Despite the fact that Max Payne 3's official release date is May 18, all EB and JB Hi-Fi stores are now selling the game today, a day early.
Last night we received a tip stating that EB had sent out text messages to customers with pre-orders, inviting them to pick up their copy of the game on May 17, despite the official release date of May 18.
We made a quick call round to a number of local stores, and everyone was happy to inform us that, yes, they are selling Max Payne 3.
We made a quick call to Rockstar Australia, who confirmed the official release date is still May 18, so we're not too sure what's going on at the moment but, bottom line, everyone is now selling Max Payne 3 a day early. So if you want a copy, go and get it!
