Well I'm in the UK and the main page of Direct2Drive says it'll be ready to download 9am on the 18th (20h 38m from now).

People who bought it on Direct2Drive were already able to download it like 8-9 hours ago.

*cries salty tears*

A f*** it. I'll just buy it again when I get home, from Direct2Drive. I'll give the other copy to my GF.

So wait, what about us in the USA?  Can we get it from Direct2Drive as well, or do we have to wait for tomorrow or what??
AHH!!!!!

Oh, and what does CDT mean?  Central Daylight Time?  Certain Death True?  Anyone?

I cant comprehend how direct2drive can be faster than actual gameseller EA...

That is simply plain bad.

Not to speak of advertising the game on the 16th, then 22th then 17th then 18th...yeah one hour more and then it is 18th....omg if the development of spore did go the same way..then we are in for a big nasty surprice.

That's US Release, but that's a change anyway.

CDT = Central Daylight Time. It would seem. Some insane US designation. As if Eastern, Central, Mountain and all that crap isn't enough. Not to mention CET (Central European Time) and the fact that GMT has been renamed to UT.

I wish we could all stick to ONE designation. I don't give a monkeys where it's located as long as we all calculate from it with the appropriate +/-  :-\

Methinks CDT is the same thing as central time zone. (BTW, we Americans think European time zones are crazy, too.)

Americans tried to make New York the place where timezones start :P Also, the GMT is a worldwide standard. That's easiest.

Like I said:
I don't prefer one unit over the other, and I also mentioned the European ones were stupid. I just said I wanted ONE standard.
Currently the international standard is UT though (or GMT if you like, it's just the old term), so I can't understand why it's so effing hard for Americans (and the people who think CET is wonderful) to use it! Don't agree to use something you wont ><
I don't care if it's New York Standard Time or Alaska Time or effing Belgium Standard Time! As long as people use it. ALL the countries.

Damnit, spent ages trying to get my download from direct2drive.co.uk to start, but now i'm getting 7kbps dl speed! I've already complained to d2d asking for my money back, because spending 24h downloading a 300mb file is beyond a joke. It would've been quicker to just bust my balls now and get it over with.
