It has been reported that BF4 release preloads can start this Saturday, it sounds like noon central.

Gamestop takes me to a page that says thank you for purchasing. I have no idea if I'll get to preload through gamestop or not.

Is BF4 listed in Origin? Did they give you a CD Key that you'd enter in Origin? Are they shipping you a boxed copy?

It's all suppose to be digital download. There's a key listed, but I read on another forum somewhere that the keys don't match up. I can't just copy the key that's listed on the gamestop app, and paste it into the origin section, I tried, it doesn't work. Funny thing is EA even has gamestop listed as a "special" preorder spot and what you get when you preorder from them. I was suppose to get dog tags. I din't.

Nothing to worry about, like I said. Preload in progress.

Goofy shit. All it did was take me to a web page with an origin product code on it. Once it's all downloaded, I have no incentive to keep this gamestop app. They never once answered a tweet or email about whether or not I could preload bf4(turns out I can), but how hard could that be. Yes or no. Anyway, I paid 47.98 for BF4 and 39.98 for Premium. Grand total, 87.96. And it's in English.

I got mine all preloaded. Kind of surprised at the size of 24.4GB. The only other game I know of that is that big is Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate edition (Or WoW with all expansions according to Newman). Any ideas on what might take up all that space? I'm hoping it's the maps.
