So I was walking through Wal-mart today and I noticed a sign with a Fable III,  10.14.10 release date sign. At first I thought it was an error at my store but after doing research I found out that across Canada, Walmart stores have the 10.14.10 sign all over!

Not too sure if they have some exclusive deal with Lionhead to do this (as it's been rumoured) or what not but if it's true it looks like I'll be getting Fable III next Thursday!

Seems very unlikely. A lot of retailers would be pissed at MS if this happened.

I mean a lot retailers are taking preorders. They can't have Wal-Mart selling it early.

True, but it wouldn't be the first time a company breaks the street date on a game and it could very well be only in Canada (who know's, I guess I'll have an answer next Thursday)

Oh, Canada? I missed that. That's a tiny market.

I guess its possible. But I imagine Canadian retailers aren't happy about it.

Gonna have to disagree with you on that one, I mean in comparison to the U.S and Japan we are a small market, but I'd have to say we are in the top 5 easily. So technically it is a big thing :P

A few years ago a study said Canada had more gamers per capita then the US. Vancouver , BC , Canada also has more game developers per capita then anywhere else in the world. So Canada is definatly important to the gaming world. Yes we are a smaller market but we also have more gamers then most countries so were still very important. So important that Nintendo actually created a Nintendo of Canada to handle sales and distribution because it was too much for Nintendo Of America to deal with.

That being said I would still be suprised to see Walmart Canada getting a deal to break the street date.
