DICE has announced announced that the Battlefield: Bad Company™ 2 army is already 3.5M people strong – and the game hasn’t even shipped yet. Available for a limited time, the demo* will expire in six short days so players interested in getting an early taste of the action should download it before February 25th. After that date, the DICE servers will shut down, and shift to support the game launch on March 2nd. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is winning accolades from fans and critics worldwide for the finesse of its online multiplayer experience and dedicated server support. The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 demo is available on Xbox LIVE™ and the PlayStation® Network for free. The only question I have about this is can DICE convert these free downloads into as many sales of the actual game, only time will tell.
