2008 Retailers warn of GTA IV shortages
Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 06:24 AM MDT | By Neil
The games industry seems to be stronger than ever in the United Kingdom at the moment. Titles like Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit are seeing unprecedented demand and are selling out weeks before they hit shelves. The same fate now appears to be affecting Grand Theft Auto IV.
Some of the country's biggest retailers are now reporting that they will not be able to fulfill any more pre-orders of the standard edition of the game until some time after April 29, with others simply refusing to accept any more requests. The country's biggest games retailer, GAME claims that "We cannot guarantee delivery on the day of release for orders placed on or after the 7th of April". The same problem can be found on the websites of other chains which the company owns, Gamestation and Gameplay.
Online-only retailers are also facing shortages. Jersey based Play.com informs customers that "We are currently sold out on this item." for the PS3 standard edition, and Shopto.net ceased accepting orders some time ago. Those who have not placed their order yet may find themselves forced into buying the £69.99 Special Edition.
