Feb 5th, or nearly Feb 6th?
Anyone know if the Download timer on Dragonborn is right?, have we still got to wait another 19 hours before we can finally get our hands on Solstheim?

The timer on the storepage is correct.

The game is releasing Feb 5th at 10 am PST. That is the local time zone for Valve [West Coast USA].

If your located somewhere else in the world [non-USA], then the release could be approaching Feb. 6th, as you stated.

If I did the math correctly, it puts me at about 1300 hrs on Feb 5th.

Here in the uk its nearer 6-7pm, sad times.

I pre-ordered in the UK and have sat waiting and hoping. Time to go to bed, I guess. I forgot that the world's axis was governed by the USA and us mere mortals spin around them...

To be honest its a little bit annoying, i mean i don't really care that i pre-ordered, that doesn't bother me i'd just as soon have paid if it released now tonight, but the fact that i now have to wait like 80% of the day of the 5th for it to release annoys me.

Thats so annoying! Having to wait all this time for the xbox exclusive and now having to wait again.... I would'nt be so bothered if they had commuicated the fact it was not a midnight release at everyones local time.

soon it will be within your reach, so just enjoy the small moment of waiting :D

Wow amazing how such a possibility is impossible considering everyones 'midnight' let alone date when it comes to people in australia (or outside of it if you live there) is not going to be the exact same time thanks to a little universal and widely known thing called TIMEZONES.

Seriously, can you get someone in your house to smack the dumb out of you?

Thats what happens when most major games are made in the USA.

Well, lets remember Skyrim is dependent on STEAM. STEAM will open shop tomorrow at 10 am PST, so no one should be suprised by that timing.

Don't mind waiting until 1PM. It's worth it.

That sucks; I work the night shift and 10AM PST is only an hour and a half before my bed time, and then I have to work six tens after that, so no time to play at all until next Sunday.

Actually, i think you need to ask someone in your house to help you with your reading, Relinquish never said anything about simultaneous midnight releases, but regional releases which makes sense.

Like when Skyrim went live on 11.11.11 at 0:00 here in the UK, it wasn't released at exactly that moment around the world, I personally don't care if the Americans get it first by a few hours, i don't care if Australia get it a week ahead, what bothers me, is when a release date is given, it should be available as early as possible on that date.

For Example, when we all used to go to Stores to buy our games, if there was a release date, you could camp out over night at the doors and get it when the store opened, (in your own time zone, you didn't have to wait for that stores HQ to open on another continent) Midnight releases of games have always been a big thing.

For me, the real annoyance is with the issue that despite my DLC being released Today (For me) i've still got to wait untill early evening before i can even begin to download it, would have been far easier had they said we could download it on the 6th, and i'd have been happy getting it 5 hours early, rather than 19 hours late on the 5th.
