# 1 If I buy it today...
01-30-2010, 10:09 AM
If I go to Gamestop (or Amazon, etc) and buy STO, will I be able to download it and play it today? (Saturday, 1/30) Doesn't the box from Gamestop come with a headstart code? Would online get me a code faster?

Thanks

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure you're boned until Feb 2 .. You had to pre-order before yesterday to get into head start.

I went into Gamestop today and got my code. Entered it and am now playing. I'd say you would be fine.

If you can buy it, I'm pretty sure you can play.

GameStop allows $5 down for pre-orders...that way if you don't like it you can still cancel on Feb. 2 granted they are still handing out open beta codes with pre-orders.

Go in the store and preorder if you want to play ASAP. Its worth the extra 5 bucks. Otherwise, order online, elect for instore pickup, wait a few hours, then go there and ask for a beta key. Thats what I did and I'm in the process of patching now.

Just do not order from Atari store themselves as they seem to have problems providing their customers with keys.

As I am unfortunate to find out, oh and their customer support is absolute worthless, I have absolutely no clue when or ever I will get my key.
