Battlefield 3 looks like it's going to be a hit for Electronic Arts, with the publisher saying that pre-order numbers are up more than ten times that of Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

So that's good news, but it wants more pre-orders. And how do you get people to pre-order? Well, first you offer them a "Limited Edition," which everyone who pre-orders the game will be "upgraded" to. It features the "Back to Karkand" downloadable content we previously told you about. You snooze on the "Limited Edition," you can buy that content for $14.99.

But on top of that, EA has brokered deals with various retailers (including itself for its Origin service), to offer exclusive incentives. You seeing anything that would have you choosing one retailer over another?
