I preordered my SE on 14th of August from EBGames. Same place as I did with GTA IV. They have always been the best bet, imo. When i preordered GTA IV i walked in 3 of days before release to pay off the rest of my preorder and while no one was around me i asked if they had the copies ready and they did. After i bit of persuasion I handed the guy $50 for his own pocket and gave me the copy early without checking it out of the store, he then called me a few minutes before the midnight launch began and i handed over the barcode number, as we agreed, and he checked it out of the system with all the others as if the copy was sold on launch.
I wish he still worked there 4 days is too far away and i have a boring weekend.

Apparently Tesco cancelled some SE preorders. That's pretty fucked up, especially with it being so late.

I have the SE and CE pre-ordered at Gamestop. However I'm getting a copy of GTA V tomorrow morning from a smaller video game store. I guess instead of going in to the midnight release and dealing with 300+ people I will wait until the next day, and trade in my early copy for store credit towards the SE.
Edit: Due to people tagging the store and GTA V on facebook and twitter, and instagram, the shipment has been delayed until monday. I just cancelled it and got my refund. Will wait for my Special and Collector's editions and go to the midnight release I guess. I was hoping to avoid the midnight release line. I remember for GTA IV there was huge brawl at my gamestop. My other option is buying the standard edition for $120-$150 today. But I don't think 5 days early is worth it as much as I love GTA V. If it was 2 weeks early I'd definitely get it...Oh well.....
Edit 2: I got my copy Installing now...7,876 mb install on the 360.

I pre-ordered at some shitty little game shop at the mall. I wouldnt normally, but the little stores here don't get much stock at a time, it seems. Indonesia is super incompetent though, so i won't be surprised if i get it a day or two late -_-

You're all gonna tell me that I'm nuts (and I guess that I am) but I had to cancel my pre-order. I am so upset right now. But hey -- there will be another day, and I'll get to play it soon enough.
I just can't afford right now to buy an entire system, be it Xbox or PS3. I don't like using eBay and Craigslist, so I'm just going to save my dollars and plan to get it when I can. I'm moving to a new apartment in a couple of days, and I need to focus on getting things squared away financially first.
It kind of sucks being "old and wise." At the ripe-old age of 41, I wish that I could shave about twenty years off and enjoy having better hand-eye coordination (not to mention more energy). But on the other hand, at least I have enough wits to know that I'm making the right choices.
I'll be checking in on this forum from time-to-time until I get the game. It doesn't freak me out as bad as I may have made it seem to know details of games before I play them. I usually get naturally curious and I want to know a bit about what I'm getting into before I make the commitment of buying it. In this case though, I know that nothing will dissuade me from the purchase; I'm just going to be extra-judicious about what I choose to view, read, or listen to.
