Has anyone else checked the PSN US store? If you select gtav under the day one digital it still says that we can download at 12:01am pacific time not eastern. Shouldn't they have changed it by now?
I'm starting to think I won't be able to download until 3am :(

 

Wow, really?

 

Whatever. If it's not at midnight EST tonight I'm gonna download it first thing tomorrow morning, then when I come back from school I'll install it - do my homework while it's installing and play after it's done.   :evilgrin:

Does anyone know? This is crazy. You'd think Sony or Rockstar would provide a definite answer. Most anticipated game of the year, and I'd like to know if I can set it download and install before I go to sleep or if I'll have to wait tomorrow morning for a hour or two before playing

I know, right? Everyone has their thumb up their ass. I guess Rockstar, nor Sony care about Day 1 Digital

Sony says: 12:01 AM PST (1:01 AM in San Francisco, California.)

Why is there so much f*cking confusion? I was expecting my physical copy today but the store owner somehow managed to f*ck that up.

 

Decided to boot up the psn store to preload the digital copy instead and now im reading that preloading isn't available..

Still says midnight pacific!! I guess this isn't a big deal to most people but I doubt I'll get a chance to play it for the rest of the week :( If I could just play it for an hour or 2 I'll be fine and can wait till the weekend to really dive into it. 

Come on Sony! Pull through!

Thanks  :^:

I guess if I waited 2 years I can wait a couple more days.  I'll calm down now and check later at midnight :blush:

Not sure how Sony is going to handle that kind of traffic at midnight, the psn download speeds are slow as it is.

True... My internet has been acting pretty fast lately. I was able to download red dead in less than an hour so I figured 2 hours to download GTA V + 1 hour install and maybe play a little at 3am? But like you said with everybody downloading I doubt that would be the case.

Is there a reason for them not giving us the ability to preload? Was it because of the "leak"?

I heard that EU was able to preload already with no problems, so why do we get the shaft?

Yeah, differnt regions get differnt priviledges. Typically EU and Japan get all the really good stuff like this. Pre-Loading is not a feature we get on US (at least right now).

 

At least we get the day 1 digital though, Xbox cant download untill at least 1 full day after.

Any luck in the US? Mine is really weird. The price or option to purchase the game completely disappeared  yet it still shows overview, avatars and videos in the store menu.

Same thing. I think it just automatically removed the preorder option since it is the 17th. This sucks.

 

Well im off to sleep for a few hours, see you all at 3AM I guess... :facedesk:

I got the disc, but wanted to get the digital copy so I could put it on a friend's PS3...and looks like it can't be done yet? No complaints here as I got the disc, but the friend is practically pissin' himself with anticipation. Can't blame him!

 

From the confusing messages, it looks like it'll be available at 3pm Eastern, midnight specific...err, Pacfic! I mean...Pacific! AHH! I just inserted the disc and am watching it load. Freakin hands are shaking!! Picard, out.

It's working, downloading mines at the moment. My PS3 for the next 9 hours will be the only device in the house using internet. Sah-weet.

The waits over kids, let's go.
