Anyone want to go globe-trekking for an early copy of Mass Effect 3?
Since EA couldn’t get the clearance to launch giant billboards into space for Mass Effect 3 (I think people were afraid they would affect the Earth’s gravatational pull or something), they went with the next best thing: attach early copies of the game to 6 weather balloons and launch them around the world.
Its true that weather balloons could literally touch the frozen, spacey atmosphere of the Earth, which seems fitting for a game set in the distant future. These balloons will be set off from Paris, London, Berlin, New York, San Francisco and Las Vegas. And because of a little thing call physics those ballons will all be landing back on terra firma somewhere sooner or later.
All copies of the game will be attached to GPS tracking devices, making this basically the most insane geospotting game ever. Get out your GPS navigators and Indy hats, its time to go on an adventure!
