Waiting to start my digital preload of the game, since it's obvious going to take awhile. 

Anyone know when it will start?

Evil. EVIL. 

And 

 

UK?

Nah, US. I live in PA.

I think I got the times right, when trying to figure out the time zone thing. The article I read said 3 am EDT. So, I believe since I'm EST, depending on what EDT actually means, I could be confused, I have 30 minutes to wait before I can start my preload. 

Hopefully, getting a head start before the others preload theres, and PSN won't crash on me then.

Mines downloaded and 97% installed. But in the install last night it failed and I had to download all over again. My download took about 5hrs, the first 80% took 1.5hrs then the last 20% took 3.5hrs for some reason.

Didn't Rockstar say that the whole 3 AM Pre Load thing was a mistake?

I have no idea. I'm looking at the updated reports, and most are saying 3 AM. Time will tell. Only like, 15 minutes left.

Yep, yep! Probably going to reset my internet connection five minutes before hand, just to make sure anything that happens wouldn't be on my connection's fault. 

Then, I shall let it go smoothly and sleep it off.

Have no idea. No other sources have updated that. I saw one site, the most recent one, have like, five updates. Changing back and forth, and back and forth. 

This much though? If it isn't up for preload, Sony won't be seeing any more digital downloads from me again. Already knew I was taking a risk pre-ordering it from PSN. I knew they have sh*tty service.

The preload scenario got f*cked up once people started picking through the files & leaking info

Which again, is on Sony. 

I love my PS, but honestly? I'm getting tired of Sony's support with it.

Sony on their PlayStation twitter, as well as the PS Blog mention no pre loading for North America. Although R* have said it would be 3 AM EST. I am 90% sure there was a reason for that, and that reason involved Sony telling R* something. They would have no reason to mention it otherwise. Sure it could have been a f*ck up on the person who manages their twitter, but wouldn't they have fixed that pretty much right after? Instead of hiding it inside of a reply? Hell they still have the original tweet. Any other company would have deleted it and retweeted the fixed one.

 

Now I'm not saying anything bad about R*, but for their biggest launch in history pretty much, they aren't doing a good job at keeping the digital folks informed and up to date.

 

Anyway 7 minutes until the moment of truth.

Down to 5, now. 

They better be some sort of f*cking poreloader. I swear, that would be the biggest non-care for fans ever. 

This is going to be a huge release. If I ever wanted Sony to nut up, and put some effort in their PSN, now is the time. Put a damn preloader up. 

Or not, they'll just wait for PSN to crash so they have to get off their asses then.

My PSN said it wouldn't be able to be preloaded here in the UK until the 16th but R said it would at 3pm on 15th. The later happened.

Interesting. 

I don't think NA PSN runs as well as the UK one does. 

Why? Because, apparently it's just another way of showing how lazy we are.

I downloaded yesterday from PSN, took 2 hours to download. Install went well, takes longer than disk install.

Can you set it to auto-download on the US store? I'll be at work when it releases.

Pfft. 

Like they'd care.

Well, that's semi-reassuring. I still think it might take a bit longer, since they decide to RELESE THE DAMN PRELOADER ON RELEASE DAY. ON f*ckING RELEASE DAY. 
 

So the whole PSN will most likely crash, I'm sure.
