September 13 - It's Friday, so what do I have for you? A Friday Highlight - here!
September 5 - It's patch day for The Sims 4 on PC/Mac! Take a look at what changed on here!

Download unavaliable??

I just bought the sims 3 from the store, installed download manager, but the "start" button is faded out. I did not get the pre-order version, but the "ready to download and play" one. Anyone got the same problem?

    Release date isn't until tomorrow, June 2nd. You will be able to download it then.

    That's true, but I believe there was a specific time attached as well. Someone else may be able to provide the exact time it becomes available (or it may be available in the details of the order).

    Patience is definately not one of my strong traits! And, sadly for me I live in Minnesota, will have to wait what seems like forever for mine!

    Doesn't make sense to me either, seems to drive away digital download customers. You'd also think that they would begin at midnight - maybe they don't want to pay for having the extra network oversight that will be needed on for off hours?

    The Store and Riverview have been available for some time (I downloaded it this past Saturday).

    The digital download of the game is scheduled for 7am Pac. Unless something changed very recently.
