Gears of War 3 pre-orders beat MW3 and BF3

You cannot deny that Gears of War 3 is a highly anticipated title. The closed beta gave this game even more popularity as more and more people got their hands on the new installment of the series. According to sales data this game has about 800,000 pre-orders in US only, meaning that it is easily over a million of other countries were to be counted.

We will see if it can beat the titan Halo Reach with the 2.5 million copies pre-ordered back in 2010, which is currently the world record for most pre-orders. Interesting stats indeed.

Edit** - apparently, the statistics above are ONLY for the XBox 360 platform, omitting the PS3/PC pre-orders of BF3/MW3.

That's kind of surprising. Like above, thought bf3 would "win" the title.

800,000 pre-orders in the US. That's... a lot!
I never really liked any of those games, to be honest.

ZemZero, I think the stats are for XBox 360 platform, not including PS3/PC sales.
