If there's one thing Mass Effect series fans want more than to play through the conclusion of the epic adventure game franchise, it's to play it early. EA is giving them that chance by launching the first copies of Mass Effect 3 in a very literal way — into space! Weather balloons will carry advance copies of the game up and away from Earth, before releasing them back down with attached GPS devices to track their planetary coordinates. New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Berlin, London, and Paris will be the cities targeted for landing, and you should be able to see where your nearest ME3 has arrived by checking out the Mass Effect website. Bioware is humorously referring to these space-raiding discs as the game's "Space Edition." The more conventional version will be available to buy in stores on March 6th, for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
