    So, does this mean that we can download the game now and then use the code on Monday to pull in our particular information or will we still have to wait until Monday to download anything at all. If that is the case it seems pretty shabby to pull us in a year ago only to be put at the end of the line now.

    Yep, and it looks really bleak depending on when the code comes out. I didn't get my e-mail containing the information about the code coming out on the 8th until around 10:30 pm.

    Oh. I wasn't aware that there was an email. I thought they were just going to post on the forum. I did not get an email, either.

    I agree with your comment BUT I do appreciate their change in direction. Prior to this announcement there are no console transfer announcements at all on the site or forums. There is info but no announcements.

    It's a BIg step in the right direction for ZOS

    We are working with our console partners on exact times so we don't have exact details yet. So to be 100% clear the second you receive your email, your code is live and available to be pre-loaded in preparation for Tuesday.

    @Lord_Arkala, the day one patch is live now as part of the preload.

    Lol love how they say we encourage you to pre load early so you can jump right in......oh but you pc transfers can just wait till the 8th. Really thought they would have got this worked so we could atleast get maybe one extra day. Thats not too much to ask is it? Oh plus preorders get to download the 15 gig update early as well. No waiting for them come the 9th. Go figure......This just keeps gettin better and better. O_o

    I can appreciate that you are not in full control of when the codes can be used, and therefore cannot give an estimate at this time as to the timing of the e-mails. However, once given the green light on the 8th, will all e-mails be sent at relatively the same time, or will they be staggered?

    I ask as I've been on both ends of what appears to be staggering regarding "PC-to-console Account Copy" e-mails.

    I appreciate that you may not have this information yet but it would be great if you could take this into consideration:

    If the emails with the codes for the PC transfer people come out on June 8 United States time then it seems to me that it these might arrive just before or after the release time for customers in some countries (e.g. New Zealand and Australia). It would be unfortunate if the dedicate long-term customers in these countries couldn't get into the game until after (perhaps significantly after) new players.

    Hopefully we won't be disadvantaged simply because we live in the future.

    Can you go over what has to be done after we get the code?
    Redeem the code.
    Download game.

    Then, something about joining accounts? Or do we do this first?

    And I won't be able to get it installed until around the 14th-20th, due to living in a rural area and having slow internet. Seeing this and the email containing nearly the same info I can't receive my code until Monday day before release is a sad day for me. :'(

    It's the same for me.. The only way is to download the game from an account who bought the game directly in xbox/PS store.. But nobody will give his account/password to allow someone else to predownload the game I guess..
    So just wait till monday and then... download till thursday/friday I suppose ! :'(

    Honestly, I am ashamed to admit, bought another copy just to get on so I could reserve guild names that I want.

    I had to make sure I will be on at mid-night.

    EDIT: I hope I can link accounts without have to erase and redownload.
