Batman: Arkham City is on sale in Australia days before the intended shelf date. The game was originally planned to hit retail on Wednesday, however reports suggest that Big W - a K-Mart-like chain - released their copies early
As a result, other retailers - including EB Games, as confirmed by this tweet, GAME, and JB Hi-Fi - have followed suit, making Australia the first country in the world where the game is available (its US release date is tomorrow, local time).
A quick check with local retailers confirmed that the same is not happening here; the game will release nationwide on Friday as planned.
If you're hoping to avoid plot spoilers, we suggest staying off Twitter / Facebook / etc for a bit, lest our Aussie cobbers attempt to spoil our fun to make up for the Wallabies defeat at the weekend...
If anyone does spot a retailer breaking the street date, please send us a tip so we can chase it up and get the word out.
