Ok we all know its coming out this wednesday, but when can we actually download it ?

Can we download it at like 12:01am EST or is there a lag between when its actually Wednesday and the games release?

Just in case someone knows the exact time I live in EST.

10 A.M. GMT+1 I guess for me. That's a good time, I get up and there you go, it's on the Marketplace. So it's the 8th right? Good.

I am in Arizona and when I waited for Wolfenstein 3D (now I am questioning why I did, as the game is driving me nuts and is not as good as I remember it in '92) it didn't pop up till well into the early morning. I want to say around 4am or so.

yeah, but since Microsoft is an american company, it would be more likely to be done at a Midnight in the US, and since they're on the west cost, it'd be GMT -8

I usually download games at 11am (GMT) which means they usually appear somewhat just after 10. But I'm guessing it always takes a while to refresh the XBL servers to show and have the ability to download a game/add-on.
It'll be on at 10 or just after from my guesstimation.

Well, it's 8.42am GMT. British summer time is +1. So you can say no battlefield if it doesn't appear in 18 minutes.

Well as it's currently BST in the United Kingdom and not GMT, it's one hour ahead of GMT it's now 10:06AM.

Good so the site isn't lying. That previous poster thought he was on GMT, but he's on GMT+1, right? He called me out on it, and i don't like being called wrong when I aint.
