I'm officially seriously jealous.  I'm betting I won't get my download email for a couple more hours yet.  Oh well.  I guess I really should sleep.  Have fun Jude.

Thanks, Ricalynn. Hopefully, it will be finished downloading by morning (it's 10:00 pm now) so I can start installing everything. I got the Katy Perry one and it looks like I'll have more to download once it's installed. Have a good sleep!

ha, there is a Showtime app on Facebook, just about to have a look, but dinner is almost cooked too, so it might have to wait a bit.

I have a question for those who get it early (ie before me lol) Twin 2 is interested to know (and me too) what the ring you see the acrobat spinning in is called. Do they refer to it as a Roue Cyr or do they call it something else?

Wow, I'm NEVER buying a digital copy from Origin again. I left it downloading while I slept. It said it would take like 5 hours. I woke up this morning, 7 hours later, and it is stuck at "preparing." Five minutes later, it says it's still at 8% and it's stopped downloading altogether.

I'm sorry, Moons. Mine was ready to install as soon as a woke up this morning. Breakfast had to wait :)

Mine took about 30 mins to d/l and install.  But then I had to go to work, so no playtime for me until this evening. :(

Oh, Moons, sorry to hear that. Mine took about 50 mins to download, then I waited an hour until I realized I had to get the registration code from the confirmation e-mail and enter that, after which it took about 10 mins to install.

Me! :D Huge Katy fan,  only way would've ordered faster was if Miss Gaga was involved. :)

My copy is on the UPS truck and should be waiting at home for me after work.  Gotta love Amazon.com - $0.99 shipping for release day delivery!  I just got the limited edition but not the Katy Perry one.  Her music is okay, but I wasn't gonna pay an extra $10.  I agree, if it were Gaga I would have gotten it without question.

I gave up on digital downloads a while ago because it was taking me 6-8 hours to download each EP and 2-3 hours per SP.  In theory they're a very good thing, but doing a full reinstall would take me close to a week at that rate.

Heehee, me too! ;D I am still waiting for the day that EA decide to give us Gaga-themed outfits. The current sim outfits are too normal for my insane sims! :P

So I didn't expect to be able to get Showtime until tomorrow seeing as how sometimes Steam is a day late.  I decided to check Steam and it was updated for purchase of the Katy Perry special edition. I wonder if EA and Valve are still frenemies. I was so excited I actually squealed.  Thankfully my coworker was at lunch. I can't wait to get home and install.

This my first time doing one that wasn't an SP. The SP's hardly took any time for me. I know expansions are bigger, but that's why I stayed up til midnight to start the download then went to sleep. Little did I know I would still have to wait another hour and a half at 1:40 in the afternoon. >:( Staring at this screen is killing me lol. I just thought I would give it a try since I wasn't super excited about Showtime like I was Pets, and I didn't mind if I had to wait to play. But I could have just gone to the store this morning, which is what I will be doing from now on.

I would have been far more inclined as well. On digital downloads, mine took about an hour or less. I simply use the origin manager to download the game quickly. It's really no different than a physical copy in my opinion.
