Friday WAS the standard release day, and some games still come out on Fridays, but more come out on Tuesdays in the UK now than on Fridays.
There is no standard release day any more in the UK
The majority of games I order from shopto come on a Thursday as their release date is a Friday, on rare occasions I'll get a game on a monday for a tuesday release, friday releases are still more common than tuesdays.
