One of the videos is quite clearly made by an English person i.e. they talk throughout. I wonder which UK retailer got the game to them early.

Also, ru7hl3ss = sG|Ruthless? I think I used to be in a COD2 clan with you!

Agreed, just as Niel said earlier, it is their own fault, and other companies such at Bungie who put the game to retailers a week early. I honestly don't know why they even have street dates anymore, I think the moment a store gets it in stock, they should be allowed to sell it. That way everyone is happy, and no one has to be afraid of getting GTA Rolled.

Gamestop then loses sales).

Honestly, if you do get it early (which I doubt, since you aren't proposing to publish a gameplay video), then I honestly and sincerely hope that you are banned from PSN/Xbox Live, purely from the fact that you are taking advantage of Rockstar North's inhability to prevent early launches from happening.
Why don't we use this logic for Africa? Sure does suck that the millions of kids in Darfur aren't even getting a GTA4 launch!

Not everything's fair, dude. I'm not gonna have a fit just because somebody got the game a week before me, and I doubt Rockstar would. It's just a marketing tactic to increase cravings and demand for the game.

Just to let you guys know, my parcel arrived as expected about 9 hours ago, game is awesome.

Was a mistake on behalf of the website, they've rang me and told me to keep quiet if possible ;P.
