Given the way the these things are staged, the pre-order/pre-load model
works pretty well. I would expect that many users sufficiently
interested in Battle Field 3 to acquire it for launch day, already had a
copy cached locally that unlocked itself at the right time. Mine did.

To the extent that cached content can be tweaked via patching the
distribution system can substantially anticipate the release of product.
