Preordering a game on PSN question

8 replies 649 views Edited Sep 26, 2012

I was wondering if anyone can help, that has pre-ordered a game on the PSN in the past. I just found out MoH:WF is available for preorder and download day 1, but does PSN allow you to download it a day or two early and have the game locked until midnight of release day? Just like they do on Origin.

 

Because I can see download times at midnight of release day, going bonkers and really negating the whole reason to buy a digital copy in the first place.  I am guessing it will be a 10-12 GB DL and could just pick it up at a local store at midnight anyway.

I'm pretty sure the release is midnight, not before.

Some of the games will be a midnight release (we don't have the confirmed list yet, so I can't share it), but there's no way to "pre-load" games at this time like you're talking about. We've seen that feedback a lot though, so it's definitely something we're considering for the future!

Thanks for the answer, and I'm glad to hear you guys are keeping it in mind for future titles. Because I would definitely purchase digitally over going to a midnight release for a game. In fact it could be a great response to those who think digital versions should cost less than physical copies of the same title.

Sony SUCKS!!!! I used to be a die hard Playstation Fan, I have stood by them since the beginning but they just keep screwing you over.  With the bick hacking scare they went down, and yes they offered free credit services (which was only to help keep the risk of lawsuit down) but they never were communicative with their customers.  They don't tell us whats going on and its a sheer mystery when things will be back online.  Now they offer DAY1 Digital Preorders but not only do they not have the downloads available beforehand and have them locked until midnight of release day, they don't even have them available at midnight for download.  I know people have been getting off work so they can play their game and Sony doesn't even have it available on time.  By the time it is available for download it won't be finished downloading till the next day.  No my download speeds aren't slow infact when i picked up 15GB infamous 2 it only took 3 hours.  On top of the fact that they don't release on time.  I called up customer service to get a heads up on when the download would be unlocked and available and the rep honestly told me to keep checking every couple of hours because PSN keeps updating and she had no definitive time on the availability of the download.  It was like she was telling me that not only did i preorder the game expecting to hit download at midnight, pass out be ready to play when i woke up,  but got stuck staying up all night googling to try and find the answer, checking for downloadability every half hour all night. . . but she wants me to waste my whole day checking.  **bleep**!!!! Sony BLOWS!!!! they have no respect or consideration for us SUCKERS that have stood by them and supported them.  I'm going to design my own game system since the ones available now are all terrible.
