Pre-loading avoids the hassle downloading the same moment as everyone else. I'd argue that's a good thing for anyone, especially if your internet isn't crazy fast.

Yup, it's complete B.S. and it's the only thing keeping me from going full digital on PS4. Steam and Origin have no problem at all with releasing games according to your local time zone, so why is it a problem for Sony? Stupid. I am currently waiting til 3am EST to play Diablo 3 when I could have gone to GameStop and be home by now playing the game. Sony, get your sh*t straight!


"Well Steam does it!" Well goody for them. If you like the way Steam does it, then buy all your games there. Sheesh, take a science class, or look at map.


Your logic is not valid. Bye.

And your logic is no better by being so ignorant. Steam and tiem release lol. Funny thing is peopel get it early on steam when they SHOULDNT have it early. Why? They mess witht here clocks on the PS. Sony doesnt want everyone doing that. West coast people seeing its 9pm thee mid night east and changing there clocks on PS4 to get it early.


It actually does not work like that but okay. Your opinion.


I wouldnt be to sure on that. Ive litterly seen people do it.

Yea but if Bungie its self opened its servers at  8 am GMT then the digital copy should let us play we already have aquired the game if Bungie bends the rules for the people then sent early hard copies for why cant Sony do the same for those of us whom pre-ordered the Digital copy. Its the same thing minus a hard copy disc.

Where I live, is going to be 4am when the timer finally end, and I'm not whining about it. Just relax people...a couple hours or a day of difference will not determine if someone is going to be better or have better gear than you after, let's say, 200 hours of gameplay that many of us will have in the game

Technically it is sony's fault this time. Bungie has already said they don't care. People can play when they get it. The servers are up and xbox is already playing if they have a hard copy.

 

I was expecting to wait anyway, It's just irritating. I don't expect to play now, but a midnight release should be a midnight release. Fairness for the west coast doesn't mean jack if the other half the world is playing Smiley Tongue

you hit the nail on the head. I am not getting  the game now because of what they did. Messed with our release time on the east coast. I will vote with my cash.

Yes because the 3 hours does matter. Typically ill get a game at midnight, get home and play it for 2-3 hours. Waiting for 3 addition hours is 3 hours of growing more and more tired while waiting. By the time you get access to the game people are generally too tired to play that night (or if they do play, only for a short time) so they wait for the next day, but you have to get up for work, so you end up not playing the game until 5-6pm.

That 3 hour wait is prime gaming time for a lot of people.
