Battlefield 1943 sells over 600,000

Sets records too complicated for headline.

DICE and EA have announced that Battlefield 1943 is the fastest-selling day one and week one downloadable game worldwide in Xbox Live history, and has taken the same accolade on PlayStation Network in North America.

That amounts to more than 600,000 copies sold, apparently. BF1943 costs 1200 Microsoft Points (£10.20 / €14.40) on Live and £9.99 / €12.99 on PSN.

What's more, players of both versions of the game have long since hit the requisite 43 million kills that unlock the fourth map, Coral Sea. Xbox 360 owners managed this in five days, while PS3 fans were only a few days slower, doing so in eight.

Announcing the record-busting numbers, the developer/publisher duo also reminded us that players whose trial versions expired are able to get another 30 minutes of play on both systems as of last weekend.

Check out our Battlefield 1943 review to see what all the fuss is about.
