Amazon is delivering our copies today. He was a late pre-order.

Can he play today after inputting his key? or does he have a $60 paperweight until the 19th-20th?

Not unless he has early access, no.

Depending on when he entered or enters his pre-order redemption code, he might get Early Access. However, as you KNOW the official launch is the 20th of December, so you KNEW that you couldn't be able to play until then anyways.

If today's Waves work all the way through December (And chances for that are pretty good), then yes, but probably not on the first wave.

If however they don't make it through December today (Pre-orders probably spiked this week for instance) then probably tomorrow.

I will also be getting my game today, wow I was scared that I would not get it on time.
But yeah he should get in today, though he should have pre-loaded from bioware, or he might have to wait a little for some things to update.

Oh, quit being such an apologist. I've been accessing the game since first 30 seconds of EGA. Just wanting to play with a friend (people have these, you know!).

I don't know for sure, but guessing by how the Early Access waves have been going so far. You are next in line for your email letting you play.

I would assume the product key and an EGA key are completely different
