Thumbs up I'm going to get the game at midnight

After the postman came today at 1:08pm, I decided I wasn't willing to wait until then to get the game tomorrow. So I'm going to head off to ASDA in Dunfermline (failing that, the nearby Tesco) for midnight tonight.

Once my online order does turn up, I'll leave the game in its seal and return it to ASDA or Tesco. Cunning plan-o-rama.

No, all copies of the game are identical, regardless of where you bought them.

Haha, brilliant plan. I don't trust online ordering after what happened to me with San Andreas (took a week to get it because they lost it).

its midnight for me as well. im just back from a tour of games shops including game, gamestation, asda, tesco and gforce in glasgow.

it must be a pretty heavy punishment on anyone selling early. oh and a word of warning in gamestation tonight the ones opening up for midnight sales are going to be asking people for id. the manager in union street glasgow told me today that anyone who cant provide id proving they are over 25 wont be getting in the store.

It didn't arrive this morning because the release date is tomorrow.

because it is easier to have some sort of id proving you are over 18. college i.d. as well as others are easily faked. where as if you have id proving your over 25 then its probably genuine.

Anyone going Smithdown Road ASDA in Liverpool? They reckon they aren't selling till 12.01am tonight. Personally, I believe that to be bollocks. Had a bad experience with PES6 - arriving early @ ASDA to find they had already SOLD OUT of all copies on all platforms. So, to guard against this tonight, I will be there for 11.00pm! GTA4eva!

In the store where I work (no, we don't sell video games, but we do sell alcohol and cigarettes, both of which have a legal age restriction of 18+ here) we ask for ID from anyone who appears under 25. If they can produce it and it is legitimate, we sell to them. The 25 age band just makes it easier for us to identify those who are over age as people from anything from 15 to 25 can look 18. Hell, I'm almost 21 and I still get asked for ID everywhere I go.
