Tick tock...

So that's like 9:00 AM CET on Friday. Perfect start to that day. Eggs, coffee and Crysis!

Actually, I loved my 5950U. It flew through any game I threw at it. CoD, FarCry, HL2, etc. It was a nice card. Not the king, but it was nice still.

Yes. Sure, it did trail behind the 9800XT a bit... but not so much so that those early DX9 games were vertually unplayable. FarCry had the worst performance- with all in-game options maxed, 2xAA, 8xAF, vsync+tb I was limited to playing at 800x600. But, it literally stayed pegged at 30fps. Very playable for that game IMO. Never did it jump above 30, never below. Literally was continually pegged at 30 the entire game. So I was happy.

With HL2 the only resolution it chugged on was 1600x1200, if I recall correctly. CoD was a breeze.

im not exactly sure, but,i think you just log in at the ea website with the user name and password you used to purchase from the ea store.

there's an ea downloader thingy which is available, im assuming it will all become clear in a couple days !

Bleh. It preorder for digital dl only, no retail preorder. Heck if I wanna download 18gigs of data. Just a guess since StrangleHold was 12gigs.

If they're letting people that pre-order get the demo a day early, I wonder how long it will take for it to hit the torrent sites.

good point, I wouldn't be surprised if the demo "leaks" a few hrs before the official 10/26 release, that is if Crytek can actually get it out on 10/25 to those who preordered the game from EA.

Early demo is most likely linked to the digital download. If it gets leaked they'll know which buyer leaked it and sue or something.
