Mass Effect 3- Aliens really do fall from the sky

BioWare and Electronic Arts have a treat in store for die hard Mass Effect fans. They will be launching copies of the game into space, well maybe just into the atmosphere, but either way it’s way cool. Starting Thursday, copies of the game will be launched via high altitude weather balloons from different locales around the world, starting at 7am Pacific time in San Francisco, then followed by Las Vegas, New York, London, Paris, and Berlin. Bioware’s marketing director for Mass Effect 3, David Silverman, said, “Depending on weather conditions, it could take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to land back on the ground and the landing site could be anywhere from 50 to 300 miles of where they are launched from.” So those not in the direct path of the launch site still have a chance of nabbing this awesome collectible. The launched games will be hooked up to GPS tracking and an HD camera, and the location of the games will be trackable on the Mass Effect website. You will need to register as a user in order to access the tracker, unless you already have an EA account. If you have ever played an EA game more than likely you have one already. The game tracking site will be live starting Wednesday morning. So get your tracking shoes on and be the first one to grab this game before the release date  on March 6th. Good luck! In the meantime, here’s the new extended trailer for the game. It looks so fantastic. I’m not sure if Shephard did do a butt clench to get that assault rifle to pop up, he is so much of a bad ass he can just think “come to me” and that thing can appear.
