Why is it being released on Tuesday?

Not just with Halo 4 but with other games that come out. Why are they usually released on Tuesdays instead of the weekends?

Because, that’s just how it works.

Let me refer you to this thread

It’s on page 2. I hope that answers your question.

I’m wondering too

Well for america yes mostly.

Most games in the UK are usually/try to be released on a friday/ saturday.

Let me try to fix it. Waypoint is being slow today.

In the UK, most big releases release on Friday, with a few releasing on a Tuesday like CoD and Halo 4.
I always thought it makes most sense for it to be a Monday or a Friday, the latter because it gives the gamer time to play the game over the weekend and because it’s the end of the week (just makes sense to me, can’t have Sunday as most people don’t work that day).
Or you could have Monday because it’s the beginning of the week and new games could be a ‘new week’ kinda thing.
Dumb reasons I’ve given really but I always thought Friday was the best day.

Hopefully it works now.

If not, it’s on the first page of General Discussion that says Why 11-6? on page 2.

I’m fairly sure it has something to do with Tuesday being the best day to set records for first week sales.

Would you rather it be released later?
