  • Question about digital download pre-order for MLB 17 on PSN

    Hi all,

    This year, I think I'm going to order the digital download version instead of the physical version. I have two questions about it.

    1. Will I be able to download it (but not play it, obviously) before it releases? (I know it's possible with some games, but not sure if that feature is on a game by game basis)

    2. When does it release? I'm located in the US. Is it 12am local time, or 12am Eastern time? (I'm located in Minnesota).

    Thanks!

    Yes. You will be able to download it about two days before it releases and then it unlocks when it releases.
    All I know is that it releases for me on March 27th 9PM (PST) and I live in Washington State.

      If I remember correctly its 12am Eastern Time, so others will get it sooner than midnight in the other time zones

        Humm, they havent done this before. Can you point me somewhere that that confirms this? I have always had to wait to download when it releases. I would love a pre release and just have to download what is necessary to get the game going at launch.

            Yup this is key. I'll be using rest mode exclusively starting Saturday night whenever I'm out the house until that bad boy shows up on my homescreen with the lock and I believe the countdown timer will still be visible so as soon as that puppy hits all zeroes midnight est Tuesday I'm in there.

            And yup no matter where you are, atleast in North America, your came will be available to play midnight eastern so 9 pacific, 10 mountain, 11 central... I lowkey envy you guys.

              They did it last year and I'm almost positive I heard somewhere they will do the same this year.
              Edit: I just checked and in my library it says expected pre-download date 03/25.
