Can't buy Quantum Break on Steam?

So QB launches tomorrow. Steam has it listed as "Unlocks in 15 hours" - but the Purchase button is missing, and there's no price? I guess you can't buy QB yet? Anybody else seeing that?

What a surprise that when the counter said it would be available, it became available.

I get that there might have been some hopes of a pre-load or something, but sheesh.

Yeah, I was hoping for a pre-purchase/pre-load.
Any quotes on the games operation ?
My sys is minimal;
I7 3770K, 16 GIG OF RAM, GTX 770, anybody using a similar setup, and if so any suggestions
for this old gamer ?
As always, I will build a new sys when I have to.

it's running pretty decent for me, between 50-70 FPS on a mix of medium-high settings with no AA and upscaling on.

i7-4720HQ
GTX970M (+260/+500mhz OC).

Thanks for your response Raduque, however your sys is constructed with gear
that is much more efficient than mine. I haven't bought a game that I couldn't play yet, with reasonable graphics, so I was thinking that this one may be the one that would ( sink my ship ) so to speak. I will keep an eye on this forum in case another gamer will reply.
With that, thanks again,
Ronach

Originally the one I got for free from the WIndows 10 store for buying the console game was unplayable. It had huge memory leaks that dragged performance into the dirt (below 20fps), textures and models would disappear in the game world and cause you to get stuck and unable to progress and had to reload.

Hopefully by now these things are fixed. I have SLI but the game did not support it and the developer said they won't be bothering with it so I was out of luck there (seems to be a trend).

You're welcome Ronach. I missed a letter though in my GPU: It's the GTX 970M - about roughly equivalent to a desktop 960 chip.

I game on a laptop.

Thanks for the update Raduque, and in response to cmdrdredd, Steam has the game on their site and supposedly the glitches are worked out. Anybody try this game with a sys similar to mine ? Cmon guys, I'm stocking up on games for the winter, it's getting cold here.

Running the game at 60 fps give or take on Ultra settings. I have to admit though that it doesn't look near as good as I expected it would.
