You've seen the magazine ads, watched the TV commercials, and you've no doubt run across 47 ho-jillion previews for Burnout 3 across the web.

Well, true believers, Electronic Arts just sent us a note saying that they've shipped Burnout 3: Takedown to stores. Some stores should have it tonight (if you're lucky enough to live on one of the coasts and the shop uses Fed Ex), although most stores will be receiving their shipments tomorrow or Friday.

As a bonus, the PlayStation 2 version of Burnout 3 will include a playable demo of Need for Speed: Underground 2, which is highly anticipated and due for a November release.
