    i don't think they meant it was the restart so much as the receipt of the email is the beginning. before you get the email, it won't be available on origin. idk that but that is what they meant.

    Makes sense; your account "unlocked" for preloading which generates an email. However, EA and sense don't always go together.

    Well everyone calm down. The game does not come out until Tuesday. you have a full 5 days to pre-load. Not to mention you will be playing said title for upwards of a year or better. Just be patient.
    Crap Daddy and Wrigleyvillain say thanks.

    If it said that, that would be hilarious and make me laugh and sigh be-musingly for their legal team rather than make me raise an eyebrow at the kind of typo I'd expect from a tweener addicted to instant messaging instead of a division supervising one of the largest videogame release events in history.

    Your nits, may I pick them? :D

    Any time. Its like watching a 13 year stare at their computer screen while 1 pic of a naked women loads over their 56K modem, then the phone rings. :banghead:

    In some real life "Battlefield" news the President has just announced that the vast majority of the rest of the troops in Iraq will be "home for the holidays".

    Yay

    Honestly, I love digital downloads. It makes me laugh when I think of all of the guys camping out in line at a store for a disc that they'll then have to physically get to their homes and wait through installing in order to actually play.

    Hands free installation and updating is where its at. Also gives plenty of time to defrag before game day.

    the email just tells you how to pre-load it in Origin,Origin already has the keys when it unlocks.Just about done mine.brandonwh64 did you not order the game hard copy ?And for the cjkeys they will send it when they open up the game boxes and send your key then resell the box lol If the company is not on the EA/Origin trusted sellers you will have to wait until Tuesday.

    Like me, you cannot hug your copy.

    Yeah if I wasn't in US I'd be miffed but at the same time the servers will likely be so hammered as it is. Imagine if the whole world was same release day...

    Meh, I'd rather hug something softer and more voluptuous. And knowing the state of the industry these days, they'd probably demand I buy an offline hugging pass and charge me Hugging Points per minute. :banghead:

    Humor, bro, just humor. :)

    I just really wanted a physical of this one and it turns out I can get one at Gamestop 4 blocks from my home on 10PM Monday (and still get the free Karkland and PWP). Otherwise I woulda gone Origin download for sure.

    I have my fingers crossed for you, Brando.

    Looks like my fears were unfounded. Between 11:13am and 11:16am I received 5 preload emails from Origin:laugh:

    I don't know what you guys are talking about. The UK got Duke Nukem Forever before it was released here.
