  • Steam and Farcry 2? Anyone??

    I thought today was the Magical Day STEAM would open up the Download/Pre-load of Far Cry 2....but alas I still see nothing (But a Steam Client update)... Anyone else get a pre-load/install yet????

    I saw on Ubisoft's page that the Digital Download is not available until 10AM PST.

    Probably the same for Steam.

      THX... 10AM PST.. Grr... I could walk in and get it at 0900 EST .. Geez.. Oh Well.. no rush..
      You would think the Pre-Load though would have started last night and just unlock the think at that time.. The servers would thank them.. And again.. The Publisher doesn't have to make a disc or print any box and ship it to stores etc.. and what does the STEAM purchaser get..? Convenience? Must be since I keep falling for it..

        Ubi does have to pay a sizable cut to Valve though. And who knows if it's Valve or Ubi who's holding the release til 1pm. Ubisoft has done more puzzling things than this.

          When I left for work this morning Steam said 11 hours till release(?). I'm sure it will be a large download so I'll just start this evening and overnight.

            It would be neat to see the total amount of Bandwidth that STEAM will use when a release like this get's dumped out there.. Must BE HUGE!! That's why I assumed all the titles (Like the HL2 Episodes etc.) would be PreLoaded... Just to save the Internet!!

              Steam stats say they are currently using 13gbit bandwidth!
