Are Digital PS4 Preorders Available at Midnight?

[ Edited ]

If I pre-order games like Infamous second son, will they be available at midnight or will I have to wait for the store to update that day?

I wish they would just make this standard pratice,  if I knew they would update at midnight i would pre-order on PSN more often.

Half the games release at midnight (sometimes EST but mostly PST) and the others you gotta wait for the store to update

I have digitally pre-ordered before.

 

The game is available for download few days before release but unlocks for play at midnight.

 

you are welcome.

I have never had an issue with a pre-order on PSN.

I didn't say you had an issue, I'm just saying they're not always available for pre-loading.

 

Only extremely high profile releases tend to get pre-load in the PS Store. GTA V only had preload in the EU, I had to download it at midnight. The Last of Us also go a midnight release, but again there was no preload, only the play as you download thing that allowed me to play after 50% had downloaded. Most often the game isn't available to start downloading until either midnight or when the store updates on Tuesday afternoon.

@ck2875  just a misunderstanding between us.

 

Yes pre-loading is not for every game.

 

FIFA14 was preloaded too.

 

Battlefield 4 as well if i am not mistaken.

 

Never an issue with a pre-order, if i didn't download the pre-load(if it was available)

 

I just set it to download as soon as i woke up, while i was at work or cooking breakfast / shower / taking a dump.
