yep, it's like downloading it after it's out, but now you can waste the DL'ing time (must be huge) before it's out and play it as soon as they let you.

It's downloading now...doesn't show how fast its going, but it's a 2gig file and will be done in about 45 minutes. Can't I just change my system date to the 18th to play it...?

no, they probably don't give you the game Key or something like that to keep you from playing.
