I think Rockstar are making a mistake not releasing the game tomorrow....

or closer that Tuesday.....See, now i KNOW i can get the game illegally.....it makes me think, now on one hand, i could leave my house RIGHT now and get my 360 chipped and get the game for less than 40 quid....on the OTHER hand i could wait until Tuesday...and spend 40 quid +...and buy the original....i'd much rather get the original, but i do say, i'm tempted to get it right this second.....

No, Rockstar is not making a mistake. And it's not as simple as "going to get it chipped".

You have to crack into the system, voiding your warranty, mod some of the hardware, update and install the firmware, then wait while you dishonestly download a 7 GB file.

Quit being a fuckstick and wait until Monday night like everyone else.

I sense a ban coming your way. Or disciplinary action of some consequence.

Most don't bother with chipped xbox's, seeing as it can get you banned from Live, unless you have 2 xbox's.

This is an interesting topic actually, and the possibility of an early release was something which I considered when the leaks first started yesterday.

The conclusion I came to in my mind is that releasing the game early would be like admitting the hackers had won. It just isn't going to happen. However! There is a real possibility that retailers may feel they're losing out to the pirates and take their own action, or if one does so, then the rest follow suit. The latter situation seems to have already occurred in Australia, where DVD Crave were the first to break the release date.

ugh.. no rockstar is not making a mistake.
every big release (games, movies, cds) gets leaked, its just how it goes. rockstar has a set date, they're not gonna change it just cuz some people have the game now.

The amount of people with chipped xboxs are too insignificant to enforce anything like this. Besides its unworkable, sme stores wont have their stock yet and will have reason to sight an unfair market.
