Special delivery? And if so did you originally order it with special delivery, or did they just send it that way?

Yeah it was. And I think all the special editions must come like that. I didn't order before the 8th either.

Just spoke to play.com

All the posted dates were a lie.

They had to legally hold them back until Monday(yesterday) and then send them all out on first class delivery.

The woman also said it's first come first served, she said some people ordered like 2 years in advance so they should definately have theirs. I ordered mine on 14th of April. I quote, "It's a first come, first served basis".

How the hell this can be true when they are all held back and sent out together I don't know.

She said people who haven't got them today will definately recieve tomorrow.

I for one though won't be using play.com in the future...


Oh btw, collectors editions are with parcel force and normal edition with royal mail

I agree it should have been sent earlier at the latest Saturday but when companys are saying to you if your wanting to sell the biggest game of the year then you must agree to x y and z terms then there's nothing you can do. Play either disagree and lose a fortune or agree and try and make it arrive as quick as possible by doing what they did. Maybe they should have done what Amazon do and offer next day delivery for an extra but unfornately they dont.

I'd be pissed off if i was in your shoes and maybe the companys who signed this agreement should have been more open with that it wont get posted until Monday or maybe they never know of it until in they took stock of there delivery of games.

In the future we'll know though since this'll no doubt become the norm to go to midnight releases if you want the game ASAP.

I didn't get mines either.

I'm not happy with play.com I will think twice about using them again. It's not just GTA IV, I've ordered 4 or 5 items since April 20th and so far only one of them has arrived (the Muse CD). Another CD I orderd was posted on Saturday and it's still not here. What are they doing? Sending it second class or something?

In actual fact I didn't get a single piece of mail today. I think all these GTA IV pre orders might be affecting the postal service in general.

This is why I said to most people who ordered with play.com "I'd be surprised if you recieve it on release"

They have shitty customer service, don't use them for pre-orders.
