Though "Black Friday" isn't until the day after Thanksgiving, November 20 was shaping up to be doomsday for gamers' wallets. The Tuesday will see Rock Band, Mass Effect, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, and Time Crisis 4 all hit store shelves the day after the PC Unreal Tournament III goes on sale.
However, today the November 20 herd was thinned by one. British publisher Eidos Interactive has announced that its anticipated crime-action game Kane & Lynch has gone gold and will ship six days early on November 14. The M-for-Mature-rated game will ship simultaneously for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
