Digital Download is only a midnight release for PST

10 replies 417 views Edited Jun 11, 2013
I live in the US, in New York state. I preordered the game two weeks ago.

On the Playstation blog, it was confirmed that the digital download would be a day one midnight release

But when I check on the PSN Store, it says the game will be available to download at 12:01 PST

"Please come back to the Playstation Store on PS3 any time after 12:01am (PST) on June 14th, 2013 to download your game and access the bonus Sight & Sounds Pack..."

So that's 3:01 for us on the East Coast. I'm setting my phone alarm. Downloading 12GBs is going to take five hours for me. Rather have to downloading while I'm sleeping...

That's lame....and this is what Sony needs to correct on PSN pronto - LIVE doesn;t do that to their gamers. Buying a PS4 but that is NOT Convenient at all

It'll be faster too since it won't be during peak hours.

Its auto download I believe. Sony will send you a message on psn to set a reminder to download it. At least that's what I've read online

Don't have PS+ unfortunately. Auto-download would be nice in a situation like this

So the game is only 12 GB of memory? So that will take about 6 hours to download. I am sure there will a heavy load that night!

 

Thanks,

It's 24-26 GB but the digital download comes with a special installer that lets you start playing when it's 50% downloaded

Neil from Naughty Dog said that the download will be 26 GB (give or take, most likely give). With that you will not need double the space to download, just 26 GB free space. He also said that the game itself will be released on their servers which would promote faster download speeds (yay!).

And yes at 50% the game will be playable; however, I do not know what it does to the quality or if the game will continue to download.

Hope that helps :smileyvery-happy:
