So does this mean that midnight release parties at stores anywhere other than in the PST time zone are effectively killed?If I buy on the East Coast at a ... Gamestop for instance, I will take it home, install it and still not be able to play for at least an hour or two. OR ... I could digital download, stay at home where it's warm, go to bed at a normal time and be rested for the initial leveling push, set my alarm for 3am EST, get up and play (or wait for restarts etc).

I think that if you get your box that night, take it home, and install, that you'll be able to play as soon as it's done. You only have to wait for your digital download to turn on if you've done it through the download service. As I am East Coast, this makes me happy!

Whoops, upon further investigation ... ignore my comment. I 'twas wrong. I blame Sacco!

Why would they be killed? They still have giveaways and stuff at them, don't they?But no giveaways with digital downloads.If they really wanted to get people to switch to digital downloads from boxes that cost money to make/ship (and that also include a cut to retailers in the price) they should offer free authenticators shipped after purchase.
