Direct2Drive will start allowing downloads at 10:00am PST. So for those on the east coast that's about right now! GO! I'm not sure if EA is doing the same thing.

Edit: Yuck, I went with D2D and I'm getting like 50-100KB/s.

Edit2: Nevermind, now I'm getting over 1MB/s.

I want to play this game badly. I called my local Bestbuy, Circuit City and Walmart. All of them do not have it until Friday. That is ridiculous. I wanted to download off EA store, but their 6 month download policy is stupid. God, this is when STEAM would come in handy.

Hmmm...it is available for download at gamespot. I think I will wait for the hard copy instead. 7.17gb download... sheesh.

I kind of agree. However, the 360 version is not that much better looking than the bottom screen shot.

EDIT:

Anyone in So. Cal have any luck in finding a location that has Mass Effect available?

Yeah that is clearly an edited pic on the bottom. Its been scaled and the colors have been washed out. Where did that come from?

EDIT: Here, I just edited the top pic and it looks almost identical to the bottom one.

They aren't exactly the same, since the top and bottom pics aren't from the exact same angle, but either way, the bottom pic is clearly resized and scaled.
