Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the fourth entry in the Sly Cooper series of platformers is already being sold in many stores in the US despite the fact that it isn’t due for release until tomorrow.
This is the second time in the last fort night that a game has had its street date broken. Last week Canadian retailer EB Games released Fire Emblem: Awakening (due out today) at least 3 days before it was due for release. Coincidentally both games are not due for European release for another two months.
With its broken street date there are already Let’s Plays for the game appearing on youtube. It’s unknown if the publisher will take action against guilty retailers but, you can (assuming you live in the United States) go out and purchase a copy now, alternatively you can wait until the official release tomorrow and download it via PSN. The retail copy of the game comes with a code for a free download of the vita version. This follows the recent trend of giving vita copies of games available on both Vita and PS3 away for free.
