It's now 5 days away. You have to get past the weekend, go to school or work or college or uni on Monday, and then when you wake up, or even at midnight for the lucky few, you'll be able to play the game.

If you don't have enough patience to wait 5 more days after a 13 month wait, then you have no self control.

The moral of the story is this: you've waited 13 months for this game. You respect R* for making the greatest game series ever, yet you're willing to pirate the game, therefore not giving R* the money they not only need, but deserve, just to play it a few days early.

Make the right choice people.
AMEN!!

Its unfortunate because the battle to stop piracy is a losing one really... the only sure methods of doing it have too many problems associated with it.

Downloading it is just as bad as walking into the store, taking a copy and putting it under your shirt- software piracy is just a way for those keyboard heroes who have no self esteem or guts to commit a crime without physically doing it. I'm still a little bemused that Rockstar didn't break the date now so stores could sell it and stop those impatient people who were going to buy the game from downloading it.

Here's hoping that MS are able to knock off everyone who is using a modded console to play the pirated versions.

I hear you, but the problem is that all you're doing is simply restating the existing morality as it pertains to downloaded cracked/ripped games. Someone who is using a pirate version is probably quite accustomed to dling cracked games already, so it's not as if they're going to just experience a moment of morality and decide not to do it just because it's Rock$tar.

The problem with software piracy is that it's only legally piracy in certain countries. Canada and Sweden, for example, don't have any laws against sharing software, music and movies. Until there is an international agreement on the legality of file sharing, developers will always be playing catch up with the sharers.

I will be honest I have several pieces of pirated software for my PC, but to go and download a copy of the most anticipated game of the decade after they have poured there blood, sweat and tears in to this game is putting the future of this great series in jepardy! buy the game and show your support!

I could not have put that better myself! over the past few months I preached to my friends who have no problem playing pirated copies, to atleast wait and purchase the original genuine copy because Rockstar deserve it!!

I did not win however, as they are playing it right now.....while I am getting my GTAIV fix by searching this site every hour....
