Lots of publishers will allow for new stuff to be pre-downloaded before a
specified release time. There was a time that it was probably helpful in
spreading the load out over time, but today it doesn't help much because
either everyone starts the preload at the same time, or people don't have
enough space on their console hard drives, so they have to delete the old
thing and download the entire new thing on release day. which also doesn't
help matters any.
