        Also pre-ordered (PS4)

        As mentioned, though, already 7 pages of discussion at the end of @trying link. Not sure why that thread has never been moved to the gaming forum, but there you go.

                    Why midnight? The release date is 17th (Wednesday). I'd have thought that would mean you can play midnight Tuesday.

                    I thought about buying it digitally, just to make sure I could get it on the DoR, but then realised that if my console goes bump for any reason, I've lost the game.

                      Guess it just the way the pre-orders work as midnight will be the 17th so they have to go by the 17th I guess

                        Thatís my whole point. Midnight on Tuesday (I.e. tonight) will be the 17th. Midnight on Wednesday will be the 18th. Maybe this is a conversation lost in translation. Where I come from, midnight on Tuesday is still Tuesday, even though itís technically Wednesday.

                          Called in at Game on my way home from work and they confirmed my pre-order has arrived. Buggers wouldnít let me take it, though, because itís not officially released until tomorrow. Damn red tape!!

                            Oddly, it was available for me to download on PSN this morning. That was a nice surprise. I got a couple of frames in and I have to say I enjoy it. I would definitely recommend the harder aiming aids, especially if you have spent any time playing the pure pool/snooker series. The graphics were not all that bad, the table and area directly surrounding the players look good enough. The players look ok, not great but ok. They at least look better than the models from WSC 11. The game can actually look quite good at times. The table is a bit quick, but I don't think it's too much quicker than a star with brand new cloth.

                            I have two main gripes so far. First, the big one, the AI doesn't play proper safeties, It just rolls up to balls and plays negative safeties. I'm hoping that is a glitch that can get patched out since even WSC 11 would play standard safeties off the pack. The second is a very minor complaint/wish for the career mode. I would have preferred having my first matches being in Qschool and getting to qualify for the tour. I really enjoy the feeling of progression in sports career modes where you feel your character progressing from the low levels up to the big stage. A great example of this is MLB the Show where your first games are on AA teams playing in very small venues. For snooker, I would prefer starting in Qschool and essentially playing on the outside tables unless I go up against a top player and eventually earn the right to play on tv tables regularly. Again it's a very small thing, and doesn't really impact the enjoyment of the game.

                              Youíve no idea how hard I had to resist reading the post above, but I flatly refuse to until Iíve played it. Unfortunately thatís not going to be until late tomorrow night because as soon as Iíve picked it up tomorrow morning Iím going to be out till late evening.
