If the game is a worldwide release, it normally releases on a Tuesday. Special cases are on a Friday.
Some games are even released on a Wednesday: see Uncharted 3.
In Japan, Dragon Quest games are always released on a Saturday to avoid truancy due to the game being very, very popular.
Uncharted 3 came out on Tuesday in the US...I'm referring to the first day that any game releases to any country is on a Tuesday or a Friday, and are the most COMMON days (96% of the time). Sure, it can change, but Skyrim was put to 11-11-11 because it's just cool. That's why they did that!
