Skyrim Release Date

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I've read that it's expected to release on 11/11/11. This would be an epic day to release it since the date is sexts.

But being as it's also a Friday, I can't see this as being a date for release. Any game that I've seen released has always been released on a Tuesday.

Does anyone know or have a link to other dates besides the one given?

Well this is what I would think. If its released on a friday, alot of people get the weekend off work and school, So buying the game on a friday gives the buyer the whole weekend to play and enjoy the game and what not. Also, Alot of people I know get paid on a Thursday so I think getting paid, Then the next day buying this great game seems reasonable.

Then again, I think way differently then others

even tho a lot of releases are released on tuesdays, the 11 11 11 is a marketing stunt if you will, easy to remember date, looks clean in graphic design and thought, and at the end of the week =)

One year closer to death On the flip side, being older generally means you can upgrade your rig whenever you feel like it, instead of waiting for birthdays or Christmas!

On topic, I can't wait for Skyrim myself. It's been a while since I lost myself in a good fantasy RPG.
