Yes. Twitter and the PS Blog confirm this. And it's been confirmed for 3 days.

No, that someone at EST would get it on 12? I made a mistake on the few first posts. I'm EST. 

 

 

Yes. The game will be available for download on the PS Store at 12 AM EST/9PM PST. Confirmed by Sony and R*.

 

 

Here is Sony confirming 12 AM EST

And R* confirming 9 PM PST.

https://twitter.com/...697070154358784

 

So in a about an hour I'll be able to download, correct? Or I'm waiting till 3am my time? (It's 10:49 right now.)

 

I'm in CST.

Alright, in about 4 minutes I'll find out for sure. I'll give them a grace period of 20 minutes or so over, it almost never lets you DL RIGHT at 12:01 (at least not with last of us, I had to stay up till roughly 4:45 AM for that game)

Yep, the DL button for the theme is gone now. This happened for last of us too. In about 15 minutes, it will become available for actual download.

 

Awesome. ion, you rock, bro. I was worried I'd be waiting another 5 hours or more.

I'll come back in 15 minutes, should be ready to download then.

 

Been fun waiting, guys. If you don't have experience with PSN digital downloads, a general rule of thumb is give it 15-30 minutes past midnight and you should be able to download. 

 

Have fun, all!

 

EDIT: The download button just now DISAPPEARED, is what I'm saying. It was there, but it just downloaded the theme. What happens with PSN preorders is that the download button, once it hits midnight, disappears- this is basically just a sign that the game is getting ready shortly. Then you have to exit the game's store page (or PSN store entirely to be safe) and come back every 10 minutes or so until the download button shows up again. Most preorders come with themes. Up until midnight, the download button ONLY gives you the theme, so just keep checking till it lets you dl the whole game.

Weird, for me the download button disappeared entirely for the theme. Gotta keep checking periodically for the next half hour and it should show up again, only this time it will let us download the full game, no just a theme.

Do you guys recommend not hitting downloading in background ?
I don't wanna wake up in the morning and have a crash or error with the download inside the psn store

Go ahead and hit it, it won't hurt anything.

 

EDIT: Unfortunately, I can't download it just yet. It seems to be random for everyone. Seems to fluctuate anywhere between 15-45 minutes after midnight before people's download button appears. So odd that it doesn't show up for everyone at once.

Yes, my guess is that we will be waiting till 12:45 or so before the download button appears for everybody.

 

It's actually not so much that they are lying- they've already started the "Gears", if you will, that much is evident from the download button disappearing. I'm guessing it's just a lengthy process.

 

In fairness to us as customers though, they should definitely say "12:30-12:45AM" and not "12:01am" :/

Precisely how I feel every time I do this.

 

On the bright side, at least we don't have to take the time to drive back and fo-..Oh..Yeah. We didn't get to preload. Right.

Yeah it's obvious the store is in the process of doing the download as evidenced by the download button disappearing but they should have been more accurate with the download time

That's my point. 

PRELOAD should've been avabile.

I know, like, not being able to do pre-loading is one thing, but the download not being ready at the time advertised? Come on now
