Default Crysis available now??

I just got an email that changed the release date through EA store to Nov 9th. Anyone else get this? I don't see it on my download manager yet.

Thank you for ordering on EA Store (US). The product that you pre-ordered is now available for either preload or release. The EA Download Manager indicates the release date and time of your purchase. The preload is a convenience to get you into the game faster when the release date arrives.

Ok seems like a preload.

It looks like a preload. Not sure how big it is, but judging by the speed and time left it looks like ~6gb.

Good compression. EA Link/Downloader has always had good compression.

My gogamer order page says the game's status is "new".

I don't remember seeing that before. I'm pretty sure it said backorder or on order or something like that.

My preorder has been in for about 5 months now.

EA is pre-loading the game for "unlocking" on the 13th (next Tuesday)
http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/35...ng-at-EA-Store

The 13th also is an "adjusted" ship date for boxed versions, Crysis should be in stores on Wednesday the 14th
http://www.ebgames.com/product.asp?p...%5Fid=B647118A

sooo close now
