Grand Theft Auto IV in stores now!

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 07:24 AM MDT | By Neil
It's April 29th in New Zealand, meaning the first gamers are now getting their hands on copies of Grand Theft Auto IV. Within the next hour, players in Australia will also be able to buy the game, and we've got less than half a day before it arrives in Europe. North American players will have to wait just a little bit longer.

There are just a few more hours to go before the Rockstar Games Social Club opens its doors fully, and that leaves just a few hours to register and enter the Custom Portrait Sweepstakes.

Um, actually, since some UK stores broke the release some gamers have had their hands on it for several days now.

Unfortunately I'm not one of them.

I'm an American soldier in Korea waiting for my copy still. The damn delivery service here is awful. I can't wait though. I think this will make it even more special. To all of you that now have it, I'll see you online with PS3 as echoranger. Lucky bastards!
