Thunder, just go check the Xbox store. Rough quote "Digital versions will be unlocked and become playable at 12:01pm EST"

I ended up ordering the game off Amazon.  Noticed that there were some Prime member savings and that I'd get $10 off because of it.  Figured that with my misgivings since the Master Chief Collection, $50 was a fair price to pay. lol. Won't get the game until Thursday as I pre-ordered a little late (early Sunday morning).

Nice Xpert! It'll be good to play with you again.

Miller - that was my thought too. Launch is at 9pm for me so I'll get a lot of play time without even having to stay up late.
It's making me think I might be able to binge through the entire campaign launch night...

I was thinking if I should buy a physical copy?
Sometimes I just like having the game in my hand and feel like I have something solid.
Then again, I currently have the digital version of COD AW and it doesn't really matter much. Maybe I should go ahead and start a D/L tonight and get the game? Not that I can play at midnight, but it always feels better knowing that something is there--even if you don't have time to play it at that time.

There's no advantage to having a physical copy right (i.e. special codes, weapons, or armor?)

Just the potential trade in value should you not keep your games forever. Otherwise I think digital editions are superior in most every other way.

I think I am on mission 7 now, and it's really good so far. The first level was pretty underwhelming, and felt so generic. Then it just ramps up and gets good from there. I guess the first mission is really the "trainer" like in most games, but I a worried there for a bit. I haven't tried multiplayer yet, and will wait until after I power through the campaign. I can't wait to play more, but better hit the sack for work tomorrow.

Called it a night after about 5 hours messing around with the customization and playing the solo campaign. Stopped at the start of mission 8. Great game and better story. Some of the missions are CRAZY - you really have to think about how to proceed because you get no prompts. Some of the enemy AI are CRAZY and shouldn't be taken for granted.

My only complaint is that there are too few ammo drops ... ran around far too often with both guns empty just waiting for someone to drop a weapon. Then, it would have about 15 rounds or 25% energy and I'd quickly have to drop it empty to find another.

Should be ready to do coop after tomorrow.

Well, finished up co-op last night on Legendary. Overall happy with the campaign. There were definitely a few parts that were rather difficult on legendary. Hope everyone else enjoys it.

Time for some MP tonight! Very Happy
