Are we informed of the precise time when the game will be released for download? (i'm not talking about the date, but ex at 12:00)

12:00 CDT

So 10 PM (Monday the 16th) for people in California, 1 AM for people in New York.

Also, SpaceOddity is reporting that WalMart is advertising a June 19th release date, but there hasn't been any official word of that, and EA's store still says the 17th.
Looks like even I was being optimistic with a March 07 release date...

Wal-Mart is slow on deliveries. Their information on release dates is also often wrong. It could be some new stupid policy they put in place to prevent early releases (which get them fined a thousand dollars for every copy sold early). If it's not expected to be popular (or is for the PC), than they don't get the shipment in until closer to the release date. If it's something popular, they'll have a shipment or two in the back room for release day. My local Wal-Mart had GTA4 in it's storage room for like a week before it came out. My guess is the June 19th date is allowing them time to get shipments in because it takes time. Though on Monday Night/Tuesday they usually get the bulk of their Tuesday Release Titles.

We'll try to entertain you as best as we can that last day of waiting.

Songs, dances, videos, random links, insanity.

I think I'm weird. I don't really care about the creature creator as much as the vehicle creator. Oh well. It'll still be [insert cool profanity here] sweet.
Yeah... just watch out for the announcement that the demo is delayed. :P
