EDIT: They won't. Oh well. :(
Anyhow, on with some more interesting news: thanks to user Serafer and EBGames.ca, another interesting tidbit of info has leaked out. Aion's preorder might become available on or near May 29th at retailers worldwide! Whether this factoid's true or not is, of course, debatable until NCsoft itself makes an official statement next week. I wonder if they're taking Monday off?
EDIT: To be honest, though, I think this is just when EBGames.ca plans on revealing their special preorder deal. I doubt any actual preorder boxes will be available. May 29th is most likely the date NCsoft plans on releasing the information they've been hinting at. It's also probably the date they told retailers to post the preorder for sale...but GameStop doesn't seem to like playing by the rules, do they? Then again, it could be one of those silly "exclusives" NCsoft gives to videogame industry giants. :p
