So there's the transcript from my conversation with an online rep. I highlighted my questions in yellow and their response in green. They issued me a refund without hesitation. Guess I'll be visiting Wally World at 12 AM EST. Such a shame. Edit # 1 Since there are so many nitwits on these forums, I felt I needed to add this. My reason for canceling the digital order was so that I could play at midnight my local time with friends that are buying the disc. It had to do with the fact that waiting until 3 AM would've changed the release plan WITH FRIENDS that's been in place for a while now. So please in the name of Al Bundy, quit assuming that people in EST want to play "before everyone else" or "you can't find shit to do till 3 AM you're pathetic" or all of the stupid other crap some of you guys are saying. Think of it like this. You're invited to an unreal New Year's Eve party. Unfortunate for you, your 94 Civic broke down and the next cab isn't available until 3 AM. According to you smart azzes in this thread you wouldn't give a rats azz cause it's only 3 hours. You watch the ball fall from home, drink alone, and show up to the party at 3 AM. You show up, hot chicks have been claimed, booze is dried up, and party poppers have been popped. You missed the midnight fun with your friends. Always next year I guess. TL:DR - It's not about getting to play early, before anyone else, or world firsts. It's about playing with friends and experiencing the launch. A guy below gave a good example. Imagine starting xmas, Halloween, Easter, or whatever 3 hours late. Sure you can do it but it's not much fun.
