Gaming In Space!

I know I’ve already talked about Mass Effect 3 a lot, but I can’t help mentioning BioWare’s latest news stunt. BioWare announced last week that they are going to be launching several copies of Mass Effect 3 into space. Yes, you heard right. Space. The final frontier, and all that. They will be sending them off on weather balloons, and then we will be able to track the games via GPS tracking on their website, with the hopes of recovering them when they land back on Earth. Not only will several lucky individuals get a free copy, but the games are predicted to land a week before the official launch. I was hoping there would be one soaring over San Diego, but unfortunately, they say that the games are going to be over New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Berlin, London, and Paris. This is by far the craziest stunt by a game developer I’ve ever heard of, and I have a suspicion that once recovered, these games are going to go for quite a large sum on eBay. So if you live in one of those areas, watch your head! You just might be the recipient of the first video game from space!
