More than likely that message to play on March 5th just means it will be pre-loaded And ready to play at MidNight.
Technically right on March 6th.

That's still awesome though,you will be playing when most of us will be at a LOOOONNNNGGGGG MidNight realease(IE:ME.I'm getting it for my PS3,because my PC sucks.)

Happy Gaming!!!

And how to you suggest I go about doing that? Steam and origin automatically route me to a server that has the desired content on it. I don't have any control over which one it is. that and I don't know how many servers they have.

Also with the example above, it actually happened and I wasn't the only one with this issue. I was talking to someone from the UK, America and Canada at the time, as we were all good to go for playing some Cooperative in L4D as soon as it came out. heck we even stayed up for it.

all 4 of us had the same issue so it wasn't just isolated to the server I was connected to. Either that or Steam only has one content server.

Change your Download Region

Try changing your Download Region to see if it affects the issue:
On Windows

Start Steam
Go to Steam > Settings > Downloads tab
Under Download region, select a different but relatively close region.
Try launching or installing the game once more

On Mac

Start Steam
Click on Steam > Preferences > Downloads tab
Under Download region, select a different but relatively close region.
Try launching or installing the game once more

I'm out of my element, but always willing to help. So I do hope this is what Skyheart meant.

Exactly.

Thanks Monkey.

Could be, even though the at the bottom its says "release date: March 5, 2012". Either way I can't wait. Plus I work from home on Tuesday's and Thursday's. Guess I'll be having some long breaks from work on Tuesday

Too bad about your PC, you can't take advantage of the great trainers here. Playing on a big screen will be nice though I'm sure

I would say its a miss print. Since the yanks officially get it on the 6th. Then Europe get it on the 9th. And yes it has to be decrypted before play.

Actually once it pre-loads and install, if you go and run it, it will say when the game is released. Mine releases at 11pm (23:00) on Monday, March 5. Seen a few folks say their's unlocks at 9pm PST. So yay for midnight release EST.

Drakonis, what time zone are you in? I'm in CST so for me it will be 11pm March 5th release (midnight Eastern). For Skyrim I was level 4 before midnight my time and level 6 by the time my friend called to tell me he was starting the install from the disc, I laughed the whole 20 minutes it took for him to install and get to the character creation

Pre-loading now... will have to pack the mini-fridge full of soda while I sit here with my mouse hovering the ME3 icon for the next 3 days...
