Gamestop Italy Release Date: 23/4/13...why?

Here in italy, in the web site and in the shops of GameStop, they tell you an official (for them.. but non-official for the rest of the world) release date of 23/04/2013... i don't know why, 'cause all the others GameStop in the world simply follow the RockStar Official News with the well known "TBA Spring 2013"

Just a temporary release date.

HMV has it at 5/4/13: http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProduct...;-1&sku=433764

So you'll see lots of diff dates on websites.

Ok ... but
Why they need to give a fake temporary date?

To get people to pre-order, people are more likely to throw an order down if there's a date there compared to just TBC, these companies can also change the date on the fly and be all like "Good News, the date has been brought forward" or "Sadly, the date has been pushed back from what we expected" when updating people on their order.

GTAV simply doesn't need this trick to get pre-ordered, expecially in Italy, that's why i'm wondering "Why?"

It's not a Rockstar or Take-Two choice, it's simply a distributor choice, some do it, some don't, that's the way it works.

It's a pity... at least GameStop can put some simple common rules for all their shops, in respect of RockStar.
the way it works can be always changed in the correct way...
