Yes you can play it online today with the early release. The download speed seems totally random, I normally download demos in 10mins or so even if they are like a gig or so and im only 10% done after 30 mins so far

Some people with average connections are flying through it, others with awesome ones are taking ages. One guy said him and his bro started same time hes on 10% his bro over 30%.

I should be able to play around 9pm or so at this rate

Sorry for all the dumb questions but what do I do to get it today? Is it in the store?

Will just cancel my play.com order now

You still need to purchase the full game


The early release is only until the game is released, you get it for like 6 days then it stops working when the game is released. If your on PSN im not sure how you get it sorry, on xbox you need to download EA Season Ticket and subscribe which is around 18 i think.

You also get to try out games like tiger woods, nhl, madden, fifa street etc 3-4 days before released normally.

70mins for me too download it. Not too bad.

On 100mb connection though so not sure if that makes a difference or not.

The F1 demo took over 4 hours the other day.

Tell her you are going out to buy the game.
Go to bar and get ****ed up
Come back and play game that is downloaded and say "hey wife, check out my new game"
She will be like "nice"

Mine went up to 700 mins at 17% so I cancelled and tried again.

Try 1: 370mins
Try 2: 310mins
Try 3: 76mins and at 3%

So if yours is taking really long try cancelling and redownloading again I reckon.

Some quick thoughts:

I didn't play the demo much but it seems wayyyy different than the demo.

First touch definitely makes a big difference.

Game is faster. Plays really fast on auto controls.

Manual plays really well.

Yeah pretty sure they will have patched it like yesterday before release and we will get another couple patches this week more than likely.

Demo codes are always meh.

84%
