A lot of people downloaded the Bad Company 2 demo

According to Electronic Arts, the multiplayer demo for DICE’s Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is “on pace” to becoming fastest downloaded demo in the publisher’s history.

The publisher says that the demo has been downloaded over 2 million times between the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 within the first five days of being available. EA is more vague about the PC beta, which it says has “met great success.”

Patrick Bach, Senior Producer on the title says the popularity of the demo is “proof positive that action gamers are looking for more.” Whether or not it will translate to mega-sales come March 2 (when the game hits retail) remains to be seen. 

In case you don’t know how to play Bad Company 2 (or videogames), EA has provided a “demo tutorial” video, which you can view above to get started.

From what I can gather, people are loving the demo (which ends on February 25) — what do you guys think so far?
