It's out tonight, but what TIME?

#1 Posted by JasonLeeson (201 posts) -

Can anyone say exactly what time Ms. Splosion Man will be out tonight? I live in the UK, so will it be:
 

  • UK 00:00 for UK accounts?
  • Midnight in the USA?
  • Some other time?

It tends to be early in the morning for the UK, from prior experience.

Allrighty, so by early in the morning, you mean 00:00-03:00AM?
 
Just calculating how much Red Bull I need to drink to get this party started ASAP :D

I believe the usual US time is 3AM Pacific.  Sop it would make sense for the UK one to be similar.  But it is by no means a hard and fast time.  You are probably better off sleeping till 5 when it's almost assured to be out than hammering a refresh button for a couple hours.

It varies, some have gone up at like 3 or 4 in the morning, others not until 9 or 10. 
 
I'd suggest just going to sleep and downloading it when you wake up.

Ok I am speaking to the right guy here - The fact that you can say '3 or 4 in the morning' means you are way more hardcore than I, and must certainly be a huge fan of at least one game on XBLA :P@YoungFrey said:

Oh man imagine if I'd awoken and continually hit the refresh button anticipating Trenched here in Europe :O

Well gentlemen, here we are.
 
8:40AM in the UK and still no Ms. Splosion Man.
 
I fear it may be as Aishan said and not be until the 9 or 10AM time rage.
 
We can only hope.

@Aishan: Haha niiiice. Downloading now. 1.97GB on a 310kb/sec max download speed connection. :O
 
 As of writing Ms. Splosion Man is available if you look in the A-Z section (under 'M') but not currently in the 'Newest' games main arcade screen slider.
