Exclamation GAME money on online pre-orders

Quote:

Dear Customer

Grand Theft Auto IV is nearly here! Thank you for your order {xxxxxxx} for Grand Theft Auto IV. The highly anticipated GTA IV is due to be with you on Tuesday 29th April. To make sure that we get this title to everyone who ordered it for release day we have had to start our picking and packing process earlier than we would for our normal pre-orders. As a result, we may look to authorise your credit/debit card from tomorrow.

Kind regards Customer Services

GAME.co.uk
Game just sent me taht e-mail so tehy will probably be sending it out on the friday and giving evryone who ordered online a good chance to get it on the Monday 28th.

"Take2 have sent a street date agreement to online retailers to sign which means they cannot ship GTA IV until Monday next week (April 28), this also includes an embargo on staff getting copies either paid for or free."

Doubt they CAN send anything out Friday.

That only covers online. Games exchange shops probably don't have to sign or if they do, they don't really care about letting it out early.

I won't tell, promise.

that would make it RIDICULOUSLY hard for teh game to get to owners teh next day

in the UK things normally get there a day or two later and there is no post on Sunday so sending on a Monday will cut it EXTREMELY short and if teh Post Office messes up GAME will not meet their release date delivery Garuntee!

so we will just have to see or wait til i get a email that confirms it has been sent!

Both online and retail stores have the same rules, in Denmark they have at least.

As soon as anything goes through the cash register before release, they can see it at the headquarters and the store/store manager is hit with a heavy fine.

ah but i dont think they go through the cashier i think tehy take the money once it is shipped and they will have to ship on the Friday or latest Saturday for it to get to the customer by the latest of Tuesday but it will more tahn likely get there on Monday.

We'll see, just talked to a friend who works at the largest online game shop in Denmark, they aren't allowed to send the game out until Monday. Worst-case-scenario, people who pre-ordered late won't get the game until Wednesday. But they will work overtime and bring in extra hands monday to get all the orders out.

So they'd rather have customers get the game later than sending it out earlier.

Believe me, street dates are broken here all the time - I've seen games on shelves up to 4 days before release.
But talking to various friends and relatives who has to do with selling games, they won't do it with GTA 4, the repercussions are far too great.

This is not to annoy you, I'm just telling you what I've been told I also posted a snippet on Rockstars response, just wanna save you the disappointment when you see the game is being sent out monday anyways. They just need to package the game earlier due to the demand.

Sweet, sweet sweet sweet!
Got the email too.
Does it mean that people who got the email will definitely get a copy delivered to them on the 29th?

BTW: To anyone that has ordered from Game before, I ask you this: if you aren't at home when the game is delivered, will they drop it off at your neighbour's, the post office, or wait until you are home on day?
