Any word on early release in the UK yet??

Shabba, i couldn't find anywhere selling it earlier, you'd think some dopey old cunt at Morrisons would sell it early by accident, but NOPE.

I think it's good that stores aren't selling it. It's building a lot of hype for the game. However, this means there's gonna be huge strain on the game's online servers on the 29th.

i dont even think it will be the first night that online has a struggle cause remeber CoD 4's servers were messed up for like a week after release and gta is gonna be on much bigger demand online so hmm might be a while before online is sorted

Apparently some shops (An Asda keeps getting mentioned) have accidentally sold a few copies today.

One friend has had a email from play.com to say his order had bin shipped today.

My best friend had a phone call from play.com today to say that his card had been refused, once he'd sorted this out. He asked when GTAIV would be shipped, the guy replied "We'll get that out in the post today for you" to which my friend asked about the R* agreement and if they were ignoring it, he replied "We pretty much are"

I think some people here in the UK will be seeing their copys, if tomorrow, Monday! If ordered from Play.com

Damn my SE pre-order is with amazon uk, I bet they stick to the agrement! as yet, I have had no email to confirm postage

Yep, got my copy about an hour ago. It's a shame my 360 got RROD the other day and still hasn't been returned. Sod's law.





Had an hour on it in the shop though, and I can sum up movement and driving in one word. SLOW. It may just be that I need to get to grips with it though.Detail is amazing. Steam coming from sewers, traffic lights swinging in the breeze. And the sound effects when skidding in the rain. Perfect.

Oh, and surviving on six stars for more then a minute is EVIL.

Apparently you can get it a day earlier from play.com that's all I've heard.

@Siriku : How did you get that now? Where did you buy it from?

Mate owns a Game Store locally, got his shipment in today. Anyone who put their name on a list, can come in today and get it.

I'm not going to divulge the name, you never know if people on a forum might want to report the shop, but eh.
