It's bound to be one of the year's biggest releases, and it might have a solidified release date…should you choose to believe retailers.
While Amazon and other major sources still have the December 31, 2011 placeholder date for Mass Effect 3 , it seems two retailers (in different regions, mind you), have a more specific date: November 10. According to TheGameReviews , UK retailer Game says the next BioWare gem will be ready to go in November. That's a little more specific than the vague "holiday 2011" estimate the title officially holds. Intrigued by this, we contacted several local GameStops and found out that ME3 now has a November 10, 2011 launch date. That sounds plenty believable – even if it falls on a Thursday rather than a Tuesday – and it fits in nicely with that "holiday 2011" label. If true, PlayStation 3 owners have 9 days to complete Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception , which arrives on November 1. …gotta have a working schedule for the fall, you know.
So anyway, maybe we'll hear an official announcement this week. If we do, yet another blockbuster has a fixed 2011 date, so save your cash.
