Mass Effect 3 Enters Space Via Weather Balloon, Comes Crashing Down To Gamers

EA will be releasing balloons in New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Berlin, London, and Paris. Hopefully they'll all converge over my house where I can collect them and ship copies out to everyone who reads GR.

Ah, see?! You thought I was going to get selfish there huh! I'm off to calibrate the weather balloons.
