You will be able to access pre-loaded games at 12:01 am

I just talked to microsoft support. The rep told me that if I had pre loaded destiny for example, I would be able to access the game at 12:01 am even though I live in the east coast u.s.

Here is proof of chat:

The only pre-loaded game I ever played was Leisure Suit Larry.

I hope they didn't give you wrong information.

I pre-loaded Destiny yesterday, just checked now and it still says it won't be available until 3 am if you're in the eastern time zone.

dude you must not know what time zones are

12:01 is basically pst aka west coast not everybody on here is from the west. So that does not apply to all or the majority either

OMG Look at the chat transcripts! I specifically asked them about that. Why did I even bother to post the proof when people like this won't even look at it.

people like this??

dude it will NOT be 12:01 eastern. Never has never will. The only time we (east coast) get any games at midnight are physical copies.

you know what I hope I'm wrong and eat crow cause I would def be surprised if it actually happens.

even though I work on the 9th it would be cool to get an hour in

didn't mean to come off like a d before

Yea customer service reps can be notorious for misinformation, unfortunately.

Believe me dude, I'm not looking to bust balls either - I hope you're right, but I don't know if that's accurate. It stills says 3 am for EST on the Store.

If I download the US version and switch my console back will I get to play at 12:01 GMT?

I wouldn't trust this. I'm on CST time and all new releases are not available to download here until 2:00 am.
