well this is clearly fake, for one why would best buy put up a sign where the month of a release date is misspelled unless you want every one 2 think you have a bunch of uneducated 16 year olds running your store... come on now, maybe try a little harder next time?

well actually, as far as that misspell goes, its actually possible.
shops dont do those posters themselves, they are actually ordered from a place who is specialized into making those. and grammar mistakes can actually happen sometime.

ive worked for many shops before and ive seen it happen, other posters before me said the same thing too

Best buy is doing this to increase foot traffic and buzz. The majority of mortar stores make their money when people make purchases they don't intend to prior to entering the store. Best buy loses nothing by putting this up as they aren't beholden to that date.

This is merely a marketing campaign designed to increase their stores pull ability.

You'd expect them to at least be able to properly align the text they misspelled...

Gamestop online only says release is early 2012. "Coming Early 2012"!

I wouldn't believe it unless blizz said something. I'm not going to get any hopes up over it.

That glare is convenient


Well if you really want to know this fake date.. the counter at the bottom says 25:03:16:14 which would mean 25 days, 3 hours, 16 minutes, 14 seconds. You do the math.
