Unhappy GTA gettin sent out on 28th in UK?wtf

i read this a while ago on gtagaming about how UK retailers had signed a contract sayin they wuld only send it out on the 28th.This makes me very skeptical on whether i will actually get the game on release day now as i live in northern ireland. I ordered my 360 version from play and i believe this site is based in america so im hoping that they wont hav to abide by this for a UK delivery.Culd anybody shed some light on the chances of me gettin GTA on the 29th?

first post BTW!!

Play send all of their items from Jersey. I'd be inclined to think that a modified agreement would have been made here, based on the average time it takes a Play.com customer to get their goods.

Have you ever preordered things from Play before? I know most of my friends get them on the day of release.

no, i dont think its fake but im sure the higher ups have taken this into account and if its a problem they would have allowed more time to ship.

It's not fake. A number of retailers have begun billing customers for the game simply because they've got so many to send out. They'll then be placed into the envelope and will sit in a giant pile waiting to be sent out on Monday.

I'm sorry guys, I don't know what more I can say. The game should be with you on Tuesday, but if it isn't, there will be plenty of stock in stores that you can grab instead. If yours doesn't show up, the best idea would be to buy a copy from wherever you can find it, and then when the copy you ordered online does arrive, return it to the store where you bought the OTHER copy, leaving it in the wrapper. They should accept the return (by law, they have to do this).

Those who spread rumors about GTA IV coming early are oblivously those impatient retards that hardly waiting to get GTA IV before next week. GTA IV is coming out on April 29, 2008 at midnight. period. if you don't understand the date then you are doomed.

All I'm trying to say is that if you get your hopes up for the game being delivered before Tuesday then you will most likely be disappointed.

i hope play.com have managed to secure a better deal, as play.com have always sent out preorders 2 days before release (looking at my order history) and they have always arrived on release day, and most other things i buy frpm play.com take 2-3 days to arrive

Using common sense, how the hell could Jack Thompson do that? He's a chump, no way he has that much power to even worry about it.

checked my status and it says "packing" for the game meanin its been prepared for dispatch and hopefully it will b sent out soon but i also ordered the official guide as part of a special deal but its still preordered and not available so does that mean theyre gonna keep the game until they can send it away with the guide cause god knows how long before release they will receive the guide
