Definitely time to create it. (Y)

It doesn't look like pre-loading is possible, it's not in the store yet.

The devs sound pretty confident on twitter. I love this expression Erika used. I can only wonder what she's talking about... :lol:

Rightfully so it seems, as it appears their hard work is paying off. Not long to go now.

That page is unavailable. And, I still can't find it on the PS4 store. I can't find it under demos, free to play, or custom search

I think it might only be up on European servers, people on OS are having the same problems.

If you guys really want to get it now, you can make a European/Oceania account. People did that on OS and it's on the Playstation Store.

I think they meant midnight Eastern Time for those already in Friday. Which doesn't include the Eastern Time zone or the US. Why didn't they just say English time or Australian time or something. What a cock tease

It's very easy to make a foreign account, just make a new PS account and set your location to New Zealand or Australia.

It went live at 2 PM on the 24th here. It was meant to go live at midnight US ET and be available worldwide, but it seems there's some issues at Sony's end.

I understand that. But, they need to fix the PS4 US launch. Period. I'm not going to create another account because they messed up.

I'm still waiting, this was not a smooth demo launch.

Sony's to blame for that, not EA on this occasion.

I'm hearing that it's been resolved and gone live worldwide, if you'd like to check again.

Either way, still excited.

On PS4 it was on the game's page, just had scroll down to see the demo link.
