I think people's desire to play the game now try to rationalize why the game should release already, and it doesnt help that they know there are hundreds or maybe thousands playing as we speak.

The set a release date like EVERY OTHER GAME HAS. What fucking point are you trying to make?
My point grandad is, that people are downloading the torrent....rather than actually buying the game from the shop....does that make sense to you?? Or do you have your handbag infront of you little face??

I wonder if all the stores who ordered copies have already gotten their shipment. If they did, I'd think they could and should release (world wide) early.

Maybe they wanna watch us slobber and drool all over our computer.

i think that for the most part people would praise an early release tomorrow.. but the pre orders bight be miffed that they have to wait till at least Saturday before it makes it through the mail... and possibly longer... but i wish that i had it for the weekend... it's not the fact that i have to wait a few more days.. its the fact that for 3 days after that my gaming time is severely limited XD then the weekend comes and i shall sit takeing the occasional meal and gorgeing on missions lol

it is not easy to know that a lot of people are playing the game right now, but I love rockstar and I'll wait 'till the 29th if I have to, I don't know why some people are so harsh to the OP, I feel the same way, but I won't ruin my 360 or disrespect the hard work rockstar put into the game, and I do agree that an early release date would be awesome, I know some stores have broken the release date and started to sell the game alredy.
To the OP, I read your post and I agree, besides you never said you were going to mod your 360, since the leak a lot of people seem very angry...

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.

Anyone thinking that the release will get moved up is fooling themselves. There is NO chance. Every form of media leaks these days and only in the rarest of occasions do things get bumped. If this was a month in advance it'd be more likely.

There is too much money invested in the marketing campaign of 4/29, from retailers/publishers etc. A pushed up retail date would cost Rockstar more than what they could potentially lose as they most definitely have contracts with retailers on hitting that date. There's still lots of retailers that havent even received their stock yet.

Some of you are giving the pirates too much credit. The percentage is so low of people that have modified consoles that its not going to make a dent and theres always a segment of people that never planned on buying it. Its a chore to mod the 360 and the losses are not really that great. Sure, it looks like a lot are downloading it, but the amount of people that are waiting is far far far greater. The game will still set retail records on Tuesday.

You made a mistake of thinking that and making a thread about it, Honestly.

Don't ask me why, I cannot answer.
