DICE has announced that Battlefield 1943 has become the fastest game to reach one million units sold on Xbox LIVE Arcade.

"The reception of Battlefield 1943 continues to amaze us, even months after the game was released," said Gordon Van Dyke, Producer on Battlefield 1943. "Being the fastest game to reach this milestone is an incredible achievement. The game has set a new standard for what can be done in the downloadable games category. It's fantastic to see how gamers have recognised the value that the game delivers for just $15. It is another great entry point into the Battlefield franchise."

Battlefield 1943 is now available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 MS Points or on PlayStation Network for $15. DICE has also said that the game will be available "soon" for PC.

I can't comment on XBLA specifically but I would have thought this had sold more than a million. Wonder what the PS3 total is...

Either way I'm surprised there hasn't been any DLC thus far. It's a fantastic game and one of the best drop in/ out shooters I've played.

Maybe the DLC issues stem from a pricing aspect rather than actually creating the content itself. So many DLC offerings (such as the MW2 update) fetch what 1943 costs for the game itself. Assuming DICE could deliver content that was actually worthwhile like more maps and/ or game modes as an example, they would be forced to charge next to nothing for it. That is of course unless they create content worthy of a price tag around $10. They'd essentially be adding another game to the game. 1943.5?

They should definately try to release the European maps from BF1942, the maps in this game aren't that good even though the game itself is great.

I would like to see some downloadable content for it with new maps, weapons and achievements.

Picked this up when it was on special @ 560MS Points. Adore it if there is one game that has stood up to the test of time this is it. Fantastic game and unsurprising news.
