Fire Emblem: Awakening retail release reportedly delayed

Sad news for those of you who were planning to pick up a copy of Fire Emblem: Awakening today, as it seems that a number of retailers in the US aren't getting their shipments in until later this week. The game was scheduled to launch today in the US, but Game Informer has spoken to some Best Buy and GameStop stores that say they haven't received shipments yet. Just the same, it seems Amazon is warning potential purchasers of a possible shipping delay, so many players may not be getting Fire Emblem: Awakening today.

Best Buy drops price on all MacBook Air models for weekend promotion

We've got some good news for those who have been wanting a MacBook Air but find the higher price tag a little difficult to swallow, as Best Buy has discounted all MacBook Air models in a weekend promotion. All four MacBook Air models have seen their prices cut by $200, which should make an Air purchase a little more manageable for some folks. The only thing is that this promotion requires you to make your purchasing decisions quickly, because the deals are only good through Saturday (which is tomorrow, in case you've lost track of time).

White PS3 Slim destined for Canada according to Best Buy listing

White PS3 Slim destined for Canada according to Best Buy listing

We're getting some good news for our pals in Canada this evening, as Best Buy seems to think that Sony's white PS3 super slim will be launching in the country later this month. A new listing for the colored console has popped up on Best Buy's website, giving us details about its release date and price to boot. Since Best Buy probably wouldn't begin advertising a new console without advance notice from Sony, we feel okay saying that this is probably legitimate, but keep in mind that there hasn't been any official confirmation from Sony at this hour.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: December 7, 2012

Welcome to Friday evening everyone - the weekend is beginning for most of us, but before we dive in, let's recap the news from the day. Late this afternoon, we found out that Gameloft's full line up of games for 2013 had leaked, which is exciting to say the least. Unfortunately, all is not well in the gaming world, as BioShock Infinite has been pushed back yet again. This time it's been delayed into March, which means the wait for it has gotten longer by a month. We learned today that Best Buy will have to pay out $27 million to TechFoward for stolen trade secrets, which is not good for a company that has been struggling lately.
