Alright everyone, back to the original topic at hand. I've been in many shops today looking around at how much stock they had of this supposedly highly sought after game which has seen unprecedented demand and preorders. That's what we're told anyway.
ASDA had sold out in both stores I visited. That was somewhat surprising, but I did get there about 2pm. Argos had plenty and the man in Zavvi said to me that "we have loads mate", so I bought one from him thanks to the student discount. £63.00.
As a general reflection on GTA, I'm revising what I think about the in stock situation a little to say that if you want a copy and you don't have a preorder, go to a store like ASDA or Tesco as early as possible. I don't think we're at the situation where all of the stores who were offering preorders will have pre-sold all of their allocation, but the earlier you get there, the better chance you will have.
As usual though, the demand will vary by region. I heard reports of lots of copies at ASDA, but the stores in my area had none.

i don't think it will sell out anymore either. not because its not great. for example, i went to gamestop at lunch, and they were STILL taking preorders. and thats gamestop

Haha, it's incredible how many of the posts in this are irellivent (sp). I get what you're trying to say Neil (though the first post is a bit misleading). Just with most other games, getting it without a reservation isn't too hard. You may wait a week or so, but it's not so bad. You just have to scope for them a bit more.
Also, I don't get all the Wii bashing here. I don't own one, but I think they're pretty cool. I agree that a GTA on the Wii is completely plausible, and if marketed well, could be a smash hit.
GTA on Wii could be pretty cool, It wouldn't be anything like GTAIV, but that doesn't mean it would not be "next gen". The Wii may not be "next gen" if all you look at is power and graphics, but it offers some novel ideas to gameplay. And isn't Rockstar all about novel ideas?
My 2 cents.
