1943. "Being the fastest game to reach this milestone is an incredible achievement."

According to Van Dyke, Battlefield 1943 has "set a new standard" for downloadable games. "It's fantastic to see how gamers have recognised the value that the game delivers for just $15," he added.
