Resident Evil 6 on PSN

5 replies 895 views Edited Oct 1, 2012

I am having a hard time finding an answer but theres less than a day left before the game comes out so I need to know.

 

I want to get this game on PSN but I do not want to wait like til 9 pm waiting for the store to update while everyone else can get theirs at midnight. My question is, Will it be available to purchase and download at midnight?


I want to make sure before i run over to gamestop to cancel my preorder for a psn card.

No it will not be up at midnight. You'll have to wait for the store to publish tommorow.

Just a quick reply you let you know really, but, the whole reason I and many others buy digital pre-orders is that one can play the game the second it is released. I find it beyond extremly poor customer service that I will not be able to play a game I pre-ordered on PSN on it's release time.

I can assure you this will be the first and the last time I EVER pre-order ANYTHING from the PSN store and I will advise others against it as well in future.

I understand how you feel. Thats why i dont get my games digitally. However they are making strides towards improvement. I'm sure the midnight release is something you will see in the future.

if something is downloading extremely slow try canceling the d/l and starting a new one.  it seems like maybe they have this content streaming from different servers and sometimes you get stuck on a slow server.   i always start 2-3 d/l of the same content and then check to see which one is d/l faster and go with that one.    when i first discovered this me and 3 friends were all d/l the same demo, we all started at the same time and they were playing before mine was at 10%.  i sat there for 15 minutes watching this paint dry till finally i canceled the d/l and started a new one, 4 minutes later i was playing.   i dont know if its different servers or whats going on but you can get some really slow d/ls  that are fixed by starting a new one.

 

as far as d/l full/large games it usually takes about an hour to an hour and a half which really isnt to bad, the bad part is all the space it takes up on the hard drive.
