Is this possible? I would MUCH rather buy the game digitally on the PSstore but I don't want to wait 3 hours for it to be available to play. I asked PS support and they seem clueless and also told me that it all runs off of what the developers want, which is 12AM PST. So with that said, even if I go buy the hard copy will I be able to play at 12AM EST? If this timezone lock is exclusive to the digital version Its almost like its a 3 hour penalty for buying digitally versus buying the hard copy which doesn't make any sense to me. Does anybody have any official answers?
Just like the Alpha, and the Beta, Bungie will more than likely have the servers up and running hours before we purchase our copies at midnight. Friends, family and team members of Bungie should be playing as they may get the game early.
