WOW what a stupid day to have maintenance. Its like they did this on purpose just to see what people would say. I really hope this doesn't continue into the 16th when the 1st day digital of Doom 3 Bfg Edition comes out. If they are still doing maintenance after 12:00 am it will be on there head. They could of atleast done this after all the day 1 digitals are released. If this continues into the 16th im not purchasing future day 1 digital games from psn ever again. I will go to an actual store and pay for an actual physical copy.
Well its 12:34 am on Tuesday the 16th and I still can't download Doom 3 Bfg Edition. All I get is the theme that I already downloaded. What gives? At least ps store is up and running.
EDIT: After reading some replys It looks like I will be waiting a few hours until its actually released. This will definitely be the last time I will get a day 1 digital game from psn because it isn't actually a day 1 purchase if you can't get it 12:00 am on the day its suppose to be released. Kind of defeats the purpose of calling it day 1 doesn't it?
Its 2:30 pm here and still Doom didn't get released on psn. I didn't expect it would take this long. This is false advertising at best. Did they forget to activate the download of the game. This just shows how unorganized they are. First this badly timed psn maintenance for the useless update for the new ps store and now this. It seams they really don't care. This is very sad.
I thought DAY 1 DIGITAL meant the game was going to be released at midnight on 10/16/12. If I knew I was not going to be able to download it until 7:00 pm est, I would have bought Doom 3 at gamestop.
I'm never using day 1 digital download again two times this has happened now... here's my thread in the support forum http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation
I expected to have it preloaded when I got home today at 4PM EST, instead I had to wait until 630 EST to just download 7GB, then wait for the lengthy install. If I preorder something I expect it pre-everyone else. I could have been playing it immediately if I would have just bought it at the store at lunch, or kept my Day 1 preorder from Amazon. Now I'm questioning my NFS preorder bc I'm sure a lot more people will be purchasing that and the size will be significantly larger... Come on Sony, is it that hard to preload a game on a system?
