I have a PS Plus subscription. A bunch of people that pre-ordered the digital version of Grand Theft Auto V on PSN are saying that, if you have 'automatic update' set to ON, it will automatically download the game for you. Is this true? If its not, then I'll have to set an alarm to wake up at 3am and start the download manually.
I'd just set the alarm to be sure. It would be annoying to wake up in the morning and have to wait 4 hours or so for it to download.
Has anyone at Sony and/or Rockstar stated that the Digital version will release at midnight/shortly thereafter? If not, it probably won't be available until the store updates on Tuesday afternoon.
That being said, yes, preordered digital games SHOULD download at your scheduled automatic update time, but only in the case where it falls AFTER the game is actually made available to download.
