Release dates for some key holiday season titles have started to roll in today. First up is Mirror’s Edge, which DICE and EA have pegged for a November 11th launch date. That’s for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions only, however. For whatever reason the PC version is lagging behind its console brethren and won’t ship until sometime “later in the winter,” which could be this holiday season or even early next year (GameStop says January 6th, if you trust their dates).

Sometime between now and November 11th, EA will release a playable demo for players the world over to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace or PlayStation Store. The demo will feature the game’s prologue/tutorial and a portion of the single-player story mode. Should you pre-order the game any time after September 26th you’ll also receive a special code to unlock a Time Trial mode… in the demo. Yeah, that’s one lame pre-order bonus. Why would anyone care to unlock an extra mode in a demo? But hey, it’s all good. Pre-order at GameStop and you’ll get a sweet runner bag to go with the useless code.

“Mirror’s Edge is bringing something new to the action-adventure genre this holiday by putting the player in the shoes of the hero, seeing what she sees, feeling what she feels,” says Owen O’Brien, Senior Producer, DICE. “We wanted to create an entirely new experience, with a different type of heroine and a world that not only looks fresh and new but has unique gameplay.”
