Why are digital copies being left out from the 24 hour thing it's gratuitous at this point not to release it at 8 or 6 pacific time since people who aren't youtubers can play it and don't tell me it's lvl advantage or cod points advantage.

To explain why digital copies in the US cannot be played for now yet people can play the game right now or later today:

 

  1.  Digital copies will unlock at the time that is listed in the PS Store or Microsoft Store and is set by Activision. For BO4 in the US, that time is 12 AM tonight eastern time, 9 PM Pacific.
  2.  Anyone that is playing the game now either lives in a country where BO4 has officially released, picked up their pre-order physical copy as the physical copies release a few hours early and was able to quickly download and install the game, or has gotten their hands on a copy early.

One silver lining is Treyarch has disabled the main EEs in each of the 4 zombies maps until 1 PM eastern time tomorrow so the entire community can work together to solve those EEs.
