Play Skyrim Three Hours Early?

GameZone notes there is currently some confusion about how global the 11.11.11 release date will be for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the upcoming RPG sequel. They quote Bethesda's Pete Hines saying: "All of the steam countdown clocks are currently wrong," and that the game's the Steam release "will be local time." Apparently this is not as completely local as that, as he says this means: "one (release time) for oz, one for UK/Europe, one for US (EST is planned)," and when asked "did you just announce 9pm PST on 11/10?" Hines responded, "that's what we are working on." So it's possible those on the west coast of the U.S. will get the game at 9:00 pm on November 10th. Thanks Acleacius.

Whether it's midnight Eastern time or 9PM Pacific Time, it's the same damn time... nobody's getting the game earlier. (That being said, for PC gamers, gone are the days of physical releases where midnight meant midnight local time, and the people in the East got the game three hours sooner than the people on the West Coast...)
