I don't think you can set this to download if you're away from your computer. On 360 you have to sign into the EA Sports app to launch it. I could be wrong though.

Why is it released so late in the day? I know if I payed for a season pass I'd want that joint available at midnight tonight.

Because they promise 3 days, not 4. Releasing at 6 is a good way to make sure those with decent internet will get that full 3 days.

And it's 25, not 50.

Why would you pay $50?
 
# 6 mestevo @ 08/23/12 02:55 PM
Yeah if I paid double price I'd be a little more demanding too.

1) $50, did you buy it twice thinking you would get it twice as early? (; (I jk..)

2) Never understood why some others thought it would be any different.

CAN NOT WAIT.

can you d/l before 6pm, so you actually get 3 days of use? or do you get to waste hours on the download?

Saturday, Sunday, Monday. 3 days. Friday night is there for you to download the game though it will be playable as soon as the DL is finished, even if it happens to be before midnight.

And no, when it goes live on the store is the first time you can download it.

If I download the season pass on a buddies PS3, but on my own PSN account, does the ultimate team stuff transfer over to my PS3?
 
# 12 IrOnKoBe @ 08/23/12 03:08 PM

Depends on the servers and your internet. For me, I can pretty much guarantee it'll be no less than 4 hours on my 5 MB down connection - it just takes that long for a 7-8 GB download (I'm just guessing at the size, but that's roughly what NCAA was).

I know people complain about PSN being slow (and it definitely is, sometimes), but throughout last year the early release download times were about what I'd expect for my internet speed.
 
# 17 WhatRobSaid @ 08/23/12 03:24 PM
How can I find my MB?
 
# 18 TheBleedingRed21 @ 08/23/12 03:24 PM
I had NCAA in like an hour and half or so. Very quick. Was playing before 8 pm est.

It really all depends on your internet speed. Got slow internet? Expect a while.
