Payday 2 (Day 1 digital joke)

Where is it? I pre- ordered the game on Psn and it said I could download the game at 12:01am. When I try to download the game it just downloads the pre-order theme. I can't even begin to tell you how angry this makes me and others that are having the same issue. This will be the last title I will ever pre-order through Psn. As soon as the customer service line opens up someone is going to get an ear full.

Sometimes it takes an extra hour or two.  The Playstation Store was never designed to do updates outside of the normal Tuesday afternoon maintenance windows, and only started offering midnight releases a few months ago.  Timing it at 12:01 exactly isn't trivial.  It may not even be possible.  Even GameStop makes you wait your turn in line to get your game, and doesn't guarantee that you get the game at the stroke of midnight either. The 12:01 scheduled time is just that.  A scheduled time.  It isn't a money-back guarantee.

Then it's false advertising. When it tells you that you can download the game at 12:01 then you should be able to do so. If it's not an option then why advertise it as such?

Because Sony doesn't employ any psychics, and so it has no way of knowing in advance whether there is going to be a delay in making the game available.  As any actual lawyer would tell you, advertising something does not create a legal obligation to make it happen exactly as stated.  That is a common misconception among entitled consumers. Plans change, and unforeseen events occur.  It is only false advertising if the advertiser never had any intention of doing what was advertised.  That obviously was not the case here, and is almost impossible to prove even when it does happen.

It's still not up.  When i bought it at 530am it said Full Game, not Preorder Full Game.  

 

Imagine my surprise when it downloaded a free theme instead of the game.  

 

Not very happy right now.

Same here I stayed up till Midnight gave up set an alarm for 3am still no dice. I will never again pre-order through Psn. This isn't the first time this has happened. I'm looking at you Bioshock Infinite.
