Aliens: Colonial Marines is officially due out in two days, but what good is a street date if you can't break it? While it wasn't the first to bust the date, EB Games has announced via social media that the game can now be purchased from the retailer, ahead of its scheduled release.
Here's the appropriate post on EB's Facebook page:

EB's Twitter account mentioned the street date was "broken by a competitor" first, in reply to Leigh Harris of MCV Pacific. The competitor's name wasn't mentioned, so if you know who it was, leave a comment!
